On Less Human Than Human: The Design Philosophy of Apple

@deepomega I've noticed this point on skeumorphic design too. All the matte backgrounds, vintage-object icons on the iPhone, high-gloss effects, and the ridiculous "Compass" utility on the iPhone, which makes me feel like I'm in the hull of a 19th century warship.

I don't think it's a smart design path to go down.
