That sticker wasn't there for you to easily check in and out. It is used to promote the company that made these apples. That is why Chiquita banana is so well known. Thanks to those stickers and their ads. It's probably only used in the US to check out. Because where I live the cashier weighs your fruit before it has a price.
If charging for mobile products isn't required in future then the information of battery back up should be accurate and not say 'upto', this is one thing that must professionals want to avoid. They want accurate details on what they expect out of the product. I'm a righty and don't like the volume control on my iphone 5s.
I feel that products sold in India should have the volume control on the right side because of neurological reasons. I don't dig the mic and speaker design and cable design either.
Most importantly, I need ios 7 instead of ios 10
HAHAHAHAHAHA now Apple invented the "charged item once you open it.
It is true when they say that these cultists fanboy stay fanboy, no matter what.
One thing is to talk about design, and make good points, another is to go the extra mile and say that you solved a problem, that affect only people with serious anxiety about waiting to charge a product :) The problem is that there are people that can't wait to charge some overpriced stuff they just bought, and it goes side by side with having problems with a sticker, and don't think that maybe you want to wash the fruit :)
I've been thinking about why I am way more stupid as I grow up. I viewed the world was super-duper different when I was a child and I feel like all of my potentials is gone now.
Thanks for giving the answer.
Batteries back then were NiCads By the time they arrived at the customer they'd be discharged. With Lithium today pre-charging is a natural.
Now I'd like an additional charging mode: Plugged in, or preparing to go off-grid. Because keeping a Li-battery fully charged kills it.
Great talk. I have to apply the 80/20 rule to his speech. 80% is accurate, and aligns with Alibaba Jack Ma. He dismisses anything older than young which is very narrowed mindset. So he started building something good with his hands, and destroyed the speech with his feet. Mr. Fadell seems to be habituated on age, which opposes all the points of his talk.
I got to make up an item for school and don't got any ideas. Help!
Sorry for asking this here but does anybody know an imaginative item that is of great utility for an architecture student on (sign) excursion. Name the purpose (s) of the item and draw its use in its usage situations.
Amazing talk, I especially love the point about having a child like mind in order to create and solve problems better.
I've always wondered why i've got a non-conforming mind. I'm often bouncing outside old routines all others would be in, finding ways more efficient, even when I was in the Army. The ideas helped my peers but not always my hierarchy, as most were old school and stubborn. But turns out no one likes change until they're child minded also.
The sticker is an interesting one, so many ways to identify an apple. But you can't go too nuts, trying to modify it, cause customers still want to buy a normal APPLE. To marking the skin, to sticking the labels on the stalk. I could even think of putting the barcode on the batch of apples, where the apple came from, and then have a machine flash a batch number on the skin where it only pigments it, and then the register can scan that number.
Totally edible, but less simple
I'm a designer, much like Mary there. Can't sell squat. Even had the uspto deny a patent because I didn't define myself as small entity instead of my actual status which is micro entity. I sent them all of the documentation. I've discovered that one of the ways to actually change perspective in design is to literally be broke. Kind of stuck in an area, solving basic survival problems, and the resulting mental energy and flat out boredom, you start to notice what people aren't doing, in a big way. You can't afford a product, so you start curiously looking for better ones, whats out there, what would be better with less income, and you start improving it, automatically. I pay 10 bucks a month for internet, its well worth it, and it has slowly been turning me into a design genius.
How will a set of screws inside a packaging lead to increased sale? I get his point of practical inventions but I doubt people look inside the package to see what kind of screws there is before they buy the product.
Except if they first buy the product, find out it lacks practical screws in case they want to buy more of the same product. Then they risk to lose the upselling on that product on this specific customer.
But then they have to outweigh the cost of designing and produce these new screws against the lost revenue on only the specific customers that are potential upselling for more of the same product. And therefor it might be a risk that its not worth it.
Excellent Video clip! Sorry for the intrusion, I am interested in your opinion. Have you researched - Fiymaria Graphic Gainer (do a search on google)? It is a good one off product for getting the best graphic design for your project without the hard work. Ive heard some super things about it and my best friend Jordan after many years got great success with it.
I'm in tear
As an aim-to-be product designer, this is the best speech I've ever listened to. I'm now more confident than ever that product design is my path, to make the world better. Thank you so much Mr. Tony Fadell
Hey, would anyone potentially have time to answer a short questionnaire on sustainability to validate a uni project? :) Thank you so much! https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLScyGpv5RsHCG6IIxDZrX4nflmqnvbmiw7IgsKnb_UbUTVUD8g/viewform#responses
Marin Community Foundation and Asian Americans/Pacific Islanders in Philanthropy.
Overall, US-born Muslims make up the largest percentage at 34% of all Muslims in the Bay Area, followed by 14% born in Pakistan, 11% in Afghanistan, 10% in India, 3% in Egypt and 2% each in Iran, Jordan, Palestine and Yemen.
Silicon Valley Pakistani-American by the Numbers:
There are 35,000 Pakistani-born Muslims in San Francisco Bay Area, or 14% of the 250,000 Muslims who call the Bay Area home, according to the study. Bay Area Muslim community constitutes 3.5 percent of the area’s total population and is one of the highest concentrations of Muslims in the country.
As of 2013, South Asian Muslims, including Pakistanis, have the highest income levels, with nearly half (49%) of them having a household income above $100,000. In comparison, those groups with the lowest proportion of household incomes above $100,000 were Hispanic Muslims (15%), Afghans (10%), and African American Muslims (10%).
The Bay Area Muslim community is very diverse in terms of race and ethnicity:
South Asians (30%)
African Americans (9%)
Asian/Pacific Islanders (7%)
Based on the survey findings, the majority of Muslims live in the following three counties:
and Contra Costa (12%)
Thousands of Pakistan-born techies are working at Apple, Cisco, Google, Intel, Oracle and hundreds of other high-tech companies from small start-ups to large Fortune 500 corporations. Pakistani-Americans are contributing to what Erik Brynjolfsson and Andrew McAfee describe as "The Second Machine Age" in a recent book with the same title.
