Graphics, User Interfaces Ever since I bought my HTC HD7 way back in October 2010, I have been hooked on Windows Phone. Without even being able to test-drive the new operating system (The Netherlands didn't get Windows Phone 7 until a year later), I imported the HD7 from the US - the minimalist, stark, clean, flat, and textual interface spoke to me, and I just knew I would like it. And like it, I did.

Skeuomorphism Must Die

I listen to loads of podcasts. In fact it's pretty much 90% of what I do with my iPhone.

For those who don't have an iPhone and/or missed the image in this article. Check out the width of the seek slider control on the iPhone:

It is 1px wide. It does allow a bit of latitude either side of it, but not much. It's borderline unusable.

Apple seriously needs to put a bullet in this skeuomorphism crap.
