Interface: 45. Switch Anxiety

http://interface.fm/45

After roughly 6 years of flings with various Android devices, Chase has found true love and happiness with an iPhone 6S. Moving from Android to iOS can’t be without pain points, though, right? Changing apps, different content providers, a keyboard that is hard to punctuate… how will he adjust? And what’s the cost of switching platforms in the current state of technology?

Interface: 44. The Blue Light Generation

When we were kids, we rode bikes and played outside. Today’s kids are buried in their devices, and experiencing the world through a tiny glass window. But what happens next? How does it change the way they interact as they grow up? What dependencies does it form?

We’ve created a playlist of songs we (the algorithm) think you’ll love, based on a mysterious set of features. Here’s a preview:

  1. Call Me Maybe
  2. The Hand That Feeds
  3. In Da Club
  4. Back in Black
  5. Mrs. Robinson

Are you excited? …No? …but the algorithm. How could it be wrong?

Chase has been keeping his eye out for the latest Toyz2Lyfe game (inspired by the Dreamworks Pictures animated Toy Story rip-off), and he’s found some great online tools to track the best deals. Unfortunately, he’s been sucked into the consumerist trap of online deal sites, and now has a garage packed wall-to-wall with HDMI cables and women’s pants. The internet is weird.

Interface: 41. Do People Really Not Know Where They’re Going?

Why is it that every car radio, CD player, or fancy infotainment system sucks? Maybe it’s a disconnect with customers, maybe it’s just a lack of care… or maybe it’s because there is no incentive to make it better when the competition all sucks, too. Either way, we don’t like it. When the device in our pocket can do almost anything, why can’t it be the center of our automotive life?
