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 have yet to find, even among the hardest apple fans, someone who is talking good about ical leather or the OMG-WTF "find my friends" leather app which is even worse if you can believe that.
This, and the ios6 maps failure, are the reason for the demise of the Steve Buscemi of technology.

I tend to mentally filter out all those decorations so I'm generally not bothered.

The only thing that does keep surprising me is the Find my Friends app. I'm not annoyed about how it looks, but it does seem strange.
