For design that's held up as the apex of ability and style, cars sure do all look the same.

Blade Runner - Final scene, "Tears in Rain" Monologue (HD) https://t.co/XOY80HTGx2You basically drive the user/customer into the arms of disruptors like Amazon, or Uber for that matter.It's a sure fire way to alienate your most passionate users. I suppose that's the drawback, your value has that much farther to fall.I find it fascinating when a business will turn away decades old and/or prolific customers for anachronistic 'rules' or valued habit..@officialadaware Uninstalled. Dlls still floating around and *** up my device. Never consciously chose to install in the first place.PSA for designers using Surface; Lavasoft dll killed your @Adobe product.

@lisawestt Somehow the people I follow on Twitter and Instagram don't annoy me at all, it's something about the timbre of the voices.Exceptions (as I always say): @VICE and @Landru12 ...Every time I reactivate my Facebook account I remember within five minutes why I paused it in the first place. No 'mute all' button.I recall _as an adult_ having to learn to write the @ symbol.
