    1. They forgot to change the General icon in all the apps preferences panes. It is only changed in voice over app and now in iTunes 12.

    2. The beach ball is still glossy. Where is the new one?

    3. The highlight color for the buttons in game center is in a strange pale shade of blue, why isn't it the same shade of blue as everywhere?

    not that anyone cares.. :D but i hate the calendar icon, doesn't seem to fit the overall feeling of the new icons. (but certainly not a life&death issue)...

    I was going to say Calendar icon too. I actually like the design, but the text is off center. It was ok in the beginning, but the spacing got all messed up in one of the betas and it just stayed that way. :confused:

    Don't touch that beach ball, Apple. Last thing I want is it going flat. It's been a staple of the Mac for years. :apple:

    "In OS X 10.0 and 10.1, the cursor had a two dimensional appearance"

    If you have a hard drive (you know, the old spinning ones), you should see it pretty frequently.

    I have a HDD and I never see it. I do heavy video editing, lots of photo editing, 3D animation, gaming, Flash work... I commonly run lots of apps at a time and I can't remember the last time if any of me seeing it. Stop trying to justify your SSD.

    Someone got ticked off. Yeah with Lion and above my 2011 MBP with a HDD beachballed a lot and now that I'm back on SL, it's so much better.

    Stop trying to justify your HDD because you haven't used an SSD before:rolleyes:

    The new green copy (+) cursor isn't flat. Apple just gave it a matte appearance. They should give the wait (beach ball) cursor the same treatment.

    You sound bitter. It shows up on SSDs too sometimes.

    That doesn't mean a HDD is better than any SSD (which it isn't, speed-wise). Apple doesn't equip their machines with SSDs just for the hell of it.

    Itunes traffic lights

    The itunes fullscreen / zoom button is visually stuck on the fullscreen (\) even when you press the alt/option button. When pressing alt/option it does changes the behaviour to zoom but does not actually show (+) on the green button.

    Also I don't understand why you can't close a fullscreen itunes window using the red (X) traffic light, without first leaving fullscreen.

    I filed a feedback report and Itunes has been updated since but both these issues remain. If I recall correctly it is the same in Mavericks - but I see absolutely no reason for this. All other fullscreen windows don't behave like this.

    The checkbox and radio button flickering when they are clicked on websites.

    Pale Blue Dot
    The App Store could use a redesign or at least update the toolbar to match Safari, iTunes, etc. Hopefully it will when Yosemite releases.

    Me too. The icon should resemble iOS 7 like the other apps.

    Also iBooks (middle) has a different icon for whatever reason...

    So what? A lot of things that have been around since the beginning have changed, like the safari logo. Why just keep the beach ball? It looks super out of place.

    they should fix all the extra scrolling you have to do in safari when you have lots of tabs open

    I use SSD iMacs and 15" retina Pros commonly and I struggle to tell a difference (and I'm not the only one). Your comparison between your new machine and old one is not valid due to more than the backing storage varying. That's what Ive seen a lot on these forums, "My 2009 iMac with a HDD is so much slower than my new 2013 iMac with an SSD". When I sat my iMac next to a maxed out 15" rMBP 2012 (non PCIe but still SSD) yes the boot time was around half (15 seconds vs 30 seconds) but when it came to launching apps, the gap was even smaller (opening iMovie for example was taken 30% longer on my iMac). Due to App Caching, the contents of a previously opened app can hold data to allow a much faster re-launch. With app caching (ie me opening the app then closing it before doing this), my iMac was exactly the same as the maxed out retina Pro.

    The benefit of an SSD is that it is more durable in a laptop and will be fine if shacked about. Yes, bootup's are faster, but me along with others usually restart our Macs every 3 months so that is hardly worth it (unless you commonly use bootcamp). If you heavily import video and audio then an SSD will really help out but on day to day tasks such as opening apps (both big and small) show next to no difference. I have had people ask multiple times if my iMac had a Fusion Drive because they remember HDDs being slow on their old machines.

    And how can someone determine feelings through a basic paragraph with no emotion coupled with it?

    Umm what? Apps take a couple of bounces on my HDD laptop whereas on the SSD one it's like half a bounce. I see a massive discrepancy in performance and you can't tell me my experience is invalid. HDD's are noticeably slower and that is fact.

    Let's guess, your comparing your old MBP with your new one. Nice comparison! Photoshop opens in one and a half seconds on my HDD, and guess what, I have seen much older HDD Macs open it up after 10 seconds.


    What's most important is that your happy with yours and I'm happy with mine. Agree?

    This is fair enough:p although SL seems to have bought my HDD MBP right back up.

    Yes, because Snow Leopard was the last OS that ran well on HDDs. Now you have a dozen of iCloud daemons reading and writing things to disk that it becomes slow to do other tasks.

    They have changed the General icon. This changed a few releases ago when they changed them all.
