What the Hell Happened to Apple's Attention to Detail?

By Jesus Diaz on at

Oh Apple, as much as I love you—yes Phil, you know I do love you—you can really piss me off sometimes. No, I'm not talking about iOS' serious privacy problem or the obnoxious nature of some of your Apple spokepeople.

I'm talking about your current careless attitude towards the really important things. You know, the little details that Steve used to care so much about.

Like... HOW THE HELL DID THE ABOVE HAPPEN? Are your designers really this blind? Or do they draw your interfaces using Siri?

You know I thought the off-centre number 1 on the Apple calendar was extremely annoying. I was only half joking, but I was serious too. Unfortunately, this is something that iOS 5 didn't fix, but it's ok. It's only one day. I can ignore it. I can close my eyes and secretly hope Steve Jobs would strike someone with an anti-matter ray from whichever planet he is now.

But these off centre days of the week in the iPhone's calendar? Can't you see them? How did this happen? Really, Apple. This is way too much. This is truly fucked up. This agression shall not stand, dude. This must be fixed OR ELSE.

Seriously, what's wrong with you, Scott Forstall? Yes, you. Aren't you supposed to be Steve Jobs's heir? Where's his obsessive attention to detail? Hell. Steve would have fired you in an elevator if he were alive just for this screenshot alone. He would be like: "I forgave you for fucking up with your failed iPhone 4 test program. But this? This is shit. You are fired."

I can't even begin to fathom who are the monkeys in charge of Apple's user interface design these days? Between this and their leather obsession, it seems there is a whole department working actively to destroy Steve's attention to detail legend.

Now, how long until we get Jon Ive in charge of all of Apple? Because I. Can't. Fucking. Wait. [Thanks Ignignokt!]
