  • Revisiting an old post: Harmless Future optimizations for xillions

    Posted on May 10th, 2013 Cahit Crcioglu No comments

    Once upon a time, I have written a blog post related to optimizations for X numbers of users: http://cahit.hayalet.net/blog/543/harmless-future-optimizations-for-xillions (opens in new window)

    I have found another good example to this today:

    wp_ss_20130510_0002

    Could you catch it?

    Live Tile of Mail application in my Windows Phone 8 device shows 478, the number of new/unread emails.

    The Question: Is it O.K.?

    For me, not.

    What would a possible response be?

    Dudetta! Read some mails and it’ll drop to 2 digits or just touch the tile for god sake!

    This answer is soooo COOL! O-yeah!

    The Question: Why not fix it?

    Possible Answer: Fix what?

    This may be an understandable problem for some and i respect them, however i do it for none of my projects. If i wait a little longer it will hit 4 digits. I just can’t answer users and customers with “Read some of them, just touch it and it’ll clear”. According to “me”, it should have been optimized for ironically large numbers of emails. I am almost sure that it wouldn’t take much time to change the tile design according to the number of digits of unread emails.

    I don’t think that they ever tested the tile for 3 digits, because I am sure that they would find a way to fix it (like decreasing font-size etc..)

    Supporting my old post, i still think that non-time consuming optimizations should be considered even at the first releases.
