Agreed. I've seen Gruber mention 'text as buttons' as a problem multiple times now.One of the things/issues I have never been able to get used to is also something Gruber mention after WWDC, and it's the use of bold font for the 'safe' option in dialog boxes. It actually complicates the dialog box by trying to help you. It really needs to be non-bold, especially given that option is always segmented away from the other group of options in the dialog.
I agree and feel your pain. That's the trouble with how ambitious Apple was in the 7 months it took to produce such a complete rethinking. You'll be very happy to hear iOS 7.1 has many, many fixes coming. Most notably the animations have so far far improved in the betas.
Just in case you're wondering why I no longer respond to your posts Tallest, I have simply just blocked you. I honestly wish you well. Enjoy your life.

Honestly, the way you talk about Apple like a religion and always jump to their defence is embarrassing. Even Gruber who writes about the company for a living sometimes has discerning criticisms of them, such as his call that iOS 7 is probably one of the fews things since his death...
You do make some good points, and they're definitely areas for improvement, big time, but you do get used to iOS 7, and I much prefer the minimalism of iOS 7 over iOS 6. A lot of apps do look better. My issues with iOS 7 are more basic: fix the animations (I want to be able to paginate before the unlocking animation finishes, as we could before), app icons, and contrast in some areas. When I say app icons I don't mean Safari or Settings or even Game Center, I mean Photos,...
Sold all my remaining AAPL on the recent high. Too much politics around this stock. Still best company ever by far, though.
Yeah, Schiller said that on stage. Also, the idle power draw for the new Mac Pros is remarkable at just 43 watts.
Some of the blow.
If Dyson manufactured computers this would be what they'd make; a compliment.
