Chevy recently loaned us a brand-new, wi-fi-equipped Cruze outfitted with Apple's CarPlay. Here I'll give you my CarPlay review, and I'll start with describing the UI/UX issues I usually have while driving, so you can decide if they're idiosyncratic or universal.

From Reddit's endlessly-entertaining "Mildly Interesting" subreddit, here are our favorite shots this week of things that people interact with:

Spoiler-free comment on Rogue One: I was really impressed with the UIs depicted in the movie, which I've learned were created by UK-based design firm Blind. Blind had to thread a tricky needle: Whereas the trend with sci-fi UI these days is to go visually-dense Iron-Man-style, like this… …the Rogue

A couple of weeks ago, we asked for your thoughts on Microsoft's forthcoming designer-targeted Surface Studio. (Response was generally positive, with a couple of haters.)

This morning at 6am, I cast my vote for President of the United States. Our non-American readers may wonder what the actual UX of our voting process is like. I'll tell you—it's surprisingly primitive. Here in my district in downtown Manhattan, the nearest polling place is at an elementary school

To complement the launch of SUB, their new subwoofer, stereo manufacturer Sonos commissioned Danish handmade furniture workshop, KBH Københavns Møbelsnedkeri, with the assignment. KBH came up
From 2001 to about 2010 we were spoiled with revolutionary Apple products: The iPod, the iPhone, the iPad. All were category-busters, game-changers. In the years since, nothing (in my opinion) as impactful has emerged from Cupertino. But, as their product line-up matures, it's nice to see they've still got

Design researcher Dr. Sam Waller points out an interesting conundrum: Most designers have good vision. Or at least, access to corrective measures that enable good vision. Because you can't earn a living manipulating CAD drawings if you can't see them in the first place. What this means is that most
This is hilarious, and a prime example of how Japan is able to perfectly blend old and new things to create unique experiences: They've got a virtual reality videogame called "Fear of Heights" where your sole mission is to rescue a cat that has crawled onto the edge of a
