Graphics, User Interfaces Last week, Culf of Mac published an article showing off some of Snow Leopard's beautiful 512x512 icons, revealing some interesting tidbits about them you could only see when the icons are fully maximised. In this article, I compare some of Snow Leopard's icons to those of Windows 7, and you'll see while both operating systems have beautiful icons, there are some key differences between the styles of these icons. Note that this article contains some large images, so if you're on dial-up, you've been warned.

I'm not sure how you can state that with any degree of certainty. And in any event, it is a very relative statement.


We have research, and we have the numbers. That is much more than what doomsayers have. For a quick intro, try e.g.
www.ted.com/talks/steven_pinker_on_the_myth_of_violence.html
and

Claiming the world is in a bad shape today implies it has ALWAYS been in a bad shape. The original statement, however implied that it has been getting worse lately. It has not. On the contrary, solid numbers say it is getting better. And that is an absolute statement.
