Taking materials into consideration.. Chinese tea cups are made out of thicker material where it doesn't conduct heat so probably design need not required any ear to it.


Most people have their PCs sitting to the right of their monitor which means the cord has to go across ones body/lap to reach the jack, often rubbing against ones chin along the way. Also, every laptop I've ever owned has had its headphone jack situated to the right, creating the same messy problem with left oriented cords. Now, of course, someone is going ...


You all missed one point. It's true that blank pages help reduce cost of pre-pressing. However, more relevant answer to such a question touches on the issue of securing the printing. That is, every industry standard printing machine is required to print special invisible to human eye codes that help identify the manufacturer, machine, cartridges, and so ...


Start with a glass table and place it under an overhead light. Use onion paper (or some other semitransparent paper) and regular pens/pencils. Put a digital camera under the table point up at the bottom of the paper. As the participant draws on the paper, their shadow may indeed be be captured by the camera, but the point of the writing tool, and any opaque ...


You might want to consider a traditional classroom solution of using a document camera. Picture an old school overhead projector, but instead of projecting the image on the wall, it transmit digitally and you can put it up on a digital screen. Once it's in digital format, you can use any screen capture software to record this. Yes, the writers hand will ...


It can have another explanation for this: Most people read books from left to right ~> the page which is needed to turn is on the right ~> when scrolling a book, the right page is easier to see ~> title of a new chapter should be on this page ~> if the previous chapter has its last page on the right too, there will need a blank page before starting a new ...


Especially in ebooks it is a nice way to let the reader know that he/she isn't missing something, there is nothing wrong, the blankness of the page really is intentional.


I didn't think it was anything to do with publishing issues. I thought it was the US Dept of Defense wanting to the distinction between a deliberate blank page and an accidental blank page very clear because an accidental blank page might mean vital information is missing.


It is very useful with single sheets being printed on both sides, where you want to be able to update the sheets. You would have pages 1+2 printed on one sheet, pages 3+4 on one sheet, and so on. If you made a change and a chapter changed from 12 to 13 pages, all the following pages would need to be reprinted as well. Instead if you want to insert a single ...


Some kinds of work are printed "as a unit"; before a group of pages is printed, the number of pages preceding it will be known. If a particular printing press is set up to print groups of 24 pages and there are 202 pages before the first page of Chapter 12, then the group containing the first page of Chapter 12 will also contain ten pages from the previous ...


You don't see it in all books. You sometimes see it--usually in books that are more academic or legal in nature. Essentially, it's nice to have in a publication where a user might expect there to be content on that page. A standardized test, or a legal contract are examples where every page needs to be accounted for--even the blank ones that are there.


Printing sheets are done with 8 or 16 pages. This arrangement is much more important in offset printing. If there is any added or deleted context, pages shall be re-organized. Extra empty pages may be added for keeping the same production line. For not confusing the end user, these empty pages carry that message instead of just being empty.

I've just come across this page looking to create a dust jacket for a book that no longer has one. The hardcover is white, and it's looking a bit dingy from fingerprints. I suppose colored covers are similarly marked but the marks are less noticeable. So rather than being a dust cover, it's a "fingerprint cover".


Nowadays mobile phones are most used interface worldwide that runs on battery. The effort to save the battery as much as possible is a challenging task for mobile manufacturers. For this purpose all mobile phones are built with LED notification lights and some use vibrations instead of fully relaying on screens. The LED notification lights only glows when a ...


There are lots of alternative interfaces Thanks to the minaturization of technologies there are a lot of alternative interfaces to the high-power LED/LCD/OLED screen in the markeet already. Voice input and input. The Amazon Echo device has a voice input/output interface capable of performing a lot of different tasks for users in a hands-free manner. ...


The Apple Watch interacts with its user via vibrations. And the user can interact with it via voice (though the screen is still active for voice input). What I find interesting about the Apple Watch's interface is how it takes advantage of multiple interaction types, including, but not exclusively, screen.


Sure. The Altair was programmed via switches, and the iPod shuffle also uses switches only. No screens in either case.
