I am appalled at Apple and what they’ve done with iTunes 9. Sure, they’ve included some important functionality and all, like app management and a new interface for the iTunes store, but did they really need to make it so fricken ugly? I mean, just take a look at the thing:
Fucked up gradients and blindingly white backgrounds? Why, Apple, why?!
Oh, and Mindless Self Indulgence kicks ass; check ‘em out.
In other news, Apple updated their line of iPods. The Shuffle now comes in more colors and still kinda sucks, the Classic got a space bump to 160 GBs for the same price, the Nano got a sparkly new camera, and the iPod touch got a processor bump and still has no camera (and here’s some theories on why).
All in all, not too exciting for an Apple event. Steve’s back on stage with the liver of a 20-something-year-old who got hit by a car. That’s interesting, right?
Update: Apple’s released footage of the keynote which is available for download here.
Update 2: You can make iTunes 9 less ugly with this unofficial patch (OS X only, for now).
