THREE FOR BART: iPhone, UX, Fast

  1. I followed my stolen iPhone Across the World, Became a Celebrity in China, and Found a Friend for Life – I shared this with a  friend who has intimate knowledge of China. Which is to say he’s lived there, speaks Mandarin, and regularly conducts business there. His response: 1) That’s so very China, 2) That’s f*cking hilarious. I imagine he’s spot on. And if you’re anything like me, you’re jealous – if not inspired – by the adventure. That’s not to say I want my phone stolen but I’m super down to be an international celebrity.
  2. I Paid a UX Expert $100 to Get Drunk and Evaluate Gizmodo’s Design – First of all, if you want to pay me $100 to evaluate anything of yours while I’m drunk, I’m more than happy to do it. Email me at Pachoops25@gmail.com. Kthanks. Secondly, the timing of this linkage is unique as ESPN – my favorite sports site to never visit – just got a redesign. This is ESPN’s first overhaul in five years. What do you think? Considering I haven’t used it much for customization (I’m rarely logged in) I’m not convinced it’ll work great for me just yet. But I can most certainly appreciate change. And I love UX.
  3. The Fast and the Furious: A Postmodern Masterpiece – Endings are always romanticized. Just read what I had to say about Arizona’s loss to Wisconsin. Or Wisconsin. Or Ohio State. Or Bucknell. So as we come to the end of this fascinating series where Paul Walker’s ID in the first iteration puts him living blocks from where I grew up, here’s a look at the franchise and it’s place as art.
