YouTube – Windows 8 Concept

YouTube – Windows 8 Concept.

I am intrigued by the glimpses of the UI offered in this video… Can anyone point me to a shell replacement or other app that offers anything remotely like this?

New Twitter Design Follows the Golden Ratio

I knew there was a reason I like the new Twitter. The design is very pleasing, and so much more usable that the old feed-only view. Being able to pull up profiles, other feeds, etc. in the right-hand area, as well as the suggestions from the system as to who I should follow, etc. – is very useful.

The red line diagram superimposed over the new Twitter layout above represents the Golden Ratio – described at length in this Mashable article New Twitter Design Based on the Golden Ratio – an “irrational” mathematical constant found in everything from art to architecture.

Whatever the ratio, I like it! The new functionality of Twitter reminds me of the immediacy and feeling of Facebook, before they started making changes to the Wall news feed. I rarely if ever visited the actual Twitter.com, preferring to use either Seesmic or TweetDeck for accessing Twitter. Not so anymore.

Windows Theme/UI Update « Chromatic Pixel


Excellent run-through of design permutations and direction for Firefox 4, currently in development. I’m loving the Firefox button concept, shown above, that would house the current text menu. This is similar to the new UI design for Windows apps and Office 2007, and Office 2010.  Many other images are provided.
