Well, pwns is a little strong. But watch this video in which Tufte — who lectures and writes about information and design — leads the audience through the major design achievements and failings of the Jesusphone. Sample nitpick: the persistence of a thick, opaque bottom bar in iPhone’s web browser — if it were transparent you could use more of the screen to view content.

No new information here, you just get to absorb the way his mind works: “If the information is in chaos, don’t start throwing out information. Instead, fix the design.” Plus his voice is really soothing.
