Despite Apple's internal delays, iOS 7 'will ship on time' - report - Page 2

Great post, and that's what you mean, right? I mean, a specialized pro user could know exactly what he needs from either hardware or a piece of software (from a ground-level standpoint), but think he doesn't care how it's presented until he's shown the Better from Apple.

 

The further away from that you go on the consumer scale, the less a person really knows what he wants from either hardware or software.

Just give me back the decent WiFi and battery life that the last update I used hosed and I'll be happy.

If only ... Most good and great companies ship products before their time; even wine companies.

What's "on time?" If it's ready then it's ready. If it's buggy, or not optimized, it's not ready. It could be another year for all I care about timetables, so long as they optimize it and make it faster and more efficient than the last two versions!

Yep. I think part of the reason for that, is Apple often does things first, so they have to explain the very concept to the user, necessitating real world analogues in the interface. Imitators who come along later benefit from the fact that the idea has already sunk in to the culture.

Bad skeuomorphs have zero function. Like Forstall's shifting shadows on the knobs. It was done merely to look nifty

I was referring to actual application function.

And no, adding a plus sign to a button isn't skeuomorphism. A plus sign isn't a skeuomorph. A pen icon isn't a skeumorph either, it's just an icon. And a skeuomorph can't be an icon.

Shadows on knobs, that's skeuomorphism.
