Nielsen Norman Group cites usability studies in which business customers abandon sites that don’t list prices. Users are reluctant to engage a salesperson when they are conducting online research, especially during the early phases of that research. Instead, they will find sites that provide the pricing information they need. Businesses have several reasons for not providing pricing information online, but it may behoove them to rethink those reasons and publish their prices.
The EX¹ printer is not designed to create any 3D object like normal 3D printers. It’s been crafted and designed for one key purpose, to allow you to 3D print circuit boards, layering silver nano particles onto paper or any suitable surface to rapidly create a circuit board. In 2011, an article in Wired said that within two years 3D printers could print electronic circuits. Two years to the day, we’re announcing the EX¹, a printer that allows you to rapidly 3D print circuit boards.
Jens Lennartsson, professional photographer, wanted something that left a more indelible impression than the typical portfolio. So, he created an army of GI Jens action figures to march out into the world and get him work.
The package design is as impressive as the action figure. Inside the box is a glossy, fold out of portfolio images that showcase Jens’ work.
Unlike a traditional portfolio, this action figure won’t get lost on a busy photo editor’s desk.

Steven Hoober revisits some research and finds some interesting new things in Design for Fingers and Thumbs Instead of Touch. One of the key findings here is that it’s more difficult for users to accurately touch targets on the edge of the screen than those closer to the center of the screen.
This doesn’t mean that designers should abandon the screen edge when placing navigation. Rather, touch targets near the edge should be larger and have ample space around them to avoid interference. Hoober offers more recommendations in his article that are applicable to all designs for touch environments be they native or browser based.
