Teeny tiny fonts and low contrast are the natural result of equipping 25-year-old developers with gigantic monitors. They should have to program on their phones. When they are 50, they will regret the choices they made, but in the meantime it's a form of age discrimination.

The world is just arriving at the point where display power consumption is proportional to how white the screen is. Low-contrast screens will, I hope, become known as power-hungry, and the developers will finally be permitted to override the industrial design people.

Personally, the use of low contrast text displays is so pervasive that I keep my display in inverse-video mode, because the alternative is staring into a bright white lightbulb.

Pitchforks and torches ready! Storm the Corporate towers! Death to designers!
