FAQ. What is it for? Resizr is for testing the responsive nature of your projects. There are hundreds of different tablet and smart phone screen sizes available these days and unless you work in a large studio you are unlikely to have many of these to hand. This app emulates the different screen ...

The basic starting point of Graphic Design Criticism as a Spectator Sport is "I could have done better." And of course you could! But simply having the idea is not enough. Crafting a beautiful solution is not enough. Doing a dramatic presentation is not enough. Convincing all your peers is not enough. Even if you've done all that, you still have to go through the hard work of selling it to the client. And like any business situation of any complexity whatsoever, that process may be smothered in politics, handicapped with exigencies, and beset with factors that have nothing to do with design excellence. You know, real life. Creating a beautiful design turns out to be just the first step in a long and perilous process with no guarantee of success. Or, as Christopher Simmons put it more succinctly, "Design is a process, not a product."

I do not propose here that this complex process should be an excuse or a crutch. Few things in the design world sound as sad as "the client made me do it."  Nor do I argue that the final result shouldn't be held up to scrutiny. We should be judged by what we make. But perhaps the question in these logo discussions could be more than: could I do better? Perhaps we could also ask: what was the purpose? What was the process? Whose ends were being served? How should we judge success? But we seldom look any deeper than first impressions, wallowing instead in a churning maelstrom of snap judgments. Should we be surprised when the general public jumps right in after us?

BuzzFeed is easy to bash; a fast-rising rocket ship is a visible target. But when you discuss the future of journalism, BuzzFeed always seems to show up at that intersection between crazy and smart where genius so often lies.

Some big computer users are going beyond such chips to try other new designs, since smaller transistors alone aren’t boosting computing speeds enough.

“Moore’s Law is not having the same effect on the rate of gains we are seeing,” said Gordon MacKean, a senior director of Google Inc.’s hardware platforms team.

Some makers of data-storage chips are taking more dramatic steps. Producers of chips called NAND flash memory used in smartphones and an increasing number of computers have decided to stop shrinking transistors, worried that smaller circuitry won’t store data reliably.

Instead, they plan to stack circuits in three dimensions—32 or 48 layers per chip—rather than on a flat square of silicon to keep boosting the capacity of their devices.
The 50-year-old Moore’s Law is reaching limits amid the many new steps needed to turn silicon wafers into the latest computer chips.

History isn't all that matters: Cities can change to cater to pedestrians instead of, or at least in addition to, cars.
