    Let's just remember that this is where the iPod started out: http://cdn.makezine.com/uploads/2009/02/giantipodprototype.jpg

    We're iterating hourly, and taking everyone's feedback into consideration. Keep calm and FUCK I HATE IT WHEN PEOPLE SAY THAT.

      Huh. I guess this actually makes this version Designer News 3.0.

      Older also had some really nice qualities. I think the headlines feel even more comfortable and readable than even 2.0

      1.0 was great, but I felt like Allan would just do things to be weird. This redesign is going in a solid direction. It just functions better.

      Check out my user id. I don't have much karma, but I've lurked around here since literally day one.

    I'm sure they'll iterate on this one, but the old design had much more clarity. Look how easily you can scan the headlines here.

    Best of luck to you all! I'm happy to be along for the ride.

    Would love to have the main-content be centered again.

    The DN team are smashing it. It's amazing to see hourly changes, to see feedback being listened to.

    Also, DN 1.0 was rad. Loved the headlines, the simplicity of it all.

    If there is a lesson to learn from where the iPod started out to where it was at it's best (4th gen), it was "keep it simple".

    DN will hopefully bear that in mind -- we don't need a ton of new features, we just need the features we have to be perfected.

    the menu hover bugs me because of that one pixel it's beneath the bar
