I love the new Mac Lion operating system. The thing that I can’t figure out is why Apple decided to make Address Book and iCal have these old funky looking UIs to them.
Take a look at the new Mac mail and it’s all nice, gray, minimalistic icons, clean. Same with Safari, iTunes and the App Store itself. In fact most of these Apps are based on the UI component set that Apple gives out with it’s Xcode developer set. Now take a look at the Address Book or iCal. Why make them look like out dated versions of analog products. Are we going to get an iTunes redesign that looks like a radio? or a Quicktime version that looks like a fake television. All the people that would be comforted by these design throw backs won’t be using these applications anyway.
