Typeface personalized font

Posted in News by Conner Flynn on March 17th, 2010

We all like to stand out from time to time. We have our own personal style, etc. Now you can have Typeface personalized fonts that are based on how you look. It’s a new business concept that will analyze what your face looks like and convert it into a personal font.

So, if your font is unreadable, does that make you unattractive? If you have a beautiful font, are you beautiful? What if it’s a cat face? So many questions.

New Kindle features for the blind and vision-impaired

Posted in kindle by Conner Flynn on December 7th, 2009

kindledx-sbAmazon’s Kindle is about to take things to the next level as it will soon have features for the blind and vision impaired, thanks to an audible menu system that allows anyone to navigate easily. They are also tossing in a new super size font that is double the height and width of the current largest.

The new features should roll out by next summer. We’re always saying around here that we need more devices to help the blind, so this is great news. It will be interesting to see what they add after these features.

Kindle 2 causing eye strain?

Kindle 2 official images and price leakFor the most part, Amazon Kindle 2 owners are happy. But a small minority has a real problem with the way fonts are rendered on the new device. That’s because the newest version of the e-reader has font smoothing algorithms and sixteen levels of gray (the original had four). This makes for nicer pictures, but it causes text to blur when displaying fonts in the smallest three sizes.

If you are one of the users who are bothered by this you do have some options. You could try the Unicode Fonts Hack, which will allow you to replace the system font. Or you could wait for that rumored Kindle with a larger screen. You could also downgrade to the original device.
