Re: Anyone had any experience using borosilicate glass?

I remember hearing in the Core77 podcast with Craighton Berman that he had a good supplier for his product and was going to put it in the show notes (but I dont think that happened). You might want to contact him to see if he can help. http://www.core77.com/blog/podcast/afterschool_podcast_with_don_...

Re: Interstellar: A new low in Concept Design ?

The robots were totally unexpected and when I first saw them in the movie it just confused me but in hindsight if *spoiler* a giant speaking rectangle electrocuted my dad I can totally understand why the girl was terrified *spoiler*. By the end though as I experienced their complex personalities and...

Re: Core77 Podcasts

Just checked and Lunar still has a podcast going on itunes, it's just not that regularly updated. The Solidsmack one looks great too and will have to check out the others.

Thanks!

Core77 Podcasts

I really enjoy the Core77 podcasts and have listened to them all a few times.
Does anyone know if there will be any more?
And, can anyone recommend any similar podcasts to do with ID?

Thanks

Re: The other new phone!

IDAL that design looks better, but probably more irrelevant than the porsche one as people who don't have as much disposable income would be more discerning about what they buy.

I have an exclusive first image of blackberry's new smartwatch too:

The other new phone!

Blackberry just brought out a new Porsche designed phone.

Why Porsche, why?

Re: Apple watch and new iphone

When I go out now to public places I am going to hold my normal watch up to my face and say "Siri, what's the time?". It's the new white earbuds. In regards to Apple Pay I have been told that other phones have already done this for a fair while now, but I think it is Apple's pulling power that will ...

Re: Apple hires Marc Newson

Great comparisons Sain, I retract the comment about it not looking Newsonish (4th comparison did push the friendship though). To me the first thing I thought when I saw the body was that it had such a strong Apple feel, however, it does also have a very simple organic shape like Marc's stuff and par...

Re: Apple hires Marc Newson

Sorry I got to disagree with everyone about the watch looking Newsonish. The first thing I thought when I looked at it front on was that it looks exactly like a baby iPhone 3. I do feel a Newson vibe off it based on his past work but reckon if it wasn't announced a few days ago he was joining them (...

Re: Newly Released Work (All Product Types)

Well done there copyboy. I saw this the other day and was very impressed with the thought that has gone into it. To me the Alienware brand seems to be consistently doing great stuff for that demographic.

Re: Anything interesting to see in Munich?

SCIENCE: Deutsches Museum: http://www.deutsches-museum.de/en/collections/ I went to this museum a couple of years ago and it was AMAZING and would love to go back there. I could have spent all day there easily because there is just soooooo much to see. Just make sure you allow enough time for it. D...

Re: How do you decide between two designs?

Am I missing something - why can't you just ask this question to your professor now before the presentation? If you choose the one he likes at least you would have someone else in the room on your side.

Re: Beats and Ammunition

But I also like what Beats did together with Snarkitecture recently. I really love the look of those flat black ones but the Snarkitecture collaboration was one thing that triggered this thread for me wondering whether Beats is still as valuable without Ammunition. When I saw the Snarkitecture rele...
