I might be more sympathetic to the the design of the Podcast app if it wasn't so god-awful slow.
This. Are you running it on a 3GS like me ? It feels like they’re giving us treats by still supporting our phone for a fourth year (seriously, a 4th year of support for a cellphone ! which company has done this in the past ?), but for me it’s more of a reason to buy the upcoming iPhone right on release day.
About the subject : Never in a hundred years. Apple has put a main focus on design for at least the last 15 years, and it shows. Its sales have proven it over and over for so many products. It takes an insane mind to write an article to say the opposite.
I get depressed each time I open my Windows laptop at my job. Windows 7 feels so dead and dirty. By having these classic boards and grids of data, I feel completely alienated by technology. With Apple, my calendar feels real and alive, my address book feels real and alive, my notes feel real and alive, I could go on for an entire day. I’m not fond of their leather in the calendar app, but it’s a light-year away in front of what Microsoft has been able to do since their existence.
