Graphics, User Interfaces "We're able to produce absolutely stunning websites and mobile apps with great interaction design. Interfaces that are smooth and fun and let us understand information without even trying. But when it comes to email clients, we get a bit of a boring feeling, like using an old piece of software from 10 years ago. I think we can do better. So let's do that." Great ideas and beautiful design by Tobias van Schneider, but why he would forcefully shoehorn this clearly digital UI into Mac OS X is beyond me. It has no place there. This just screams Metro.

It's a lot about being fashionable or old-fashioned. To these people influenced by social pressure, everything has to be reinvented always. Right now, they need to pollute everything with Facebook and Twitter integration and icons. For me, email works very nicely, and the "problems" he "raises" are not problems. I'm very happy with my Gmail interface and backend. Really nothing to "fix". I don't use Facebook.
