I can feel myself about to win an award soon for ugliest weblog on the internet. I don’t know what it is about the look of things but I think the size of my laptop screen is bumbling my sense of what things should look like, if that makes any sense. But the way I’m thinking about design has a lot to do with my search for a new laptop, a journey that isn’t going all that well, and one that’s not all that necessary at the moment.
On a particular machine, a component is missing; on another, same thing. Why doesn’t IBM slip some Firewire into a motherboard or two on their Thinkpads? Why is the Dell machine that seems like a nice fit suffer from the same absence? Why can’t Sony add some stoutness to their keyboards?
I will be adding a reading list onto the right hand sidebar soon and a photograph I’ve been meaning to take somewhere there too for a little more frivolous color and corner balance. Ah, the scales of things, one place to the next.
