Sorry that I use an iPad. Or an RSS reader. Why must you punish me? Abusing your fans isn’t usually considered to be good form, but if you feel you must then I guess I can’t stop you. And don’t even get me started on websites that make use of it. (Pointing at you FaceBook, even though I don’t use you anymore.)
Hover was never a good metaphor, and in this era of feed readers, touch interfaces, and ? super-smart mobile devices, it just isn’t viable at ALL.
