  2. Librem 5 Featured in iFixit Video2021/02/27
    Purism’s Librem 5 smart phone was featured in a video from the good people at iFixit. All three phones in this video have easy-to-access components that make them easy to repair or customize over the life of the product. This is exactly what we at DesignCritique: Products for People advocate for most electronic devices. We […]
  3. Lessons from a site outage2019/11/23
    There is a lesson here about keeping one’s WordPress site updated faithfully, but for lack of doing that or perhaps some other reason, I saw this Monday when I tried to publish the November episode: It was an awful week of waiting for the powers that be to unflag our domain as a vector for […]
  4. Nothing new under the sun, again2019/09/02
    Hemmings Motor News has a wonderful section every month called Antique Ads. In their August 2019 issue, this ad appeared from 1957. Out of respect for Hemmings’ copyright to their work, I won’t scan more of the article than this portion of the ad, but take a look. Looks like what is called an AV […]

  6. Visual Design History of 78RPM and 33 1/3RPM Record Sleeves2018/07/15
    My grandparents were spectacular people who gave me the best things in life: encouragement, loving memories, and cool artifacts from history. Their collection of old 78 shellac records not only sounds great, it looks great, too. Now I know why. Rudolf A. Bruil wrote a wonderfully thorough article on the visual design and packaging of […]
  7. When Manufacturers Cheap Out2018/04/04
    This well-written article breaks my heart. I’ve lived long enough to see the arc of companies that design and sell a magnificently successful product, often for many years, delighting their customers while earning a profit. At some point, management decides to “take cost out” of the product by removing the durability and other desirable features […]
  8. FT86 Speed Factory Understands Delightful Packaging2017/10/13
    Now this is how how to delight customers without hurting your profits. I ordered this inset plaque for the center console of my car–it covers up a bare space where the seat heater switches would go if my car had them–and FT86 Speed Factory not only shipped the part to me very quickly, but when […]
  9. Happy New Year for 20092008/12/31
    Hi everyone, Thanks for listening to Design Critique over the past year. 2008 was fun and I have three episodes in post-production right now for 2009. The photo is from the holiday card I sent this December to family and friends, and I thought why not share it with the listeners. I don’t know who […]
