The Big Reason Why iOS8 Sucks

Dmitry explained how the latest iOS release from Apple didn’t evolve in terms of usability and design paradigms to pair the effectiveness of the bigger screen size and the way our hand works.

When I Grow Up

When I grow up
I’ll be the hero
Of my story book
I’ll start at zero
And rise and fall
And rise and fall again
My head, my heart
I’ll fly into the wind

When I grow up
The sun will greet me
And every day
I’ll meet it completely
I’ll catch each wave and swim until I’m tired
I’ll practice every move, so inspired

When I grow up I’ll be good and strong
I’ll create a world where I belong
When I grow up

When I grow up
I’ll be who I want to
I’ll take every turn
With purpose and see through
The ups and downs
The hills, the starry skies
The beautiful beginning and reprise
