Hi all,

One thing occured to me the other day, are we going towards a future where
we will have less visible widgets and controls in our applications?

What will thousands of CPU cores unlock?

We have signals that Intel isn't going to settle with 8 or 16
processor cores and then revert back to let's-add-more-MHz contest.
They are going to add 32, 64, 128, 512, 1024 and 2048 cores per CPU.
(Reference: http://tinyurl.com/4pkslx) ... expect to see 8-core 500
Mhz Intel Atom processors for ten dollars each.

We have signals that at least Apple is trying to make it easier for
developers to use those cores.

These practices should be included in your project's technical requirements.

Jonathan Boutelle, a savvier guy than I, has some good comments about
progressive enhancement/graceful degradation that are worth taking
into consideration.

Does anyone have any thoughts or feedback on what the "new" fold is?

Back in 1999, webmonkey did some work on determining the fold size on common browsers.
They took screenshots of browser chrome from the Netscape 4 browsers all the way up to IE
6, and overlayed them to see how much real estate was left. Here's the article:

They came out with a "safe recommendation" of 983x578 for 1024 screens.

Job: Interaction Designer/Information Architect at Apples To Oranges (SF Bay Area, US; Full-time & Contract)

Interaction Designer/Information Architect

You love users. You have a passion for making the user experience as easy and useful as possible. You're tired of 90% of the web that is difficult and confusing, and with just a little thought and user testing, could be so much better. You believe people just need to use things, not learn them.

Apples To Oranges, a San Francisco Bay Area (US) web consultancy firm, is looking for an Interaction Designer and Information Architect to drive the development of our online applications and website projects.
