The Evolution of iPad Magazine Designs
A quick tour through the evolution of different magazines' design ideas sheds some light on what's been working and what's just a waste of pixels.

Comparing The New Aggregators: Flipboard, Pulse, Zite, Float And More | paidContent
For consumers, there are now so many of these next-generation RSS readers that it can be daunting to keep them straight. But they have distinct differences. Some curate content with an algorithm, while others use a team of editors. Some have made partnerships with publishers, while some are charging ahead without them. And there are other differences too, in areas like customization, sharing and price. To see how some of the new aggregators stack up, check out our chart below.

Apple is not just eschewing the spec conversation in favor of a different conversation — it’s rendering those former conversations useless.

What these folks are ranting against, or at least gnashing their teeth over, is progress - or, more precisely, progress that goes down a path they don't approve of.

But I'm not under any illusion that progress gives a damn about what I want. While progress may be spurred by the hobbyist, it does not share the hobbyist's ethic.
