I've been seeing in the news lately that Forstall wants to push this specific design feature and Ive is completely against it. I guess I don't see why it's bad to have software replicate real-world visuals. Take iCal for example. What would go in place of the stitched leather and torn page bits? A gray bar? I kinda like the idea of skeuomorphic design. It breathes life into the apps imo. That said, I honestly don't care either way. I just don't understand what the big deal is and what the alternative would be. Can someone explain to me why it's such bad design? I don't need to see the lipstick-on-a-pig quote...I've already read the article; I just fail to see why anyone is making such a fuss over it.
