The Mac Pro is stunning!

The Macbook Air is just right and OS X Mavericks looks really nice!

iOS 7 icons are drastically inconsistent. It’s just like this photo:

It’s all done externally now… if you want to expand beyond the base (like extra hdds) you need to hook it up via thunderbolt 2.

You say hook “it” up. What is that “it”? Another expensive NAS box, premium priced Thunderbolt (2!?) HDD dock? I can now plug 5 drives into the old Mac Pro, it’s simple and free*.

You also said “if you want to expand”. The new MP case is really small, I don’t think there is anything more than one or two Flash SSDs inside, certainly not some HDD. So in this case every Mac Pro user will want to expand.

Speaking about size, I have no idea how GPUs will be expandable. That was probably the #1 problem for old Mac Pros. That thing looks like a Power Mac G4 Cube with non-standard hardware expandability like in MBP and iMac. They said there are 2 GPUs, but I am afraid they are wired to the board. I am still just speculating (lack of info), maybe Apple will surprise us after all.

Absolutely hate those new iOS default icons. They look like something a 10 year old would throw together if I open up photoshop for him and show him only the shape and gradient tool. Love the new OSX, Love the new MBAs and love the new Mac Pro.

Yeah, I saw kids as well. I think they have overdone the whole grid business on them and underestimated the color palette. Flat white background icon coupled with overly saturated colors look really cheap (game center).

I think they should have clearly defined “how flat” are we talking about in iOS7. UI is mostly flat with shadows and transparency here and there, but app icons are sometimes flat, sometimes bad hipster gradient, sometimes 3d (camera bg, game center front). It’s a mess. But other than that (and Command Center being a pile of options) the iOS7 looks really great.

I would also like to switch Command Center gesture for multi-tasking, too bad it’s not gonna happen.

Translucent bg – is a way to confuse human brain! ;) I doubt if they really tested it with different lighting on mobile screens. Surely before developing iOS8, they will realize it!

Steve Jobs wasn’t touching such BGs for a reason! Designer curiosity overkilling design, now Steve Jobs officially dead!

Hopefuly this will mean the end of the gradient buttons, apple inspired, design in wordpress themes. Expecially those done in minimal design websites :)) yea, we have those here. Nothing special, except overpriced hardware with apple, as always.
