Apple "Never mind the fact that the iPod turned the entire music industry on its head. Never mind the fact that most successful notebooks today resemble designs first popularized by Apple. Never mind the fact that the blueprint of the modern day smartphone remains the original iPhone. Never mind the fact that competitors are scrambling wildly to copy the success and design of the iPad. Forget all of these things, because when it comes to Apple, the 'what have you done for me lately?' mentality reigns supreme."

So Thom, you are one of those who must have the latest shiny, shiny UI then?

If IOS is a bit dated so what? Does it do what it is supposed to do? If not then it needs changing.

IMHO, there is far to many people riding roughshod over the 'If it ain't broker then don't fix it.'

Sure there will be changes to IOS, there always is.

Take the basic LandRover defender. The current model is the same shape and does the same job as the one first produced in 1948. you can see the design history in the current model that dates back to the first one.
Does it work? Yes it does. So why change it.

I fully expect that around Android 4.4 it will stop changing so much and then in a few years/months people will start saying 'boy does this Android look dated now'.
Will you be one of them Thom? I am sure we would all like to know?

There again, I and I am sure a good number of other OSNews readers would like to know that you think should be done to iOS to make it 'shiny shiny' again? It is all right criticising something but isn't it a bit more productive to make suggestions for change at the same time as saying it is dated?
