Typotheque: Hinting by Peter Biľak
Hinting, or screen optimising, is the process by which fonts are adjusted for maximum readability on computer monitors. I have been designing type since the early 1990s, and for as long as I can remember, type designers have been saying that hinting would soon be made obsolete by new advances in hardware and software. Now, almost 20 years later, hinting seems to be more relevant than ever.

Where Microsoft beats Apple  ¶  Personal Weblog of Joe Clark, Toronto
My esteemed, not-always-annoying colleague Stephen Coles is correct: Apple typography has been half-assed at best through the entire reign of OS X. Typography on the iPhone/iTouch and now iPad also isn’t good enough.

What the iPad is Missing (No, it’s not a Camera) | The FontFeed
Disappointing, but not surprising. Apple has made some puzzling decisions over the last few years that leave one wondering if they really care about typography as much as they did in the 1980s when the Mac launched the desktop publishing revolution.

Typographic town logos in hiragana/katakana ::: Pink Tentacle
Japanese town logos — official symbols designed to communicate the identity of each municipality — come in a vast array of shapes and colors. Many of these municipal symbols incorporate typographical elements (particularly kanji, hiragana, katakana, and Roman letters) into their designs. In most cases, the stylized characters are straightforward and easy to spot (even if you don’t read Japanese), but sometimes you have to bend your eyes to see them. The more complex logos encode the name of the town into a puzzle-like symbol that begs to be deciphered. Here are a few typographic town logos that make clever use of hiragana and katakana characters.
