No, I don't want to Snooze



I get up at 6:30AM.

I set the alarm at 6:15AM because I like to wake up a bit early and enjoy some lazy time in the bed.

Come On, you know what I mean.

And when the alarm snooze again around the correct time, I am off to shower.

I could hear my alarm keep ringing.

And it keep ringing as I get dressed.

Again., I pressed “Snooze” instead of stop.

I can’t find it.

It almost feel like Apple does not want us to wake up.

Just keep snoozing~~~


There was a time that times were easier.

I can find the big line of text “Slide to stop alarm”. I swipe and I turn it off.

There must be a lot of people who accidentally hit the stop button when they have meant to snooze it.

The question is, is it the correct solution for the problem to make the Stop button “unstoppable”.

Or is it just make it slide to snooze and tap to stop.

And it is even to ask users to turn the different ways and configure the best way they want.

Too complicated?

Let’s make it all tap (after all, we just to “Tap” on our real alarm) and add a warning voice, if the snooze keep on, have a voice telling the users that it will be stopped in X minutes.

Can the phone analyze users behavior and optimize the time?

Deloitte’s July 2015 article, Making it personal - 1 in 3 consumers wants personalized product (https://www2.deloitte.com/uk/en/pages/press-releases/articles/one-in-three-consumers-wants-personalised-products.html), talked about the growing need for product customization.36% of the respondents are interested in personalized products; younger generation is more interested in personalization than the older ones.

Focus group will become less relevant, it still is, but the objective has to expand and include understanding the outliner.

As we all shift to become the outliner.

And it can be the alarm clock.

After all,

If we can’t get up.

What about the rest.

4 Techniques to Make Your UX Review Meetings Successful

As a product manager, I often need to sit down with the executive management team to get their feedback on the new designs. It can be a frustrating process and many times I found that I cannot get things down in the time I am allowed to have.
Nevertheless, not having the sign-off from management is terrible for the team, we face high risk of having to re-work (yes, we always need to re-work, but it feels better if it is an improvement), schedule get delayed etc.
Over my 200+ review meetings, i've came to understand the reasons and learnt skills on how to stir the meeting towards an efficient completion, and I want to share them with you.
There are 4 key reasons of an unsuccessful product review meeting: 
1. Audience Lack the Background Knowledge: especially when introducing a new function, executives don’t know what they are looking at, or how the end users will be using such function, you may have sent the presentation before and again in the meeting invite, it doesn’t matter;

2. T…

The Global Digital Gaming Market: Reasons, Ecosystem and Top Performers

What are digital games to us as a society. I believe the most important question to answer when looking at an industry is how the society interact and utilize it. More specifically, how different groups in the society do. Looking at several dozens of iconic speeches, videos and discussion papers, I summarized them into 6 kinds: Source of Joy: no doubt this is the most usage of a digital game, It is fun to play and makes people happy. Human beings cannot live without play, and games exist to satisfy this need. Art Form: since the first video game exhibition in Museum of Moving Image in 1989; the characterization of games as art works has been controversial.The opponent states that games has no meaning but to entertain and they do not last long enough like art does; while the supporters argue that the medium of video games is potentially post-modern art and should be viewed through the same critical lens as any other form of art.
