    I just noticed that the glove hand that shows when you roll over a link (there's different variations depending on what you roll over) has changed in 10.7.3? It's a little more crooked than before. I like it.

    Didn't notice it until you mentioned it. Now I notice that it appears more like a Disney glove, such as Mickey would wear.

    Ha. That would have been gnawing at me for weeks if you hadn't said something; I never would've been able to put my finger on what was different about my screen.

    It is very cartoonish now, though.

    Here's the one in 10.7.2 for comparison… Same glove. They've just tilted the pointer finger to kind of match the angle of the standard cursor. Nice to see that fastidious attention to detail hasn't left Apple with Steve's departing.

    It can't be Mickey Mouse because it has 5 fingers.

    Well, now that I see the old one, I guess it isn't any more cartoonish that it already was before... but something about the angle makes it feel more whimsical IMHO.

    It'd be funny if some programmer pulled a Homer Simpson and leaned against his keyboard, rotating the graphics inadvertently. :D

    Upgrade. It's an upgrade; definitely a move in the artistic direction of the Mac's dogcow roots. ;)

    The mouse pointer has also been updated. First off, it's now a vector instead of a scalar one, meaning that if you scale it in Accessibility preferences, it won't get pixelated. The posterior end is also no longer rounded.

    I haven't even noticed, and I've been using the beta for some time. Good catch, personally I don't care if there's a slight change to it.

    Ooh… Clarus the Dogcow. Never knew it was called that! That'd be a nostalgic avatar if I didn't like my IK+ icon so much.

    This is why I keep coming back to macRumors. Because some of us notice and appreciate the little things like this. The gloved hand appears to have some depth to it. I can almost see the curve in the hand likes it's reaching into the screen to get at a link.

    Kinda sad that Apple only lists the arcane technical updates to explain what's new in 10.7.3 instead of also listing things like icon changes too.

    I like it.

    The one that appears when you grab on to a divider bar also seems to have changed.

    They now all look the same as their larger versions:

    yet another iOS influence... ;)

    Yeah, I noticed that other change when I rolled over a window in Mail.
