(Sorry -> Nice concepts by the way! The new item concept is really cool, really good condensing of information )
Oh don’t get me wrong, I wouldn’t say the word pointless for any major tech investment, even a failed product that’s actually pushing boundaries will pave the way forward for something else (Betamax, HD-DVD) – I’ve no doubt in a few years that Glass will be everywhere, it’s just for now I wonder if the pay off is worth such a lifestyle change? (Especially for non glasses wearers.)
A great example would be bluetooth earpieces, everyone knows they’re easier to use than holding a phone to your face, but they never really took off for anyone other than drivers.
That said, a car HUD sounds pretty sweet
I’m all for embracing new technology, but I’ve got to admin that Google Glass is the first major technology idea I’ve seen that I think I’ll have absolutely no use for, it really seems superfluous to even the most tech enabled persons lifestyle – for instance, obviously the functionality can be turned on/off, but if I got a Glass notification for every item comment and so forth I think I’d go crazy!
Here’s an example (at least for me) – I hate notifications, running my ticket forums I had email notifications turned on for each new ticket etc. I turned it off after the most stressful 48 hours of my life!
Anyway, I’m really excited to see where the Glass goes, but not to get one for myself, I just want to see how far it can be pushed!
The site has been updated to jQuery 1.9.1 which seems to have broken most of the JS / AJAX functions that we all make use of, I’m sure the Envato Devs are on with fixing this, just not as fast as Revaxarts
Just playing devils advocate here;
If we were to get hold of the data, wouldn’t it just be used to make sure that we all hit EXACTLY what buyers are looking for?
For instance, let’s say that the biggest search out there is ‘green corporate’, suddenly now we’re given this data, every author updates their item to have a ‘green’ and a ‘corporate’ tag & now the search for ‘green corporate’ is pointless, because most of the themes now appear.
Personally, I think that if we had this data, authors would just move tags around too much to match current search trends. For instance, if the top search was ‘metro’ or ‘flat metro’, the first thing I would do is move 3 of my items to these tags, even though they’re not 100% true, I’d want the extra exposure. Since I don’t know this data, then there’s no way of me ‘gaming’ the tag system so to speak.
Just a thought
Congratulations, I remember seeing you when you were just starting out, can’t believe you slipped under the radar didn’t know you we’re approaching Elite, Congratulations!!
Hah, yeah, it’s been a bit of a Roller Coaster ride, that’s for sure!
Thanks so much for the kind words guys, back to support work now I guess!
A HUGE thank you to all the buyers of my themes over the past couple of months, you guys & gals are great & I wouldn’t be writing this if it wasn’t for the great buyers here on ThemeForest.
Also a massive thank you for the support from all the authors around these parts as well, especially Tobias (PPandP) as well as Mike (ProgressionStudios) who have both helped in there own way to make my development & support structure a success.
Once again, thanks everyone, this will put a smile on my face for a long time
I’d be interested in the meetup, leeds is great for me
Thanks for the update meanthemes
I don’t think the item will be rejected, bit your update will if its not satisfactory.
