Watch this Google I/O session on Android design principles because it's awesome


Jerry's Beard = Positive emotion
Those Sunglasses = Negative emotion
1 to 1 emotional experience, not good Jerry, not good.

her point about the last screen when people enjoy that blue effect and play with it.

its absolutely true. I loved it and play with it.

This was actually a big waste of time watching. They are connecting design to emotion throughout the entire presentation, which is all fine and dandy - but I honestly don't have time to sit here and watch them roll through stock photos and talk about how convenient and smart and joyful using Google Now is. I know it already.

I'm big on design, but these ladies - although talented - are terrible presenters and the slides were very rough. Thanks anyways.

I gave up after 10 minutes when I realized that they were babbling on verbally in precisely the manner that they were saying we're hallmarks of poor design. The irony of presenting the topic in a terrible, boring, uninformative manner is stunning.

I got lost when the Google Now exploration began, but before that, there are a few potential eyebrow raising underlying points that could help upgrade human relation courses, and our own lives if we take note.
