Re: Dad Projects

Nice! Wish I'd built more of my kids furniture. Love the ASL block, by the way! Now I'm inspired to make something for my kids.... Not sure you saw in the older hearing aid post a while back, but in addition to me now wearing a hearing aid my son was born with a mild bi-lateral hearing loss as well...

Dad Projects

It's been 13 years since I attempted a piece of furniture, but finally did something for the babies room and was happy how it turned out so I thought I'd share. We bought him a nice bedroom set, but wanted an extra low book shelf that would fit under his window and double as an end table. It's an aw...

Re: Project: 1 Strike Hammer

This reminds me of something my dad had hanging in the garage when I was a kid. It was a very similar nicely finished Wooden frame with a gold plated/painted screw mounted neatly on a black felt frame with the word "Yourself" printed underneath. Took me a while as a kid to get it, but I get the same...

Looks like they made a backdrop out of skateboard grip tape. The JPG compression must love that one.

Re: Anybody else feel like this some days?

I had a bar code scanner that I worked on that was purely a high end design story. The president of the company at the time forced it ahead and we fought very hard not to water down or compromise the design. It wound up winning a ton of design awards but ultimately was a total commercial flop. I was...

Re: What is BMW doing?

the rest of the world thinks it wants a battery powered mini crossover not quite big enough for kids or sporty enough for driving. Sad but true isn't it. Give me a RWD wagon with a stick, no sunroof, a decent sized V8, an AUX jack, Toyota Landcruiser durability, and a big swinging door on the back ...

Re: What is BMW doing?

Not that I think that iWhatever concept is good looking, but I have more respect for them trying to push what differences they'd want for an electric car. Compare that to Audi's new e-Tron https://www.topgear.com/sites/default/files/styles/fit_1960x1102/public/images/news-article/carousel/2018/09/4c...

Re: various things like "ID I", "ID II", "jr.", "Staff"

Generally jumping from a tech track (individual contributor) to manager simply implies you either have direct reports and management responsibility, or you do not. In my current role we do I, II, Sr., Lead/Manager, Director, VP, C but we're a startup with a lot fewer shades and a generally younger t...

Re: A Macbook pro?

Good to see they make adapters, hadn't seen those (But I still like my HDMI port and otherwise dongle free lifestyle). We used a magnetic connector (nowhere near as small or elegant, but it was designed for rugged products): https://s3images.coroflot.com/user_files/individual_files/112513_q_jnemu8d0...

Re: A Macbook pro?

I still have the the old Magsafe 15" Macbook Pro, you can pry it from my cold dead hands. All my displays are Thunderbolt 2 so my desire to jump ship to USB-C/Thunderbolt 3 is zero.

Re: A Macbook pro?

The performance if you aren't doing massive assemblies should be pretty adequate. I'd just make the investment in the quad core 13" Pro so you get the faster CPU and additional thunderbolt ports.

I use a 15" Macbook Pro for UX primary with occasional very light CAD work (Alias) and it does the job.

Was that one RWD? I know for a while they sold the sDrive models which were RWD only but nobody ever actually purchased.

Re: Fairly absurd ID posting for Amazon

I once had to justify to the US Department of Labor that a UX Designer job was not the same thing as an RF antenna engineer. Classification is hard when you're relying on mostly out of date terminology and systems. The good news is those super poorly label jobs are easier to get because nobody finds...

Re: Fairly absurd ID posting for Amazon

I don't know that has anything to do with "design culture", they are a massive company and the person who does their HR likely saw "Mechanical Industrial Design Engineer" and somehow figured "Industrial Designer" was the closest thing in their Oracle system. It's quite clear from reading the job des...
