Bad web design: mobile edition (google)

I thought I might give an example of how NOT to redesign a web site for "mobile". Google just redesigned their News page to be "mobile friendly" within the last week, and it is horrible for the desktop. Compare the before and after images to see what I mean.


The main design principle appears to be "every news item must be accompanied by a dominantly-sized image that conveys no information and takes up so much space that you cannot fit a useful amount of headlines nor article text on one page". Notice also how they have fucked up the categories and selection in the left columns to make them all but useless. Way to go, Google!

Can you imagine what would happen if the Amazon website went "mobile friendly". That would be the end of Amazon, if the Whole Foods purchase has not killed them already.

The Housing Trap
You're being set up to spend your life paying off a debt you don't need to take on, for a house that costs far more than it should. The conspirators are all around you, smiling to lure you in, carefully choosing their words and watching your reactions as they push your buttons, anxiously waiting for the moment when you sign the papers that will trap you and guarantee their payoff. Don't be just another victim of the housing market. Use this book to defend your freedom and defeat their schemes. You can win the game, but first you have to learn how to play it.
