“Gran parte de lo que se consume de forma ilegal no se habría comprado sin la piratería”, dice el estudio, que analizó la conducta de 16 mil europeos y que no cubre el impacto de las descargas no autorizadas en el comercio de CDs y otros formatos tradicionales. Según el informe, la relación es esta: un 10% más de clicks en páginas con descargas ilegales significa un 0,2% más de compras en música digital. En el caso del streaming, la relación es más directo: un 10% de aumento se traduce en un 0,7% más de ventas.

Retro Video/DOS Games For The Weekend

We thought we’d do something a bit different for the weekend, because not everybody is actually working during the weekend. And even if we do, we deserve a break from time to time. For just this occasion, we have poured across the four corners of the Web and amassed a collection of retro games to help you make the absolute most of your break time this weekend… and possibly any break time you take from this day forth.

Now you’re ready to take some time off and unplug, let’s stroll down memory lane, the gaming way. Focusing on the days of the old DOS-based games, we sourced some emulators so that you could revisit your old favorites once again without having to downgrade your machine. So flex some willpower (or kiss your weekend goodbye) and dive into the deep end of this DOS-day throwback to get your ROM on.

Game Showcase

Prince of Persia
Prince of Persia is a 2-D platformer with run and jump game play. Your hero must avoid deadly traps, solve some simple puzzles and engage in sword fights with guards. As the hero, you have an infinite number of lives, but you have to restart the level every time you die, and you must complete the game within an hour. The very fluid animation of your character is especially noteworthy. The game is still available for free downloading.

How Do You Reinvent Something as Common as the Padlock?

Talking with Master Lock’s Lea Plato, lead designer of the ingenious Speed Dial combination lock.

Introduced in 2009, Master Lock’s Speed Dial is the first “directional” combination lock. It replaces a series of numbers with a sequence of up-down and left-right movements (like a video-game cheat). We talked to Lea Plato, one of the designers who worked on the lock, about how the lock came to be and why it’s easier to use than what we’re all used to.

Co.Design: The Speed Dial lock does away with numerical combinations and replaces them with left-to-right and up-and-down movements. What inspired the change?

Lea Plato: The combination lock for lockers has been around for so long, so Master Lock is trying to push different ideas. The Speed Dial is a very different and unexpected design. That’s what attracted us to the idea.

The face of the lock—just four arrows—is clean and straightforward. How did that design come about?

We were trying to play off of simplicity. We wanted the appearance of the lock to match that simplicity. It’s really basic—up, down, left, and right—and easy to remember. So nothing too fancy.

The center button has a nice accent ring around it to show that this is what you push on to make the movements. And the arrows are really simple triangles to suggest which direction you should be moving it in. A lot of the design of the actual body of the lock is driven by the interior mechanism. But we also wanted to give it a nice round shape so it fits well in your hand and it’s easy to move that button up and down.

Another thing we focused on is how everyone could use it. A lot of the numbers are too small for people to see. If you’re visually impaired, you don’t have to see anything to be able to open this lock. Or if your dexterity isn’t very good, the lock is still easy to use. We wanted the lock to be something that everyone can use without making it look like it was designed for just one person in particular.

55 Ways to Relax After Work

Do you ever feel like a zombie after a long day at work? You feel so depleted and tired. You hardly have any energy left at all. The only thing you want to do is eat comfort food, pop open a brewski and watch television until bedtime.

We’ve all been there. Zoning out in front of the TV can be a great way to relax, but more often than not, it just makes you feel even more useless. Sitting immobile on the couch for extended periods of time can reinforce your own sense of helplessness and exhaustion, especially if it becomes your regular evening routine.

Web Design Checkmate: Using Chess For Success in Web Design

In this article, we’ll explore the relationship between the game of chess and the Web industry. We’ll learn fundamental lessons from the pawn, rook, knight, bishop, queen and king, and we’ll highlight the factors — both offline and online — that determine best practices. The game is beloved by many professionals, so it seems fitting to apply its great strategy and elegance to the digital age; certain practices might help you lead a more successful working life.


The business of building websites is one of constant change, adaptation and strategy. The way designers and developers build websites is often informed by the methods of others and their own trial and error. In light of this, we can draw a number of parallels — some philosophical, to a certain extent — between Web professionals and one of the oldest and most popular board games of all time (counting traditional and digital games). This game is chess.

56 Million Americans Are Playing Social Games [STATS]

It’s no secret that social games are one of the hottest (and potentially most lucrative) aspects of social networks today.

But it’s a mistake to think that casual, social network-based games are just for web geeks. A new study from market research firm NPD Group shows that one out of every five Americans over the age of six has played an online social game at least once. Altogether, that’s nearly 60 million Americans, adults and kids alike.

For a relatively new entrant to the gaming market, social gaming has made a huge debut.

These figures are good news for social networks, which have traditionally relied on advertising dollars to flesh out post-VC budgets. Social games can help create a new revenue stream, one that solely relies on end users opening their wallets to third-party applications. Virtual goods and currencies are a huge part of the social gaming market, and they turn a casual user experience into big business for the startups, developers and platforms that offer them.

NPD’s study shows that 10% of respondents had spent money playing social games and 11% said they planned to do so in the future.

