Why sales people should never design websites

Why sales people should never design websites

Every day, digital artists in corporate environments are in a battle, nay, a war with sales people. Designers always want to make something pretty while sales people just want something up on the web as quick as possible with as many keywords as possible. What do you think would happen to a company website if the design was left to a sales person? Well, if you dare to click the link below, you will see one of the worst web designs from an “Internet Services Company” I have seen in years.  I really hope this is some type of joke, but after watching the “innovative” video walk-out and hearing all those buzz words coming out that person mouth, it sounded like he was serious.

You’ve been warned.

A war in a vaguely European setting has left Kanata Sorami, a young girl, orphaned. She is found alone and crying in a gutted building by a female bugler. Years later she has grown up somewhat, although still quite young, and has enlisted in the military to become a bugler like the woman who saved her. Her assignment is a town called Seize, known to the military as the Time Telling Fortress. It is here that the first two episodes, and presumably the majority of the series, will take place.

On her way through the town, Kanata is distracted by a local tradition in which people are dousing each other with an orange colored water. She is met by a woman named Rio Kazumiya, who turns out to be her superior, and scolded for her lax ways. While cleaning up, Rio shows her a bell charm her father left her. In a humorously prompt manner, an owl swoops in and steals the necklace from Kanata’s hand. Rio sucks up her disappointment and instructs Kanata get to their base.

While Rio goes off the participate in her special role in the town’s ceremony, Kanata is drawn to the bell’s sound and down into the ravine near the town. While she manager to secure the bell, she falls into the water below. Under the water is a huge golden skeleton of some headless bird, possibly relating to the town’s history, but never divulged in the first two episodes. Rio hears Kanata bugling for assistance and eventually rescues her.

Now united, Kanata is introduced to the other members of their platoon. Filicia Heideman is the group’s leader followed by Rio as the sergeant major. Noel Kannagi is the platoon’s pilot and mechanic, yet has not been able to make the needed repairs to their defunct mecha-tank. Kureha Suminoya is a stubborn private and the platoons tank gunner. Kureha seems to be out to hate Kanata, but warms to her during a “mission” to seek out a ghost in episode two.

This series suffers greatly from the glaring comparison to K-ON in the makeup of the group and even in the character design themselves. Pushing this aside, the story is floating on a rich world yet has taking very little active interest in pursuing the greater story thus far. On the plus side, the scenery is beautiful.

How Tosh.0 reviews tech gadgets

Posted by: |

When the iPad debuted it wasn’t exactly universally praised. Many people derided it as a giant iPod touch, and the name. I mean apple has made few mistakes since the first gen iPod’s but come on. Don’t they do testing to see if the name is going to fly?How could they not see it coming? So with all the backlash it was only a matter of time till someone took their anger at the iPad itself. And Daniel Tosh is that man.  Now, personally I would have gone with a baseball bat bat but to each his own I guess.

Naozumi Tsuchida is trying to get his post-school life together. He has accepted the first male teaching position offered at a local kindergarten called Hanamaru. Working in the classroom next door is a lovely yet aloof young woman named Nanako Yamamoto. Besides them there are two other teachers named Kawashiro and Kusano who run separate classes at the school. The principle is rather forgiving of his shortcomings early on, as she sees his potential. If only life were that easy…

On Naozumi’s way to work the first day, running late as it was, he noticed a young girl waiting out by the street. His role as teaching coming out, she stopped and asked her what she was doing and where her parents were. Her name was Anzu and she was waiting for her mother. She then erroneously analyzed the situation based on what she saw on TV and decided that he was hitting on her! To make matters worse, her mother, Sakura, encouraged her behavior and played along.

Upon reaching the school, Naozumi found out that Anzu was in his class. She proudly announced that he hit on her and she was going to marry him. This being said in front of the entire school, parents and staff turned Naozumi into a bumbling fool attempting to explain. He then, as the series progresses, attempts to win over Nanako but finds no luck.

Anzu makes friends with two other girls; the spacey yet genius Hiiragi and the emotional and fragile Koume. The series seems like it will focus on this core group of girls and Anzu’s interactions with an ever more flabbergasted Naozumi. It is revealed that Anzu’s mother, Sakura, was in high school with Naozumi but left after becoming pregnant with Anzu and leaving for the USA with the father (who was an art teacher at the high school).

This series is cute, but barely made the B grade as there are only two directions I feel the series can go, and both have the potential to be a letdown. The situation with Anzu’s parents was a bit creepy as well.

Overall Hook Rating: B-

Check out episode one after the break…

G-Point Mouse is slim, sexy, kinda perverted

When looking for a mouse, some people look for something sleek like the Apple Magic Mouse.  Others look for something ergonomic. Then there are people that look for something they can just play with all day. Introducing the G-Point.

Ya. I know. I was kind of speechless too. *shakes head*. I wonder what people will come up with next. Wireless vibrators that shake at the beat of a song? Oh wait…
