Comment on "The Wrong Way for the Right Reasons"
by Dan Price — Nov 19
How do you know?

Because the negative reaction has largely centered around the custom UI. They're are a number of developers who are upset that Apple's HCI guidelines are being ignored for the sake of eye-candy, including Apple themselves. I guess Disco was release at just the wrong time :P

I agree though that people will buy pretty things for that reason alone. Had they used standard aqua, the app might not have even registered on the radar. Any publicity is good publicity, no?

Also, about the smoke effects. I have a G4 mini and they don't work for me - so I don't even get that!
