iTunes 10 rant, ahem, I’m wondering who’s bright idea this was.
Prettier … well … sure, it streamlines the top a bit.
Compacter … yep, a wee bit more screen, a scrap more pixels, yay!
But at the cost of:
- breaking with the entire Mac OSX user interface standard
- breaking the form follows function design principle (the function being closing/minimising/resizing)
- using the counter intuitive vertical direction for these control elements
- pissing people off so much they find hacks for it to change it back to normal
This is a ridiculous idea and I think Apple should change it back. Voila rant finished.
