Making the Web a Friendlier Place

Department of Spanish and Portuguese, UC Berkeley

Printing out this webpage on large paper would be really well balanced, laid out design.

But when looking at it on a screen, the canvas dimensions on the vertical axis approach infinity because of the ⤴ (icam150? mannovich and design choice bauhaus etc) the the process of scrolling has become a simple haptic motions: a curling, “come here” motion that the scroll wheel & touchpad mandate, as well as the momentum emulating flicks that touchscreen devices such as the iPhone, (and to a larger extent, the Nintendo Wii) are delving into.

As the people here at Information Architects say,

Most websites are crammed with small text that is a pain to read. Why? There is no reason for squeezing so much information onto the screen. It’s just a stupid collective mistake that dates back to a time when screens were really, really small.

Really. Lean back and look. Shock! Amaze! You can read the text! Relax.

iPhone brings Sexy Back

what the internet currently looks like

Sexy Wallpapers (interestingly, not Desktop Pictures) have started appearing on the iPhone. Now since I don’t have one, I don’t really follow iPhone news, but the normal feeds that I subscribe to only pimp Sexy desktops. After all,

What’s the point of a revolutionary new communications and media device if you can’t put half naked tattooed girls on it?


But really though. When it comes down to it, the sexy girls are on the iPhone, not with the geek who was the first on the block to score one.

PS: I know I’m throwing my styrofoam cup into the water but, I can’t wait till iPhone-mania subsides on teh inter-tubes. Hey, a post is a post, right?

Apple’s Newest Product; iSuck

iPhone won’t send MMS pictures and videos

This being speculation and all, I don’t wanna jump to any conclusions. But not being able to send all the cool, hip pix/vids that you take with your iphone to other phones seems kinda weird. Apple (& ATT) would be missing a great chance to rub iPhone’s absolute coolness into “prolephone” users’ faces.

Yeah there’s an issue with MMS pics and videos being “too lq” (size/conversion issues, etc.) for this, but that shouldn’t be a problem with the almighty iphOneSX right? Who knows it may be a platform. Who knows, it could double as a BttF:2 style hover board.

Haha… I can’t believe I got baited. I hate the iPhone for its Steve-ness’ Mega-Extreme RDF energies.
And I never did plan and getting one in the first place =/

Not hating, just think its another PS3: Don’t care for it, but would feel real smug if I had one.

In other news: I’m doing the cap & gown thing on Sunday. Right? Weird.
