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.

The only thing I like about this thing is the attempt to deal with email attachments in a less-stupid way. At least he realizes there's a problem, even if he can't accurately identify it.

Remember, kids, SMTP is not a file transfer protocol *and never will be*, and that's a good thing. Just say NO to base64 encoded binaries.
