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.

When the first web page was published in the early 1990's there was no big difference to the web we know today. And that's the problem.

Technology has been evolving over the past couple of years. But I still turn text articles into a f#*king great jpeg, just like pisspoor excuses for webmasters used to do back in the 90s.

You know, the first browser didn't even really support (at first?) display of images within pages ...it opened them in new windows - window per content, maybe a user of WorldWideWeb wouldn't even notice much of a difference & that is how it's supposed to be? ;p
(but seriously, WorldWideWeb was in some ways nicer, being also a graphical editor)
