    Why is Address Book's icon now black? Does it now only hold the details of ex-girlfriends, with a 5 star rating system (a la iTunes)? :p

    I'm missing something here. Mail looks exactly like that already. Here's a snapshot, could someone please tell me the difference?

    I just realized I installed UNO. But I seem to remember it looked like that before anyway.

    I say fake...

    why? Because it's pretty darn apparent that Mail is just skinned. And other various things have been edited.

    The difference is that in the screenshot claiming to be leopard mail has a darker metal (iTunes) appearane and less radius on the rounded corners..

    not a big change I know and personally I think it looks better as it is

    its all about the color, and look at the color comparison between button and background, its totally weird to have buttons with slightly lighter color with same hue.

    The scary part could be that Apple decided to unify the GUI in brushed metal. :eek:

    I say fake, because Mail.app doesn't show anything about Notes. In the Apple preview for Mail, Notes is in the toolbar as well as the sidebar.

    I say fake, since the iTunes logo is the green one and not the newer blue one, and I don't see Apple changing the color again. At least not for a while.

    Also, not sure if this means anything, but that's a Core Duo, not a Core 2 Duo.

    Look at the Teaser on Apples site, its green on there.

    As for Core 2 Duo, it wasnt even announced and the Teams (Goes for iTunes and OS Devolvement as well) have very strict rules to stick to. Not allowing to share Beta's ect
