Apple "Apple today announced executive management changes that will encourage even more collaboration between the Company's world-class hardware, software and services teams. As part of these changes, Jony Ive, Bob Mansfield, Eddy Cue and Craig Federighi will add more responsibilities to their roles. Apple also announced that Scott Forstall will be leaving Apple next year and will serve as an advisor to CEO Tim Cook in the interim." The most important thing to remember is that Ive will head interface design. Ive is supposedly not a big fan of skeuomorphism, so hopefully, iOS and OS X will move away from the My First Operating System-look. Expect the current popularity of skeumorphism - including elaborate reasoning as to why it's the best choice - to magically radically decline among Apple fans.

I'm not a fan of how far Apple's taking skeumorphism, but if you're going to throw out a "My First Operating System" comment, throw it in the right place. The Win8 start screen's "designed by Crayola" style along with the incredibly dumbed down Metro apps feel like a far more appropriate place for a comment like that.

Try crayolas to draw the outline of a rectangular shape and then fill in the colour.

See? It's quite hard to copy Windows' live tiles with crayolas.
