Does 2015 mark the end of pixel perfect design?

Up until about eight years ago consumers of digital content had a limited viewpoint into our digital world. Maybe we had a desktop computer at home, a laptop at work or, if you were feeling brave, a dumbphone to connect to the very occasional slow WAP website. Smartphones didn’t take off until 2007’s iPhone, so before then running a real website on a phone was somewhat niche. Desktop computers had similar resolution screens, typically with widths differing by only one or two hundred pixels, and so fixed width layout for websites was quite common.

The internet decides that The Interview is a perfect movie

Sometimes, a movie’s notoriety can transcend its actual content and make it a culturally significant milestone all by its lonesome. No movie this year (or maybe even this decade) has been as notorious as Seth Rogen’s The Interview, which was pulled from US movie theaters in response to threats of terrorist attacks if it were ever released. An outspoken backlash against the decision has risen up in the United States and elsewhere, which today sees itself expressed through the fan scores of movie-rating websites IMDb and Rotten Tomatoes: 22,607 IMDb users collectively rate The Interview a perfect 10, after it’d been sitting at 9.9 for the past few days, while 96 percent of 28,662 people on RT have rated it with three stars (out of five) or…

This hopefully won’t surprise you, but the planet we live on is full of beauty — especially when it’s photographed from way, way up above. And while the puny human astronauts aboard the International Space Station do an amazing job capturing it themselves, there are plenty of satellites outpacing them with their automatic imaging. If you want to take some of this beauty with you everywhere you go, someone’s already doing the work for you on Tumblr by finding and cropping the best shots to fit the aspect ratio of most new phones.


In the last few years we’ve crossed into the age of Retina displays and Quad HD smartphones — which means if you haven’t stepped up your phone wallpaper game, it’s high time you replaced that blurry…
