What a cretin
Visual design of the new iOS 7
With Steve Jobs gone and their lead designer leaving Apple, they’ve strayed from skumorphic design and have taken a much more flat approach. Honestly, it looks nice, but the home screen looks pitifully amateur. The icons look really, really bad.
The new look is fairly sleek, I get a strong Windows Phone 8 vibe from the messaging, weather, and notification center, and a strong Holo UI Android vibe from Mail and Photos.
This whole update seems very un-apple. They seem to be taking a lot of inspiration from others with this new iOS, which isn’t a bad thing - it’s always smart to try and learn from competition - but when Apple first announced the iPhone they were doing really incredible, innovative new things. It seems like they’ve gotten stagnant.
I don’t own any Apple products, but I appreciate the things they’ve done for the industry and I’ve always admired at least their hardware design, even if I wasn’t a fan of the skumorphism. It’s unfortunate to see what it seems like they’re becoming.

Cap’n is great
You god damn idiot no why!
I’m pretty sure it’s from a game called Dear Esther! It’s a gorgeous game.
Hey, I’m the guy who took the screenshots, I run Hires Reset.
Yep! The game is Dear Esther, and it looks incredible.
You can see more shots of it here
Inever would have imagined I’d be excited for a New Final Fantasy game, but god damn
Flora really wants it huh?
Just watching this again makes me so damned excited. Sony really killed it here. Those little jabs at Microsoft are so great. This is where Sony won E3.
