Samsung's latest ad follows surfing professionals and isn't cringeworthy

24

Samsung has released an video for its involvement with the ASP (Association of Surfing Professionals). The company really is a hit or a miss when it comes to marketing its own family of products. Samsung's attempt to take over Terminal 5 at Heathrow was met by a mixed reception, while its recent Galaxy 11 football-match-to-save-the-world adverts are just strange. It's pleasing to see the company has returned to simple, yet effective presentations.

Material Design-inspired Google Play app update now rolling out

65
The New Google Play

Materiyolo

As shown off at Google I/O 2014, the new version of Google Play is beautiful, heavy on the Material Design, and starting to push out now to regular folk like you and me.

While much of the interface is unchanged, when you dive into an application's page (or a book, or movie, or music) you'll see the big changes. New animations, new badges, an awesome header of the associated video (if one is included) are just the beginning, and the whole design of the new content pages looks to have been built from scratch with the new design language.

There are some changes to get used to, as well. Content descriptions now are displayed full screen, and this is where you'll need to look to see any change logs. This is also where you'll find information like version number, the last update time, or the number of downloads.

It looks very nice and has us pumped to see the next version where more of the design has been updated.
