Apple's iOS 7 to be "black, white and flat all over" ( TechSpot 2013-05-24 )
More details emerge about Apple's "flat" UI plans for iOS 7 ( NeoWin 2013-05-24 )
It seems Apple has the equivalent of Steven Sinofsky working there, he even resembles the Windows Destroyer-in-Chief, his name is Jony Ive ...
... uncanny, right? Anyway, it is very hard to believe that Apple is dumb enough to directly copy Microsoft's retard style especially considering that is is almost universally despised. I don't know much about the internals of Apple except for other people's comments and it seems this hipster Jony Ive was a buddy of Steve Jobs and now that he died has a sort of free reign to screw things up. Not a great plan IMHO. I'll tell you what. Apple fans are loyal and the last thing you want to do is break that customer loyalty ( that would really be copying Microsoft ). But the iPhone is nothing if not consistent. Change that interface ( and even worse the Mac OSX ) and you are gonna have a real problem because the people using iPhones are not computer experts and expect things to be simple. Mark my words, a big change in the iPhone GUI will start a backlash the likes of which Apple is NOT equipped to understand. Now this is definitely still a rumor, and suspiciously like a rumor Microsoft might float to ease their own suffering, so we'll wait and see.
I neglected to mention the source article for those stories is here ...Jony Ive’s new look for iOS 7: black, white, and flat all over ( 9to5mac 2013-05-24 )
... which is a marvelous parallel to the long-running conflict in the Windows universe since several over-paid under-achievers named Steven Sinofsky, Jensen Harris, Sam Moreau and Julie Larson Green took it upon themselves to move the GUI forward to 1980's level visuals.
For example, take a gander at some MacTards taking shots at the commenters that do not want a repeat of the Windows 8
puke-worthy disaster to befall their beloved iOS ...
I don't get it. Are you a troll or what? You haven't even seen it.
I'm gonna paint a person, but paint their face green and pink, use some very straight lines, and some very curvy ones. It's hardly going to look like a person. I'm going to express how I see someone, rather than how they actually look. Does that sound absolutely awful to you, too? Because I just described Picasso's work.
Holy crap! The same smug arrogance that Windows MetroTards routinely display even utilizing their patented strawman arguments with crazy analogies! Another ...
Amazing how stupid some of you people are! It's not monochrome! Re-read the article! Johnny Ives is the #2 reason for Apple's success behind Steve Jobs. How about we cut him some slack and wait to see what it looks like before throwing him under the bus? Stop being knee-jerk A-holes!
Typical! When you run out of facts to argue ( taste is subjective, not right or wrong, you can't prove someone wrong for enjoying nice graphics over flat garbage ) use logic fallacies like "ad hominem" or "appeal to authority". "Johnny Ives is the #2 reason for Apple's success behind Steve Jobs
", well I don't know enough about Apple to judge that statement but it sure sounds like a pant load of poop to me. Hey iOS users, the 'Tard just called you stupid. You gonna take that? Continuing on, another ...
Regardless what it turns out to be some people will reject it before giving it a good look. Change is painful for some.
Oh no you didn't!
Now the arguments are direct clones of our MetroTards! "Change is painful
!". If you MacTards and our MetroTards are so longing for change, why don't you change to Android?
Ironically, a radical change in iOS will do just that.
It will be the ultimate gift to Google, Samsung and the Android platform. Yet another ...
Bring on the cry babies... I can see from some of the early comments that people are already passing judgement and they haven't seen jack sh*t yet. I say change is good, the current IOs is dated, stale, etc. I am looking forward to the changes ahead.
Another Dot Matrix clone! Can we call you Dot MacTrix? Hey Mac dudes, the 'Tards are telling you to shut up and wait for the release, then you may complain about it when it is too late! We've been through this over here in WindowsLand and we now know not to question authority. NOT.
I wonder if Jony Ive has himself a "Destroying iOS" blog like Sinofsky had where he chooses to answer a few softball questions while disregarding the overwhelming majority that ridicule the project.
Overall the blog comments run approximately 60-40 or 70-30 against
the Sinofsky-like redesign, I only picked the first four "ChangeTard" comments. Here's some against the changes, some of many ...
Is he insane ?
Monochrome ? Really ?
Black white and flat ?? What ? Does he want to turn Apple devices into ancient Palm monochrome ones ?
Fire Tim Cook NOW!
Jony Ive is going to ruin iOS and make customers angry like never before with this nonsense!
I hear ya brother. We often have used the word "insane" to describe Sinofsky and his team of MetroTards.
It's great that iOS allows so much customization in it's design. Too bad its one person\group making that design choice for everyone else.
Ditto that. And we Windows users have always had the most customization capabilities of all GUIs yet still the Microsoft brain(less)trust forced changes upon Windows users with NO options to change it whatsoever. Welcome to the party pal!
He is designing a user interface for human robots. For the idiots that get "confused" by one application having a different look and feel than another.
What a tragedy. Everything I read about losing the shine, gloss, and drop shadows is horrifying to say the least.
I can see it now: Apple will give developers three months to update their apps to the "flat" look, or be rejected from the store.
You're exactly right ( except for the Store part I think ). It is horrifying. The defining characteristic of iOS is exactly the gloss and shine and elegant appearance at least for the home screen. And what's the point of high density retina displays if they're just gonna show low-end amateur graphics? Ask your 'Tards that question.
These changes sound terrible to me. People who love flat UI can already buy the Windows phone. I love the shredding animation in Passbook app. I love the shiny buttons. Jony Ive is going to destroy Steve Jobs' baby. I hope Samsung hires Forstall and brings back the skeuomorphism and animations -- into the Galaxy 5.
Sorry, your opinion does not count because the MacMetroTards said so. Jony Ive is a legend you know! He is responsible for the success of Apple! Trust him. Stop resisting change you Luddite.
Anyway, we're gonna need some catchy names for these Mac MetroTards (MacroTard?). Anyone?EDIT:
