In a post over at Design Festival, Jason Beaird gives a crash course on Grid Theory as applied to the web. I particularly like this post because it's concise and gets the point across. In a nutshell, grids make things beautiful... just ask Mother Nature.

Reboot

I built my first web site in 1995, back when layouts were ridden with tables and images were sliced and put back together like so many puzzle pieces.

Microsoft's answer to the iPad… Courier!

It was bound to happen. The folks over at Engadet obtained exclusive photos of Microsoft's own tablet-style PC. Will it be the iPad killer that everyone thinks it will be? I say yes judging from the usage video that I saw... Looks like I'm going to hold off on getting an iPad.
