So what does vigilance look like? IE security flaw reminds us – vigilance looks boring and it will save you time, money and hassle.

I heeded the call, I left Windows XP behind after all those beautiful years together! Now that we find ourselves squarely on the other side of Windows XP “End of Life” Support, a vulnerability is uncovered that reminds us to remain vigilant and stay on top of patching. We preach it, we sell it and we can’t stop repeating it – sometimes, a lot of the time, the simple stuff saves the most time, money and effort.

What The Bradley Timepiece can teach us about inclusive design.

Wednesday, April 23rd, 2014

Last week I heard a story on NPR about an innovative piece of technology and design that is both functional and inclusive – and it is wristwatch. (They call it a timepiece because you don’t have to “watch” it all the time, I’ll explain.) The interview was profiling the origins of The Bradley by Eone which is a tactile timepiece designed to not just show the time but allows users to “feel” the time as well. The time can be seen or felt as two ball bearings are driven by magnets around the clock face. It was created in collaboration with people with vision loss but has proven just as popular with the sighted population. Maybe because it is so good looking and possibly because we want to know what time it is without having to look? A stroke of genius for those stuck in long meetings?
