Calendars are Skeuomorphic

“I don’t care about the past. It can be hidden in a separate view for the rare occasions that I want to look at past items. Yet the past is consuming the majority of the interface.” – Marco Arment

“Who wants to see 30 boxes arranged in a grid with tiny text? Who wants to see only what they need to do today? Who needs to see the past days of the week when you use a week view? I would guess that for most of you these views are mostly useless…” – Ben Brooks

Nice to know I’m not the only one frustrated with the UIs of free calendar apps.

Paying for Freedom

“I would pay for a service that never sells a single piece of my life. For a service that cares about my emotions and not ad impressions. For a service that is committed to putting me first and not the advertiser. For a service that emphasizes and never blurs the sanctity of my privacy. For a service that fosters real friendships with real friends and not the consumption of information. For a service that respects my time and never dares to distract me. For a service that humbly gets the fuck out of the way, becomes invisible and allows for humanity to prosper. For a service that isn’t a service at all, but a beautiful supplementation to life.” – Youssef Sarhan
