I have to admit, Microsoft is really onto something here with their Surface sequel. Looks fantastic.
The History of GUI Visual Design - How many of these OS screenshots do you remember? My walk down memory lane took me to dorm rooms, apartments, college computer lab jobs, and several post-college jobs. And Mac OS 10.0 isn’t nearly as good looking as you might remember.
A look at how CINEMA 4D and After Effects were used to create the awesome interfaces in Iron Man 2.
