Apple John Gruber illustrates the dangers of not having a clue about history: "The utter simplicity of the iOS home screen is Apple's innovation. It's the simplest, most obvious 'system' ever designed." Thanks for playing.

iOS icons with "those" - do they look like ballons or bubbles?

I see no contradiction.

Well... Maybe can and can't mean the same in your head.

Reading your other comments attached to this story it seems you get confused by the calendar app showing the current date while the weather app launches the weather app.

The operation of both contradict your claim of simplicity. Both show a number. Both numbers mean the content of the app, not part of the logo. One number does not change the other does. You get used to it(like I did), but people get used to SAP Legacy Workbench as well.
