    By coincidence, I just stumbled upon the (re-designed) Yahoo Weather website. Umm, color me surprised, but seems like Yahoo is jumping on Apple's "flat" iOS7-themed bandwagon. Not that it's a bad thing. Or is it? I dunno. :D

    Curiously, the rest of Yahoo's other web portals are un-flat, looking like the web design dates back to 2004.

    That's more Microsoft's style of flat than Apple's. And really, it's not them aping Apple so much as bringing their entire platform in line with their mobile apps, which have had this styling for a good while now.

    Ah, then good on them. Looking at their Weather website, it's actually a good-looking "flat" website. I guess I'd say that it's "flat" done right. It looks good and clean. It's simple. It's functional.

    Hopefully Apple can take some cues from them and refine iOS7 towards this direction.

    I like the 'look' but the coding sucks. Why does everything stick to the left side of my hi-res monitor. It should be centered.

    Add a div and they'd be good to go!
