@newonnetflix Did you ever find out why it was dropped in the first place?
I feel like I’ve lost the ability to colour outside the lines. Hope I don’t give my kids the same affliction.
@jsnell Yes, I think that helps a lot. You’re right that web advertising has ruined digital ads for many users. More subtlety is needed.
I think it’s unfair for @marcoarment to get dumped on for pointing out the bad user experience of the ads in most digital publications.
@marcoarment I think what you’re noticing is that on a screen, a full page ad is way more intrusive. Full-page web ads are unbearable.
@jsnell Marco’s got a point: the context shift to reading on a screen makes ads feel more intrusive. Full-page web ads are unbearable.

@JimmySlims DUDE, that’s AMAZING! Good luck!
@JimmySlims No, but I notice people spend a lot less time in my office than they used to. For meetings we go to a meeting room.

@danfrakes Ahh, I see - that Message List Font setting only seems to apply to Classic layout. Very strange.
@danfrakes Isn’t the fix to change the sidebar icon size under General in Preferences? Downside is it also changes the sidebar in Finder.

@sharpener Agreed. I mean, disagreed. Right. :-)
@sharpener Right, I just don’t agree. To me it’s just another computing device, and is geared towards whatever the user prefers.
@sharpener I prefer to write on a real keyboard using my big screen, and full power of my MB, but the iPad can work too.
@sharpener It all depends on what your work is, and how good (or not) the software tools are. iPad writing=good. Design/dev, not so much.
@sharpener No doubt. But I can take an iPad with me on a day trip, and get some real work done. (email, writing, etc). Don’t need MB.
