Apple Ah, skeuomorphism - my favourite punching bag. Austin Carr has spoken to former Apple designers and people within the company, and they're all confirming there's a rift within Cupertino between people who want to move away from skeuomorphism, and people who want to retain it as much as possible, and even want to expand it. Since I've long hoped for Apple to ditch this "visual masturbation", as one former Apple designer calls it, I'm happy to learn not the entire company supports skeuomorphism.

.. Steve Jobs felt on the matter? Though I suppose it matters far more how Cook, Ive, and co feel on the matter.

You are absolutely right. I should have RTFA. I guess that answers my question.
