@johngordon Lots of people note that for all the skeuomorphic problems (often more due to Jobs honestly) Forstall tended to worry about a lot things like affordances much more. (Although MacOS graybeards would say it still was’t enough)
@johngordon In particular discoverability and affordances have been a low priority for Alan Dye in designing iOS7. I think the new iTunes shows that to be controversial at best. (Lots of reviews saying they love the service and hate the UI)
@johngordon However a lot of bugs that annoyed me the first day are gone. So they must have been somehow indirectly related to the back end. Been really solid. Still lots of decisions I don’t like, but much better than say Maps or Photos at their start.
@johngordon Not as many critical bugs. More a lot of small annoying bugs. A lot appeared have been related to scaling up the service the first few days. I heard Apple actually crashed AWS several times the first day taking out a lot of other web sites.
@johngordon Give China credit for cleverly avoiding a lot of problems. Can’t last forever - especially now that other southeast asian countries that are poorer than China can start to do what China did. They’re about due for military hubris overreach too.
