Interesting but... Brrrr! That page embodies everything that can possibly be wrong with a web design. White text on a black background, a total lack of any pictures, referring to unfamiliar products as if they were commonly known objects... (at least a link to the "zagg keyboard" would be nice). And at the end, none of that is groundbreakingly new. Just a standard Android tablet with a snap-on keyboard, flashed with a different OS. There. A long ugly page summed up in a single sentence

At Least he forgot to use that ancient 1990s technique called [BLINK]

You forgot to mention the technique requires a four-year-old tablet.

Nice try, anyway.
If the screen of my Nexus had not been demolished I might try.

If you go to the first link in the how to section it takes you to the original article which is in the format you prefer.

All in all the article was informative. Thanks!

Kind of hoping I missed the ironic intent, else your statement which shows a lot of things wrong with web designers (IMHO).

The site is quick to download, easy to read on any screen I tried it on, contains a lot of useful and relevant text, is free of pointless pictures whose only purpose is to stop the hard of thinking from clicking away.

It doesn't contain a lot of adverts, pointless javascripts, it renders quickly. It's very retro, makes me think of MacSE and 9k6 modems. It reminds me of what the internet was like before the marketing department heard of it.

I'm getting on, but I can't be the only one who preferred it when the internet was 90%+ useful information?

Of course, the best designed website is still http://mother****ingwebsite.com/

What I suppose pichlo meant and I agree with, is that a hardware tutorial with pictures will always be superior to one without pictures. And white-on-black text with a custom 1337 font: just no. Then again the target audience is probably 1337 haxx0rs, so they won't mind that much.
