With most goggles, you have to pick the perfect tint of lens for the terrain that you most often ski (light purple, blue, rose, or clear lenses for overcast days; dark green, yellow, red, purple, or black lenses for bright, sunny bluebird days). And if the chances of the clouds rolling in or the sun popping out in the mountains are high (which they always are), you have to carry a second lens with you to switch out when the weather changes. But the Julbo Starwind is a one-lens quiver, thanks to the fact that it boasts the widest photochromic range available on the market (found in any Reactiv 0-3 lens). This means that the Starwind’s lens automatically adjusts its tint according to the amount of sunlight present. It’s like Transitions glasses, but way cooler. The goggles can transition from the lightest to darkest tint in a mere 22 seconds—meaning that you aren’t ever waiting on your goggles to convert. In fact, during testing, the transition was so seamless, I … [Read more...] about These are hands-down the best ski and snowboard goggles

Tesler, who had a license plate that read “NO MODES,” pioneered something different with Gypsy. To insert a word, you just placed the mouse cursor wherever you wanted to type. He also let users highlight words, dragging the mouse from the first to last letter, or just double tapping them instead. Along with a new copy function, this new UI added up to the workflow cut, copy, and paste as we know it—though I’d argue his greater contribution was every micro-decision about how the mouse should interact with words on the screen. Gypsy could be learned in just two to three hours. It was truly user friendly. … [Read more...] about A tribute to Larry Tesler, the father of user-friendly design
No wonder the Wall Street Journal printed an article headlined ‘China is the Real Sick Man of Asia’ with the strapline ‘Its financial markets may be even more dangerous than its wildlife markets.’ The nub of the article: ‘Given the accumulated costs of decades of state-driven lending, massive malfeasance by local officials in cahoots with local banks, a towering property bubble, and vast industrial overcapacity, China is as ripe as a country can be for a massive economic correction.
