Yeah the new icons really look awful But keep in mind that iOS7 is currently in beta, so they’ll probably take another look at those icons and the overall design. Don’t know to what extend, but reading everyone’s reactions I’m assuming, and hoping, they’ll take it back to the drawing board.
As for the new Mac Pro, I kinda like it! And why are people prejudging the Mac Pro about the fact that the design looks like a recycle bin..? (@FinalDestiny, some pics do look delicious though ) They’re mainly using this design because of the air flow or something and that it requires only 1 fan to cool the whole tower. You’ll probably pay a few pennies for this machine, but it’s going to be really powerful, so who really cares that it looks a little strange.
I think the mac pro looks awesome, with some beefy specs. Plus a cracking site into on their page. I may get ine of these, how the heck do they get all that in a 9 inch by 6 inch tube
MSFX saidI’m not really buying that rumour, but at least it gives us a solid reason Apple might feel like redesigning the icons before the release
apparently the marketing team did the colour scheme and icons
+1 Most probably it is not a result of marketing team’s fail but the designers themselves (when it comes to color). The keynote presentation points they are following a discipline for color and construction, so that could be big failure as a concept itself. The disappointing part is the design lacks very accessibility – we can ignore aesthetics but not the basic visibility.
They managed to make the hardware to support retina level resolution but doesn’t using it to help our eyes.
