by Morgan Strauss In the world of UI design, graphics tend to dominate the conversation. However, when it comes to usability, the actual words on a touchscreen are just as important as the graphics – if not even more so. Why? Graphics require a certain level of interpretation when used to communicate an action, whi

Despite sounding like the name of a televangelist’s U.S. stadium tour or a series of book signings by the latest self-help guru, the Power of Four Summer Tour just may be the most important business management event that a custom integrator could attend. It’s definitely the place to be if you’re wondering how to cope w

by Michael Heiss Since the Electronic Entertainment Expo — known more popularly as E3 — wrapped up in Los Angeles, the press has had plenty of time to chew over the top level announcements.

by John Sciacca CEDIA has an interesting social-media campaign going on right now. It's a Tweet-up, old school versus new school.

After learning through the grapevine that

by John Sciacca At the Control4 dealer meeting a few weeks ago, one of the things they had the class of dealers do was tell some things that had allowed them to remain successful in this challenging economic environment. (The word “challenging” being the kinder, gentler way of expressing it; using that word in

by Morgan Strauss, President of Guifx Knowing your audience; any comedian who’s told a joke followed by an uncomfortable silence can tell you how important it is. And while you’re not going for laughs, when it comes to designing touchscreen interfaces, the concept is just as important. Different end users have di

by John Sciacca Last year about this time I went to a Sony press meeting in Beverly Hills. I remember this because, well, they put me up in the SLS, one of the swankiest hotels I’ve ever been to. A hotel that used M16’s as lamps. A hotel with bizarre, shape-shifting, animal-to-man artwork displayed on flat p

Many people hear the word “outsourced” and think of Lou Dobbs, India, lost jobs, and a bad NBC sitcom. For custom installation business owners, however, “outsourcing” to third-party technical and business specialists (mostly within the U.S.) has a much less negative connotation as firms attemp
