I talk with Monotyoe's Steve Matteson about what wearables mean for typeface designers. Hint: It's not as easy as simply shrinking down the font size.
CNET spoke with Monotype's creative type director, Steve Matteson, to discuss the challenges of designing fonts for ultra-small user interfaces, including wearables.

Here's CNET's review of the unlocked Google Nexus 5 (written by yours truly) in case you missed it. It features Android 4.4 KitKat, a Snapdragon 800 processor, and LTE. What do you think, are you guys going to get it?

I review the ginormous, 5.5-inch LG Optimus G Pro. It has a quad-core Snapdragon 600 CPU, a 13-MP camera, and Android Jelly Bean. But does it have what it takes to take on the Note 2?

T-minus 10 mins. to see what #Apple has up it's sleeve. Unil then, watch Brian Tong, Donald Bell, and Molly Wood (it's her last one for CNET!) chat it up on our live blog: http://live.cnet.com/Event/CNETs_Apple_Oct_22_Event_Live_Blog

Wherein I spend my day reviewing this glorious game and cram as many Erasure references as I can in one single caption. Sometimes work is hard.
