    I really preferred the Light-Grey case but oh well!
    Red & Blue aren't bad.

    I generally like Apple's reds, but the new ones are too garishly red, even for me.

    Went for the blue instead.

    Nope. Never. They want to make idiotic decisions, they can do it on their own time. They don’t automatically get users to go along.

    Most people who want a case for an older gen iPad probably already have one, the customer for iPad 2 [education] will gladly take a single colour of Smart Case, and it's one more way for Apple to convince people that the newer models are the way to go.

    Very nice.  Is there a recipe for this DIY?

    Are sales of the covers really that low? Seems a shame for people buying an iPad 2, I'd really want an official cover and in a colour.

    Apart from the icons that are truly some of the worst icons I've ever seen I don't mind the changes. The icons do confuse me though, it's like everyone at Apple was to scared to point out how bad they are.

     

    The other issue I think it has is there's no real wow factor to any of it. When the iPad originally came out and you saw the calendar, reminders etc and they all had individual designs and all looked good, it felt like a fun device which then appealed to a lot of people. iOS 7 just looks like any other UI. It could be a PlayStation, PC, any Smartphone or even a TV's TV guide. It has no character or anything that really defines it. It's just a simple plain UI. Not a bad UI, just nothing special.

    Air is indeed a pretty lame name. Besides, calling it what it is makes for accuracy, and that should always prevail. I had a misunderstanding, which actually heated up, when discussing Leopard. Turned out she was on Leopard, not Snow Leopard.

    Please stop responding like this. It makes you sound petty. If you have a reason to say something like this say the reason instead. It's more intelligent, mature and effective to do so.

    They’re not worth the time. They’re lying, we know they’re lying; that this is happening is all that needs time spent talking about it. The best course of action is to get rid of them entirely, but barring that.

    I prefer the poly case to the leather case. It's less costly and lighter. Too bad they are not making a light case for the Air.

    Fair enough to disagree bit what do you think defines iOS 7's UI that makes it different and I mean new things in iOS7. For instance...

     

    The original iPhone UI had its icon grid with rounded corners with an effect applied to them. The top bar of apps with its back buttons, and the different list styles against a distinctive background all made it a UI that didn't look like anything else.

     

    OSX originally had its brushed metal effect to windows and now has a more aluminium looking effect. Nothing else ever really looked like that, and was thus distinctive and memorable.

     

    Microsoft's modern UI can be defined by its tiles with square corners always in colour. Its buttons that are a circle with an icon in the middle, always in either plain white or black.

     

    The original iPad had its app backgrounds that were images with a lot of detail and all unique.

     

    What does ios 7 have on this level. I like it but I think its just feels like ios 6 with the backgrounds removed.
