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.

Now we're at it, why not redesign the alphabet?

An excellent idea! Why not use arbitrary Unicode implementations to remove all this distracting letters from the e-mail? I mean, nobody wants to read that! So let's just put animated pictures in there, throw some multimedia (annoying sounds) at it, integrate it with Facebook and finally put it somewhere into the cloud. As tidux wrote: "Words have meanings." -- that should be changed in favour of something... more easy and entertaining! :-)
