One thing I really love is when someone a lot smarter than me rants about exactly the same things I do, only better. Mark Hurst of Good Experience nails a bunch of em, and I’ll summarize here, but be sure to read the short paragraph he adds to each of them.
Mark says: “These are things that NEED TO STOP:”
Cell phones that make noise when they turn off.
Cell phones that require a password to check voice mail.
“Gray text is cooler.”
“Small text is cooler.”
“Non-underlined links are way kewl.”
There are a few more, but these just so nail it that I thought I’d bring it up as a public service. If you’re guilty of encouraging any of the above, stop it.
