    as anybody else noticed the mail icon changing slightly in major updates?

    i know this is a small cosmetic thing, but still interesting. when tiger came out i noticed the bird on the icon was rotated slightly to the right, and again on that leopard preview, it did seem like it was rotated a bit more! haha! is the icon designer consistantly unhappy about the position of the bird! haha!

    Wow, that's some keen observation. Kinda makes you wonder why they changed it though... I blame the marketing department. Everything's always their fault.

    thanks for the pics, makes me seem a lot less insane! haha!

    i noticed the change between panther and tiger... and when i was watching wwdc06 i thought out of curiousity to take a peek and compare with the one on my dock...

    is the bird going to end up upside down! haha!

    I wonder how big the team is that creates the Mail icons.

    Apple, now that was a freebe, next time it will cost you. I don't work for free every day.

    I bet Jobs creates the Mail icons, sketching them out first on a nice big canvas with a piece of charcoal as his only tool. :D
