WWDC 2010: Interview with Moodboard developer Chris Nurre {TUAW.com}

Jun 12th 2010 5:35PM This is a great product, I'm more of a developer than designer but still find it very useful.

I use it for connecting general design themes as well as bringing images from other applications (such as iMockups) to then associate with art/image samples to quickly generate something I can give to a client to review. The in-app browser screen capture and image cropping are definitely my favorite parts of the tool and something that sets it apart.

Ngmoco's We Rule is live, but buggy {TUAW.com}

Mar 22nd 2010 10:13PM Honestly never thought this game would interest me, installed and checked it out on a lark (due to it being free), and I have to admit I'm fairly hooked at this point. Even spent 2 bucks playing around with it. Impressed so far, early bugs notwithstanding.

How much are you willing to pay for eBooks? (Macmillan wants $15) {Download Squad}

Feb 1st 2010 9:08AM Couple things that stand out to me on this:

1) Aren't new release hardbacks going for significantly more than 14.99? I'm not saying I wouldn't rather pay 9.99 of course but the article above makes it sound like the 14.99 price is the hardcover price?

2) NyaR's comment brings up something the author of this article didn't, and that is the increased level of piracy of a digital version. In business terms piracy is essentially a cost, much like shoplifting for retail chains. So it is factored in to the cost analysis for the product, in addition to the items that the author did list.

Again, 9.99 obviously is better a better short term deal for consumers than 12.99-14.99, but it may not be as cut and dried as it sounds at first glance.

Second wing of Icecrown Citadel to open in 28 days {WoW}

Dec 9th 2009 7:10AM Oops, didn't see that someone had already posted this when I posted my reply to Lithpiper. I think you're absolutely right Miles! (Though I hope we're wrong since I'm looking forward to Cataclysm and would rather have it sooner than later).

Second wing of Icecrown Citadel to open in 28 days {WoW}

Dec 9th 2009 7:07AM Another take: IMHO this doesn't have to do with the holidays and has more to do with the timing of the Cataclysm release. Blizzard has said previously that they regretted the long delay between the fall of Illidan and the WoTL expansion. By doing this (Arthas around April) they can release the new expansion in Q4 (around November again?) and keep the time from the "end" of WoLK content and Cataclysm release to the stated ideal of a 6 month window.

I'd like to be wrong, I'd rather see Cataclysm earlier than later, but to me this indicates more than ever that we won't be seeing it until the end of next year.

The Queue: Still wishing for weather {WoW}

Nov 24th 2009 7:48PM Yes Blizzard, please bring back more prominent weather effects!

Don't blame EA for Dragon Age's inventory (or paid DLC) {Joystiq}

Nov 4th 2009 11:12PM Ewwww, "Real Life" suxxx, making you pay for a storage chest. I'll wait for the GOTY edition(used) before I get a "real life".

Damn EA, ruining real lives.

if only we had the choice to buy or not buy DLC. Then we could just buy it if we wanted it and didn't have to whine about it to voice our displeasure.

Hmmm? We aren't forced to buy it?

:/

Random House teases first few pages of Elder Scrolls novel {Joystiq}

Nov 1st 2009 6:01PM Surprised it hasn't been mentioned yet in comments but...

Floating castles/cities aren't as rare as you might think. In the Dragonlance series there were floating citadel's and of course in World of Warcraft the primary citty (in Lich King expansion at least) is Dalaran, which is a floating city (image link below).

Love the Elder Scrolls series (games anyway), hope we see another soon.
