It was only a matter of time. My wife and I debated after the passing of Steve Jobs how long it would take for Apple to go down the tubes. Well it didn’t take long for the classic, iconic design to start getting lame (see the new sidebar in Snow Leopard). Not to mention the restrictions the sidebar has now. I can’t choose to have my devices or hard drives displayed on the top of the sidebar (where I always had them and liked them), so now I’m stuck with the Greyscale icons at the bottom where I actually have to SCROLL down to see them!! Wow. Maybe it shouldn’t be such a big deal but it feels like all of a sudden Ford started putting doors ONLY on the right side of their new cars. And if I wanted to stay with Ford and buy a new model, I would just have to get used to getting into the right side and sliding over to the left to get behind the wheel. Whatever, right? Now I see the Apple design Gods are going towards a more ‘Flat’ Design?? You mean like Windows 8?? Well if I hadn’t seen everything…
