The design of Wired can certainly be nauseating at times.  Silver page backgrounds... the seeming lack of photos displaying "true" colors.  It feels like an extension of the "we're so hip" smugness which permeates the entire publication.  However, if you look past the design itself, there are quite often very original and interesting articles with unique viewpoints.  The magazine is still worth a read.
