Graphics, User Interfaces "We're able to produce absolutely stunning websites and mobile apps with great interaction design. Interfaces that are smooth and fun and let us understand information without even trying. But when it comes to email clients, we get a bit of a boring feeling, like using an old piece of software from 10 years ago. I think we can do better. So let's do that." Great ideas and beautiful design by Tobias van Schneider, but why he would forcefully shoehorn this clearly digital UI into Mac OS X is beyond me. It has no place there. This just screams Metro.

So:
- label + sort by label = priority feature
- sender avatar/picture = social networks integration
- improvement = control the galaxy

Yeah, right, this is a *revolution*.

Beside the fact that he consider mail being the sole input for task management, the first two features is already available on several mail solutions.

15 years ago, I was already using BeOS file system live queries to have dynamic views of mails, sorted per priority, category, sender or whatever made sense at that time to my organization needs.

Okay, that one is kinda missing : sortable attachemnt view, with previews. Fall far from the "re-design" verb, but I guess these days every design polish is called immediately a revolution, so...
