"Just to chime in, I agree with Jon and Ola that an HTML5 option might be a good solution for a lot of restaurants. Restaurants should have a mobile-friendly version of their website anyway (we just did a survey that found that nearly 40% of…"

"Good point. Since I am only talking about a standard iPhone icon, I suppose the only ill feeling one might get is that it is taking up space on your screen. In which case you can shuffle it off to another screen, and since the release of iOS 4 you…"

Tony Giuliani replied to Ryan Gold's discussion Does your restaurant have an iPhone App?
"Whether it's annoying or not will depend on the size of the icon and frequency that it is displayed. If had to see that every day, multiple times a day, I personaly would be annoyed, If I'm annoyed by that, it will transfer that emotion to…"

"Andrew is correct. I simply meant that the person who has the app on their phone will very often see the icon as a reminder, which might prompt them to consider your restaurant more often."

"Okay, thanks for saying that! I see it all too often and I just cringe when I see people doing that. Super annoying! lol"

"I think what he meant was that they would see the app icon, not necessarily constant updates (which would be incredibly annoying, as you pointed out)"

Arlina Allen replied to Ryan Gold's discussion Does your restaurant have an iPhone App?
"Hi Ryan, I had a little red flag when I read this "they see your name on their phone perhaps a zillion times a day!". My experience has been that if you post more than a few times per day, people get irritaed and they'll tune you…"

TED TALKS VIDEO

TED: Hamish Jolly: A shark-deterrent wetsuit (and it's not what you think) - Hamish Jolly (2013)

Hamish Jolly, an ocean swimmer in Australia, wanted a wetsuit that would deter a curious shark from mistaking him for a potential source of nourishment. (Which, statistically, is rare, but certainly a fate worth avoiding.) Working with a team of scientists, he and his friends came up with a fresh approach — not a shark cage, not a suit of chain-mail, but a sleek suit that taps our growing understanding of shark vision.

TED: Michel Laberge: How synchronized hammer strikes could generate nuclear fusion - Michel Laberge (2014)

Our energy future depends on nuclear fusion, says Michel Laberge. The plasma physicist runs a small company with a big idea for a new type of nuclear reactor that could produce clean, cheap energy. His secret recipe? High speeds, scorching temperatures and crushing pressure. In this hopeful talk, he explains how nuclear fusion might be just around the corner.

TED: Sarah Lewis: Embrace the near win - Sarah Lewis (2014)

At her first museum job, art historian Sarah Lewis noticed something important about an artist she was studying: Not every artwork was a total masterpiece. She asks us to consider the role of the almost-failure, the near win, in our own lives. In our pursuit of success and mastery, is it actually our near wins that push us forward?

TED: Matthew Carter: My life in typefaces - Matthew Carter (2014)

Pick up a book, magazine or screen, and more than likely you'll come across some typography designed by Matthew Carter. In this charming talk, the man behind typefaces such as Verdana, Georgia and Bell Centennial (designed just for phone books -- remember them?), takes us on a spin through a career focused on the very last pixel of each letter of a font.
