Hey! Dint ya see the :) ?
Did I miss the warm fuzzies? (nudge nudge wink wink!)
Even if one breaks the width into columns so individual lines are a readable width, I just can't see the point in designing a site that intentionally makes using the site more difficult for my visitors.
I do like the concept of column presentations for wide screen, but other than experimental work, I've never implemented since there are no exact and solid measures for full screen users. We'd like to think that news-column would work, but unless we take over the screen we have no way of knowing our intended audience is of like mind. As lucy24 points out the new devices in vogue (tables, phones) are heading back to retro res measures. Of course we can detect the device and serve content appropriate, but that makes more work.
