goddamn it. my internet is fucking with me again. 3rd draft, GO.
In article "However obvious Apple’s skeuomorphic approach to UI might be, it’s an approach that is hard to argue with. The company is still considered highly innovative, and the success of its products is unprecedented--most would successfully argue that it’s by far the best we have. But aside from aesthetic reaons, it is hard to see how these designs will ever evolve beyond derivative representations. Will they just change color and increase their visual fidelity?"
tr;dl this ia another way of making Applefags pay more by introducing an "inferior" visual presentation (psuedo-real design) and then asking for more money for a style that people would prefer. well, there are always ppl who like faux-real no matter how much you persuade them. That aside, Apple will probably sue the other companies that "copies" its design lol. Justified for the ppl with stock share of Apple
