C’mon Apple, get with it

Why am I not surprised that the Apple Developer website got hacked and account info stolen? Their developer site has always been, to me, a horribly engineered site that made very little sense and was extremely restrictive. It seems painfully obvious the site wasn’t thought out before it was built, so I’m not at all surprised it was hacked; I’m only surprised it took this long. In all fairness though, things were starting to look up for that site, since they finally added a way to transfer an app from one company account to another. Why it took them 6 years, I don’t know.

While we’re on the subject, why do I get the sneaking suspicion that Jony Ives’s bizarre iOS 7 design is about to be the next trend in web design? If neon colors and gradients become the latest thing, maybe I’ll just call it quits, hehe. But anyway, I guess the skeumorphism thing has been overplayed as of late, especially by Apple.

Other than that, I dig the new iOS. Definitely a step in the right direction, at least.
