    Is it just me or is the top bar darker for the roleover buttons as well as the selected page?

    God that nav bar is hideous. Don't understand what Apple hasn't changed it yet.

    I haven't been paying attention. If so, hmm. I think they'll change it once 10.10 ships.

    I really do hope they change it. I would have thought the would have done it by now too.

    I remember looking at a webpage that had a slideshow of the history of the Apple store. I really was quite amazing on how much worse previous versions looks (even with small changes).

    On another note, do you see Macrumors redoing the UI to bring it to the new look of OS X ad iOS? The blue really reminds me of iOS6 lol

    I hope they change it soon - it does look a bit dated.

    On an unrelated note, everyone who's posted here has a Yosemite Finder icon for their avatar - couldn't quite work out who was posting what :p

    Apple really needs a team dedicated to going through every website URL and updating it with their new design language. Sometimes I'll stumble on a page that has the old thicker, heavier fonts or older versions of icons with the 3D and faux glass look. But the nav bar is really out of place. Doesn't match the rest of their new design language at all. Below are four examples of old design language still prevalent on apple.com

    Compare that to the newer design language. Here the heavy gray glossy nav bar really seems out of place.

    Are you allowed to post in this thread without the finder logo in your avatar? Luckily I have part of one.

    I guess I'm the complete combo breaker. :p

    But yeah, that glossy bar looks kinda dated now and sometimes out of place with their designs. No biggie but for a company that prides itself on the beauty of its products, you'd think they'd put more effort in to be consistent.

    What can we say? The guy is adorable. :D I can't believe someone decided to give him a nose lift though. That's just shallow.

    Redesigning a message board is nothing like updating a website. I think the mobile website will get the update first.
