One of the things I harped on over and over again when I was in charge of TUAW was the need for a re-design. I watched as smaller WIN sites got a re-designed and was assured that TUAW would get the same treatment sooner or later.
The other thing that I really tried to get, as soon as the iPhone was released, was an iPhone specific version of TUAW.
Good job to all my former TUAWers! Imagine all the other good things that'll happen now that I am gone!
