Alex, thanks for the iPad App. Is there any similar App for Android based Smartphones and tablets. I think most of the non US members are using Android/windows based devices and if you are able to come up any similar apps for such devices are helpful.
DesignerMan, I do actually understand and support your point. However you do undercut your "different strokes for different folks" with the muttered "over-rated iPad" comment, no? DN already has a very nice standard website - I'm surprised you're not accessing that now.
Veering back briefly on topic, congratulations, DN, the new app looks great!
Now come-on..be nice.Different strokes for different folks. At the risk of going off topic the PlayBook has got an undeserved bad rap. It's got the fastest browser in the tablet world and most of the initial issues upon launch are behind it with the latest OS update.The original iPad had a number of major issues you may recall.
My point was that HTML5 type sites/apps work cross-platform for EVERYONE, whether users of Apple, Windows, Android, BlackBerry or anything else. They are like having your cake and eating it too!
As opposed to focussing on and wedding DesignNews to a particular (overrated) platform, an HTML5 tablet optimsed site that could be deployed similar to an app on multiple platforms seemlessly would be preferred. That way BlackBerry PlayBook and Android users would be brought into the fold and you would be future protected.
Looks like the big advantage is the ability to see a feature article as it's shown here (as a spread), as opposed to the way feature articles now appear on our website. For those who like to read the longer feature articles, this should be a big step up.
As energy efficiency becomes more and more a concern for makers of electronics devices, researchers are coming up with new ways to harvest energy from sound vibration, footsteps, and even electromagnetic fields in the air.
The government wants to study your brain, and DARPA wants to use similar information to give robots true autonomy beyond any artificial intelligence developed to date. Sound like science fiction? It's not.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
