Interesting thoughts on why ugly websites with strong content are great.

Same concepts are easily applicable to industrial design.

BTW Seth says it much better than the parrot linked above:

Interesting thoughts indeed, but it’s all rather short. I wish it was longer and went deeper with those ideas + examples from the real world.

Isn’t this issue what Microsoft is trying to address with Windows 10 as a “Universal” OS? too bad Designers just have eyes for Macs or they would be all over W10.

I like what I’ve seen of W10. Wish it were uglier, though.
