Graphics, User Interfaces Tobias Bjerrome Ahlin, an interface designer at Spotify, is a big believer in skeuomorphism. Whereas Apple is a strong advocate of this design concept, Microsoft is clearly moving in the exact opposite direction, while Android is in the process of moving away from skeuomorphism entirely, to a more digital experience. As a passionate hater of skeuomorphism in UIs, I found Ahlin's examples to be a bit weak.

just because someone else called a pointing device a "mouse" doesn't mean we should now be comparing them to living mice.

This is so true. Living mice do not have tails attached to the front!

It might as well be the back of computer ones... as far as they are concerned. In fact - who hasn't seen, at least once, some computer mouse with trademark snout and whiskers drawn at the user-facing end?

(and now I'm thinking about very unethical project of trying to fit computer mouse innards into stuffed not-anymore-living mouse; but hopefully me being perfectly aware of too small size of the latter will stop me from ever trying / luckily it's not "computer rat")
