  • An iPhone World Without Verizon or AT&T? - Hardin Design & DevelopmentHardin Design & Development
    that the iPhone changed the mobile industry was the fact that it upended the relationship between the handset maker and the wireless carrier Apple sells many of its phones directly to customers and in general has much more of an upper hand with carriers than most phone manufacturers But venture capitalist John Stanton who was friends with Steve Jobs in the years when the iPhone was in development said the Apple CEO s initial vision was even more radical he wanted Apple to build its own wireless network using unlicensed Wi Fi spectrum thus bypassing the carriers altogether People often miss the fact that beyond completely revolutionizing the smartphone industry the iPhone triggered a pretty profound shift in the balance of power between device manufacturers and networks Companies like Apple and Google which develops Android sell a variety of software and services that capture revenue streams that might have otherwise gone to the operators Stanton advised operators to take some chances with new phones and services rather than invest too heavily in established offerings Sprint for instance has been criticized for making a 15 5 billion four year deal with Apple to sell the iPhone U S Cellular however has revealed that it decided that it would not be a good investment to similarly take on the iPhone This shift in power has allowed Apple s production and sale of the iPhone to be immensely profitable As the above charts show the profit share of the iPhone far outweighs its actual market share meaning that Apple is keeping a bigger piece of the pie than other manufacturers for the devices they sell One can only imagine how profitable the iPhone would be if Steve Jobs vision had become true and Apple had been able to cut out the networks altogether

  • Is Google+ Dead? - Hardin Design & DevelopmentHardin Design & Development
    After several public posts in the summer co founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin dropped off the site in the fall they only started posting once more when bloggers began pointing out their absence Eric Schmidt Google s executive chairman and former CEO posted his first public message when Steve Jobs died That was three months after the social network went live Google has seemed from the beginning to be a very Microsoft esque mistimed product too late to a party already dominated by Facebook While Google seemed to have some innovative concepts when it first launched it only took Facebook a few months to incorporate all of them into its much more polished product which by the way has a few more users While it will be interesting to see how much effort Google continues to put into pushing Google it seems like the writing is on the wall for its plug to be pulled Tags Facebook Google 6 Responses to Is Google Dead hardin November 9 2011 The Slate article that inspired this post did a good job of comparing the different between a social network and a conventional web application as well But a social network isn t a product it s a place Like a bar or a club a social network needs a critical mass of people to be successful the more people it attracts the more people it attracts Google couldn t have possibly built every one of Facebook s features into its new service when it launched but to make up for its deficits it ought to have let users experiment more freely with the site That freewheeling attitude is precisely how Twitter the only other social network to successfully take on Facebook in the last few years got so big When Twitter users invented ways to reply to one another or echo other people s tweets the service didn t stop them it embraced and extended their creativity This attitude marked Twitter as a place whose hosts appreciated its users and that attitude and all the fun people were having pushed people to stick with the site despite its many flaws Twitter s frequent downtime for example Google by contrast never managed to translate its initial surge into lasting enthusiasm And for that reason it s surely doomed Reply Nyagoslav November 10 2011 If I was getting 1 cent every time I heard Google is Dead I was going to be a billionaire No it s not dead It s just getting started Reply hardin November 10 2011 I appreciate the reply Nyagoslav Are you an active Google user I d be interested in your impression on the actual active community on Google versus the people that just created accounts when it launched and abandoned them which seems to comprise most of my friends on Google Do you see a pretty active user base Reply Aaron Heinen November 10 2011 For me the biggest reason I never saw google taking off was

  • Designing for Phones vs. Tablets - Hardin Design & DevelopmentHardin Design & Development
    be unveiled when the app launches in the app store but I wanted to share some of our experiences designing an app optimized for both iPhone and iPad When producing an app for both platforms it s important that your apps share an overall design philosophy but also that each design takes advantage of the platform that it is running on Designs for iPad HD versions of apps should not just behave like really big iPhone apps Even if they share a codebase as ours do simple techniques like building different cell renderers for UITableViews can make the iPad version of an app feel like a native tablet app even if it is using the same codebase as an app designed for a smaller platform like the iPhone Here is the design we came up with for the iPad version which is running an identical UIViewController class with the only difference being the cell renderer Tags Apple Hardin mobile One Response to Designing for Phones vs Tablets att systems March 13 2013 These are really enormous ideas in on the topic of blogging You have touched some good things here Any way keep up wrinting Reply Leave a Reply Click

  • Porsche + Blackberry, Really? - Hardin Design & DevelopmentHardin Design & Development
    t buy a Porsche for how it looks You buy one for how it works And the same could be said of a BlackBerry The favorite communications tool of businesspeople worldwide and a number of private consumers as well the BlackBerry is like a Porsche more about function than form Leave it to Porsche Design then to up its style factor Porsche has been thought of as a design inspiration for many great pieces of technology Steve Jobs for example credited Porsche as a design inspiration for the first Macintosh but this seems pretty lame Add to that the 2 000 price tag and it gets even sillier As RIM continues to slide further downhill I m not sure which is worse this or BBX Here s my Porsche See the resemblance Tags Blackberry Porshe 2 Responses to Porsche Blackberry Really Aaron Heinen November 2 2011 The only resemblance I see is a reflective glare Granted the phone itself does look slick but for Porsche to have its brand on it I d expect some James Bond drive your car from your phone functionality Reply hardin November 9 2011 Yeah I don t even think it looks particularly slick it

  • It's About Time, Augmented Reality - Hardin Design & DevelopmentHardin Design & Development
    I found two new articles about adding graphical layovers to our normal view of the world The first is an interactive app using iPads that allows users to place virtual objects in the real world and view them via the iPad s camera video here The other is a video that was just released from Microsoft looking at the possibility of complete virtual overlays on things from street curbs to refrigerators overkill but interesting to look at the possibilities I think part of the excitement about augmented reality is the imagining of what could be such as the representation of 2010 back in the 1970s There are many different apps out there already Layar for Android is a do all browser while the iPhone apps can be found here that have these abilities I think mobile devices are the perfect way to introduce this technology with as many people carrying smart phones as there are especially with the iPhone 4S release The truly exciting days to wait for are when normal eye glasses are able to represent this kind of information Now we just need to hope that augmented reality data becomes more useful to our lives than extravagant or
