This is a run-through of a talk I originally gave at Standards Next a few weeks ago. It's not as smooth as that talk as I'm a few weeks out of practice and pretty tired right now; but hopefully it's useful to you (it's also 10min longer than the real talk was, sorry!).
NOTE: This talk was based on AI 1.4, the latest version is 1.5 which includes enhanced support for Retina devices.
