Apple Ah, skeuomorphism - my favourite punching bag. Austin Carr has spoken to former Apple designers and people within the company, and they're all confirming there's a rift within Cupertino between people who want to move away from skeuomorphism, and people who want to retain it as much as possible, and even want to expand it. Since I've long hoped for Apple to ditch this "visual masturbation", as one former Apple designer calls it, I'm happy to learn not the entire company supports skeuomorphism.

I just don't care at all about skeuomorphism. I'm fine if there's none, and I'm fine if there is (as long as it doesn't look too amateurish). The skeuomorphism used by Apple for instance doesn't bother me one bit.
I just don't understand why people are so passionate on this topic.
