Readers have been asking us for some time now to produce an iPad app for Design News. I'm happy to say that the app is available. It actually has been available for a few months, but we haven't done a great job at getting the word out. Simply go to the app sore, search for "Design News," and voilà. Once you have the app, you can download individual issues of the magazine.
The iPad app provides a great way to catch up on articles from all the issues of the magazine. The articles get posted as the print publication becomes available each month. Once you download the issue, you don't need to be connected to the Net to read it. So you can enjoy your favorite publication in a plane, at the beach, or wherever you happen to be.
Richard, congrats for the deliverables. I have a concern also; most of the members residing outside US are using Android/windows Smartphones, so if you are able to make an app for Android and Windows, that's very helpful.
Samsung's Galaxy line of smartphones used to fare quite well in the repairability department, but last year's flagship S5 model took a tumble, scoring a meh-inducing 5/10. Will the newly redesigned S6 lead us back into star-studded territory, or will we sink further into the depths of a repairability black hole?
In 2003, the world contained just over 500 million Internet-connected devices. By 2010, this figure had risen to 12.5 billion connected objects, almost six devices per individual with access to the Internet. Now, as we move into 2015, the number of connected 'things' is expected to reach 25 billion, ultimately edging toward 50 billion by the end of the decade.
NASA engineer Brian Trease studied abroad in Japan as a high school student and used to fold fast-food wrappers into cranes using origami techniques he learned in library books. Inspired by this, he began to imagine that origami could be applied to building spacecraft components, particularly solar panels that could one day send solar power from space to be used on earth.
