  2. Good. Ever stop to look at iOS 1 next to iOS 7? ITS THE SAME THING.

    Tell me again why someone was paid six figures to "create" new interfaces?

    Ah, perhaps the Apple legacy is falling apart at long last.
  4. Seems like it should have went the other way, the cartoonish look of iOS 7 is not something I'd call an evolution.
  5. I remember reading an article not too long ago about the hierarchical bureaucracy at Apple. This seems to only support that view.
  6. "Good. Ever stop to look at iOS 1 next to iOS 7? ITS THE SAME THING."

    have you ever seen all the UI? not just the homescreen? it's more like an android rather than iOS
  7. I hope that does not mean they will "update" the look and feel of Mac OS X. I can't use iOS7, it's ugly and I can't find anything there, if they do the same to their desktop OS, it'll be a tough day for me. I bet the competitors' agents, who infiltrated Apple and bribed their way into making iOS7 a reality are working hard to get the "modern style" through to desktop as well. Competition is such a stupid thing when it comes to tools. I mean - I don't care which brand the hammer is, I just need one, because I use it in my work. Computer is just a tool to me. When two brands of hammer makers start to compete, theoretically a better hammer is produced, but in practice I end up with no hammer at all. But majority don't care because majority doesn't really work. They want entertainment, toys, thrills. It's so annoying that today toys are a bigger business than tools. Everybody is making toys - mobile phones, tablets, tons of useless fancy junk... Open source community is frighteningly often becomes a play-pretend game for nut cases who want to believe they are someone important, they just make up standards, rules and regulations, and make a religion out of if. They don't care about practical outcome of those standards and rules, 80% of which are never used, and the other 20% have to be bent and hacked to make any sense in the real world. The opposite is the Big Business, which is all about money, where product is a side-effect, and managers are like headless bowels, who have no organ with which they can decide themselves if what they do is crap or not - they rely on ROI forecasts and post-sales analysis. The world needs an enema.