In 2009, Internet (Internet) users bought around $2.2 billion worth of virtual goods; experts forecast that number will increase to $6 billion by 2013. And the best-performing social games can inspire repeat purchases in around 41% of users. Some stats peg North American gamers’ average expenditure per user of $74 over just four months.

Monopoly Gets an Unofficial Social Media Edition

Over the years, Monopoly, the classic Hasbro board game, has been re-imagined in a plethora of different ways — there’s even a UCLAOLOPY edition for Bruins fans — and also exists in Google Maps form. Crystal Gibson just one upped them all with her own ingenious version, the Social Media Monopoly Board game.

The game, which Gibson posted to Bite, is an elaborate version of Monopoly that includes direct and indirect references to our favorite — and not-so-favorite — social media entities. The game even comes with a complete set of Chance and Community Chest cards that play upon Technorati’s and Mashable’s themes.

In this unofficial edition of Monopoly, the traditional jail is replaced with a “Just Visiting” MySpace holding cell, and a cross-board Cyperpolice space which instructs players to, “Go to Myspace. Go Directly to Myspace. Do not pass Wi-Fi. Do not collect $200.”

The savvy social media user will recognize both popular and niche sites highlighted in spaces across the board. Facebook and Twitter are the priciest social properties, comprising the spaces generally known as Boardwalk and Park Place. YouTube, Vimeo, Metacafe, Foursquare and Gowalla also come with hefty price tags, but LinkedIn, Digg and Reddit are priced a bit more economically.

3 Apps That Will Make You Love Un-Following People on Twitter

Twitter is a great tool, but many of us suffer from clogged, crowded home pages that have far too many “quotes of the day” and far too few relevant tweets. That’s where these applications come in. They make it easy (and fun!) to stop following people on Twitter. However you want to approach it – by playing an un-follow game, by doling out payback to all those who have stopped following you, or by pruning “dead” accounts – you can clean up your Twitter homepage in no time.
ChumpDump

Have some fun while you un-follow with the iPhone and Andriod app. ChumpDump gives you Karma points for un-following people you might consider “chumps”, and also gives you points for saving those you consider worthy. It works like this: each day, ChumpDump plays the lottery with your Twitter account. It randomly selects one person and brings you a bunch of facts about their interaction with you lately. You then decide their fate: are they a chump to be dumped, or will you stick with them for a little while longer?

This game not only prunes your list, but rewards you for making it public: your “dumpees” are broadcast to your followers, who can then decide whether or not you were too harsh. Your karma keeps going up the more people you dump. If you’re looking for a way to cut back who you follow on Twitter while doing some lighthearted gaming, you should check this app out.

Interactions and strategies in Design Thinking & What is the strategy?

Who deals with the interactions of interactions in the systems, i.e. combinations of many simple interactions, knows that these can lead to surprising emergent phenomena.

Although the interaction has different meanings in different disciplines, all point to systems that are interrelated and interdependent. Every action has a consequence.

As in any situation of questioning it is necessary to find an answer to our strategy. But that is not enough!

This is not a relation of cause and effect but an interaction where the consistency of response is crucial for the mutual reinforcement of each.

The place where we play can shape the way we play to win and it’s good to think back and think about what our objectives are and how we play. We do not think the field without considering what our aspirations are or how we play to get there. We go back and refine some passes and how they master the moves…


After all things are simple!

Interaction is a kind of action that occurs when two or more objects or things have an effect one on another.

If we think a situation is often seen as cause / effect, we come easily to the concept of interaction thought otherwise. The idea of a two-way effect is essential to the concept of interaction.

In a commentary to the title, ” Where is the problem” a recent post I wrote, @ joerka , whom I thank , mentioned in twitter ” The problem is hidden in an infinite network of causes effect. It’s pragmatism of reality that comes to your rescue. Defines it. “


It is perhaps this detail of cause and effect that causes all the difference when we want to go further.

Who deals with the interactions of interactions in the systems, i.e. combinations of many simple interactions, knows that these can lead to surprising emergent phenomena.

Although the interaction has different meanings in different disciplines, all point to systems that are interrelated and interdependent. Every action has a consequence.

For most of us achieve good results in solving problems or meeting needs , means we need to increase the number of positive interactions they have at home and at work and reduce our negative interactions .

To promote these actions you must create personal rituals and team to help us interact more positively. If we make them part of our organizational process and individual habits, is more likely to happen.

When discussing the business and want to contribute with design thinking for their development, there is always an issue facing us :

According to Gary Hamel 90% of strategies fail due to poor implementation and think that design can help reduce this failure rate with the methods and design processes, such as observation, visualization of ideas and interaction prototypes.

Roger Martin says: “That’s actually a lot easier that it sounds. My preferred approach is to treat strategy– making as developing a set of answers to five interlinked questions. The questions — which cascade logically from the first to the last — are as follows:

  1. What are our broad aspirations for our organization & the concrete goals against which we can measure our progress?
  2. Across the potential field available to us, where will we choose to play and not play?
  3. In our chosen place to play, how will we choose to win against the competitors there?
  4. What capabilities are necessary to build and maintain to win in our chosen manner?
  5. What management systems are necessary to operate to build and maintain the key capabilities?” Leer más “Interactions and strategies in Design Thinking & What is the strategy?”
