"Yandex.Money in your application to enter uninterestingly make shtonibut"

"Yandex.Money in your application to enter uninterestingly make shtonibut"
 
Somewhere inside the Yandex.Money application, the "Suggest an idea" button is hidden. People click on it and write about their pain, offer help or ask for money for the incredible new opportunities that they have already devised, it remains only to pay them a hundred thousand.
 
Often the guys asked this button to change the design - in whole or in part - to make it better. We read these letters (I'm in the morning for coffee) and see that a dark theme is being asked more often than a custom unlock, but less often than a photo of your favorite coteyka on the main screen.
 
And one day we decided to get ...

Problems of interfaces of ground-based transitions

Problems of interfaces of ground-based transitionsWhen it comes to the drawbacks of user interfaces, complex, visually overloaded computer programs are presented, such as the ERMS or graphics editors. But even in a simpler interface, consisting of one button and several light signals, there are many problems and shortcomings. An example of such an interface is a traffic light. If you dig even deeper - then the pedestrian crossing of the road is suitable for defining the interface (the "common border" between the individual systems through which they interact, the set of tools and rules that ensure the interaction of individual systems). The problems ...

Secret Keyboard Level 3 or how to print a long dash

Secret Keyboard Level 3 or how to print a long dash  
 
Each user of the hub, at least once typing a "space-hyphen-space" here, can see how the hyphen is magically replaced with a long dash. It worked autocorrect, similar to the one that exists in the Word and other word processors.
 
typography , and to design the text correctly and immediately, without relying on the grace of the iron brain, you need to be able to enter characters from the keyboard that you can not enter. In particular, the longest dash, which is often used in the design of direct speech.
 
 
But, as we know: if you can not, but really want, then you can. For a long time sat on Windows...

Under the author's comments on the real dialogue of the chat-bot with the judge in the Turing test, as well as a comparative analysis of the behavior of modern ...

Programming with the mouse: how we escape from routine with CRM

Programming with the mouse: how we escape from routine with CRMWhat is the programming with the mouse? This is the principle of creating a user interface, which allows you to get away from writing code. Many people criticize this approach: they say that mouse programming is unworthy of a real developer, everything should be in code. But before even to draw a circle, it was necessary to know the basic syntax of the same Basic. Now any user can draw any shape in any simplest graphic editor, and this is not even called programming, since the operation is too simple. This is the development of the user interface, which makes it easier to interact with the computer...

We are promised a video in real time without friezes and jerks

We are promised a video in real time without friezes and jerks
 
Every time I launch Skype, Zoom or Hangouts, I'm looking forward to a fresh batch of jambs with video and sound. Technologies rarely disappoint me: croaking, background noises, loss of voice, video splitting into "squares", frozen frames and other joys of videoconferencing are haunted by video calls as I recall myself. Interest in many respects professional: in addition to programmable telephony for conventional phones, web pages and mobile applications, we at Voximplant ship developers video. I want Full HD, in real time, without friezes, in any browser and a conference person at 50. Interestingly...
