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.

I think the moment you start calling people idiots is the moment where you ought to rethink your strategy.

I'm pretty sure no reward comes from not giving people room to stray from definitions just for the sake of correctness to some point in time.

Some point in the past I realized that the world isn't what I wanted it to be and it's a lost fight to make everybody use proper terms and know everything I expect them to know, e.g. SPAM, RFC822, SMTP-AUTH, TLS, etc.

By the way, RFC822 does contain a single instance of: EMAIL or e-mail. It's just mail.

What is the benefit of this discussion anyway?
