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.

2. No swappable battery


Heh. That's like having a car where you can't refuel on you own and you'll need to have it towed to the closest vendor gas station if you run out of gas. Closest being hundreds of miles away, if you're lucky.
No seriously, you can't easily change the battery?

3. No memory card slot

Awesome, welcome to 1995.
