    I downloaded it last night, and I don't like it. And the more I read of the Fashionistas (Gruber, et. al.) fawning all over it, the more I think of shouting "The Emperor has no clothes!".

    I get the simplicity angle, but I think they went too far too fast. I LIKE the shiny look of text bubbles, and drop shadows, and buttons that depress when you touch them and return when you release. Guess I'm old fashioned. The new look reminds me of X Windows back in the awm days. Simple, yes. Ugly too.

    For those who don't get it, the guy on the right is Apple - Press Info - Apple Leadership - Jonathan Ive. I'd imagine that most know that Jobs used to drop acid in his earlier days.

    Prior to iOS 7 coming out, there were rumors of "Deforestation" as Scott Forstall - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (apparently ousted) supposedly liked skeuomorphism while Jony Ive supposedly didn't.

    iOS 7 Improvement? Text (SMS) Ringtone now comes through on bluetooth!!!

    I have an iPhone 5 and updated to iOS 7 beta. I'm VERY happy to report that when I receive a text message the ringtone now comes through the audio system on my Model S! I previously had to set the phone face up in the center console or keep it in my pocket to feel the vibration. Because the phone was linked to the Tesla through bluetooth, when I received a text there was no sound at all, only the display lighting up for a few seconds. I'm on Tesla Firmware 4.4. Any other developers (or hackers) notice this? It actually was a Tesla problem because the text ringtone worked through the audio system on my Audi A6 with iOS 6. Anyway, I'm a physician and it's VERY important for me to know when I receive a text.

    Interactive iOS 7 Demo/Simulator | Recombu Mobile is a cool simulator that lets you get an idea of what iOS 7 looks and feels like (sorta). You only need your browser.

    I looked at some of the demo videos and everything is just too bright. I hope they tone it down a notch or two because it does feel a bit "trippy" to me.
