I can't agree more. This is the worst crap I've ever seen. I've been coming to slashdot viewing stories for a decade, I never saw any issues with the classic design. This is just pure change for the sake of change. The sites I tend to read and stick to the most are very simple and minimal like the classic slashdot, reddit etc.. If I wanted some pretty over-designd blog I'd go over to any of the hideous Gawker sites or AOL news. I was part of the digg community when they made their huge sweeping design change, I was also part of the exodus because of it. Don't follow this path. I do know I won't be in the minority based on these comments, if slashdot forces this change, it won't be my daily news source anymore, it's too hard on the eyes. Go back to classic and leave it be, abandon this idiotic folly.

+ - Early iPad prototype appears in litigation against Samsung-> 5

Submitted by danomac
danomac (1032160) writes "The litigation against Samsung has now turned up an early prototype of the iPad, from 2002. This prototype is shown against the article against the iPad 2 and Samsung's Tab 10.1, and it dwarfs both in size and thickness. It's almost as thick as a notebook.

Samsung is saying the early design isn't even close to what the Tab 10.1 is now. It does, however, feature the same rounded corners as the current generation iPad."

+ - Don't super-size my smartphone!-> 8

Steve Max (1235710) writes "Editor Paul Ockenden wonders, "Has anyone else noticed what’s been happening to top-end smartphones recently? They’ve started to get big – really big. But do people really want that at the expense of carrying around such a huge, heavy lump of tech in their pocket?". The trend for bigger and bigger screens is clear, but is it what consumers want? Is it what you want?"

So when I'm on the train, subway, in the back of a taxi or in the passenger seat in a car I can't talk on the phone either? I believe I'd be going the same "car" speeds in all those situations. I don't think they thought this through at all. It would just piss me off more than anything.

+ - Large Auto Warehouser Switches to OS X

Submitted by good soldier svejk
good soldier svejk (571730) writes "Computerworld reports that, "Over the next 60 days, AWC (Auto Warehousing Co.) will begin systematically pulling the plug on all Windows-based PCs in its cavernous auto processing shop and power up Macs to execute virtually all of its revenue-generating operations. The move comes on the heels of a quiet wholesale replacement of Windows-based servers for data storage and Web operations, which are now running on Apple Inc.'s Xserve RAID machines."

Apparently, the company tested OS X and was impressed with the feature set and long term return on investment."
