Those screen captures look absolutely horrific.

It wouldn't be the first time. I've switched back and forth between iOS and Android several times, so yes, that is a possibility. I'm reserving final judgement for when it ships.

Why? Keep in mind most of it will probably never see the light of day.

I'll take your word for it. It's completely counterintuitive that with the billions in profits they are making they would fall so short in terms of iOS 7s temporary appearance. A team of 4 or 5 seasoned icon designers could've made short work of this and had a rollout with a far more sophisticated iOS at WWDC.

It's a shame what he did to iOS. I hope Apple hears our complains and takes it back to the drawing board.

He should be ousted for what he has done to the looks of ios7. Yuck ! Apple, fire him and bring back Scott. ios7 UI is akin to the ugly new Windows Tile based UI.

I am not upgrading for sure unless the system has a knob to continue to use the ios6 icon design.

Has the downward spiral of Apple post Jobs started ?

You take that back! Not only does the Mini's noble character enable it to integrate elegantly into my family room, but its innate strength drives a 50' Samsung television and controls a satellite box. The woeful term 'media controller' doesn't begin to describe the intelligence and function it brings to what is otherwise a pretty but dumb glass monolith mounted on the wall. Everyone who sees it is confounded when I switch from a full-screen showing of Game of Thrones to a 37% screen of coming attractions while checking mail or the program guide. We can talk about its DVR and MP4-ripping prowess later.

 

If form follows function, the Mac Mini is a Q-ship.

The only word in this post that makes any sense is 'iOS'.

Gods, this is so depressing... I really want to like iOS 7.

 

I do too. I'm pulling for Apple. However, I just feel like they were a company that stayed ahead of the curve, for so long, and now they live on the back side of the curve. Yeah, they make lots of money, but that doesn't impress me. Hell, I'm glad they do because I was there when it got so bad we really thought Apple wouldn't survive. However, Cook is no Jobs, and he just lacks vision, IMO. He seems more interested in milking the cow than breeding it to make more cows.

There is still time to do iOS 7 right, don't get me wrong. It's a matter of assigning the right people to the problem and tweaking responsibilities.
