Our need to Upgrade is growing at an exponential rate, what with the new releases of this and new versions of that. It’s a technological incline that’s both exciting and daunting. Can we ever keep up?
It’s a double-edged sword. I went to a concert about a month back, and it struck me how the cell phone has replaced the lighter. Instead of me looking at the stage, the experience has shifted - I’m looking both at the stage, and at the tiny views provided by the cell phones of people trying to record an experience. I have to wonder - do they even look at those videos later? Was it worth missing out on the complete experience of a show in exchange for capturing a lower quality version of that same experience? Yet at the same time, I got excited looking out at the sea of cell phones clutched in the air - I felt like I was truly living in the future.
Which brings me to this, my humble blog. I’ve had the same layout for under 3 years, and I’ve been happy with the aesthetic. However, seeing my blog on the newer retina displays has been, well, disappointing. In just under 3 years, my blog has gone from sharp and clean to, well, a little blurred. The lines aren’t as sharp as I thought. The text isn’t looking so crisp after all. The pictures aren’t as large as I would like them to be.
So a re-design is in order! In the coming weeks I’ll be doing a site overhaul. I’m excited to see a fresher, cleaner, more delicious-looking Delicious Chip. And I hope you are, too.
