Min or Naw

I’ve really enjoyed this journey with Design That’s It. I’m considered a slightly major design/brand change that might better represent what this blog is all about. I’m considered rebranding DTI to “min”…. short for minimal, or minimalism. I’ve been thinking about this for quite some time now and I’d rather do it sooner than later. […]

PERFECTION

We are reaching a point of interest in the world of hardware engineering and industrial design. For decades desktop computers have dominated when it comes to advanced productivity. But the world is mobilizing and work is becoming less and less local. Desktops are also huge energy consumption devices, and a lot of people may not […]

DON’T EXPLORE, JUST DO

Hey everyone! I’m back from my unannounced hiatus. I apologize for the wait, but on the bright side, I’ve been doing a lot of thinking lately lol I know its cliché, I did that on purpose. Recently news broke that Microsoft has just finished up laying off the last batch of Lumia engineers and designers from […]

HELIX DESIGNS YOUR SLUMBER

I mentioned in my CodeAcademy post that every seemingly mundane aspect of human existence is being smartized. Well, Helix Sleep is a perfect example of this paradigm shift. Not only that, Helix Sleep is placing a huge emphasis on quality design in the mattress buying process. Yea, their vision does away with mattress warehouse and its […]

Welcome to the Future

Do we only see a revolution after it has passed? This is something I’ve wondered time and time again. I am so incredibly fortunate to have been born a few years before the turn of the millennium. Sony’s Walkman MP3 player had broken barriers for mobile computing and the laptop would soon do the same. […]

Smartwatches of the Future: Apple Watch

I have been thinking about this post for a long time now, but I have been quite tied up the past few weeks. So much has happened in the ever evolving world of mobile tech: Samsung’s new suite of galaxy and gear fit products, Apple’s iPhone and Apple watch unveiling, and Microsoft’s Windows 10 to name […]

A New Microsoft

It is no question that I, the Single-Editor of Design That’s IT, have a particular liking for almost all things dealing with Microsoft. I am not afraid to admit to this because it comes with a reason that reaches much deeper then the following: I love their products, I like their services, I like Bill […]

CES: The 4K Invasion

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nB_LFEAhK34 “If you haven’t been keeping a close watch on CES 2014, I apologize as I promised to do the heavy lifting for you, but don’t fret. Next few post tilted “CES: …” will cover my highlight observations of the Consumer Electronic Show this past week.” Use the photos above as a reference. A standard […]

Get Ready, CES is Right Around the Corner

Its sneaking up on us quickly. To my fellow geeks and technophiles, some of the most exciting days of the year are less than a week away. The Consumer Electronic Show of 2014 should quench the tech enthusiast thirst as we kick off the new year. I will be posting brief reviews and updates throughout […]

That is Really Thin

Minimalism is reaching the masses, or at least that is the underlying notion to some of the most recent entrepreneurial efforts. One of the basic roles of an engineer is to identify an issue in society and to find a method of fixing the issue. The issue hear, is that people tend to stack up […]

Wearable Gets Personal With Airo

We’ve heard about the Nike Fuelband, the Jawbone Up, and the Fitbit Flex. If you haven’t, all three of these devices are centered around autonomously measuring and organizing daily physical activity and sleeping patterns with the use of the very compact sensor technologies in the form of a simple wrist band. The concept behind wristband […]

Microsoft Goes Vegan

BREAKING NEWS. Microsoft has completed torn down the employee ranking system. If you’re not familiar with the system, Microsoft has for quite some time been using a heretical ranking system which highlights individuals that perform very well within the company. The point of the system was to keep competition fluid and alive and to discourage […]

Its Electric: Its Tesla Motors

Forget what you heard guys! Gasoline is an old story. Coal is an old story. Imagine if you had to fill up your phone with smelly, flammable, greasy  liquid to make a call. Imagine if you had to burn coal rocks under your refrigerator to start its cooling process. Life would be an awkward process […]
