Retweeted by Michael Burgstahler@okoroezenwa Yes, I discovered that principle early on. But since my bar was missing the "Apps" icon, I got stuck on the "phone" icon & lost@okoroezenwa Exactly. It was a self-referencing link only a few days ago.@okoroezenwa When you're in the Music store, you can (again) open a pulldown selector on "Music" to jump. Wasn't possible a few days ago.@okoroezenwa Muahahaha… just discovered that they have fixed the AppStore discovery problem. Now I can jump from within the store UI :P@okoroezenwa I take issue with size hierarchy, size of important click targets, and most major areas aren't aligned at all in both axes.@okoroezenwa Funny. There is a tutorial window? I had no idea and can't find it now :)@okoroezenwa :P No, really – the "apps" icon wasn't present in the new top bar by default after I upgraded.When marketing feels confident enough to demonstrate the new software after the devs handed it over. http://t.co/Lt65ZRrWBF@okoroezenwa The "new" main navigation on top is a good idea but sloppily executed. Get info window is still modal… after how many years?@okoroezenwa I see the effort & accept that it's a huge challenge 2 tame this tiger. But hey, it took me > 10 mins 2 find the AppStore again@okoroezenwa Lots of problems: Terrible feature discovery, opaque notifications, sloppy layout and alignments etc.Apple's iTunes developer team is where UI excellence goes to suffer and die. iTunes 12 is a textbook example of how to violate the user.

I routinely see more German reports on AAPL/MSFT/GOOG/FB events/conferences in print/TV than for IFA.@edbott I don't see these to be related. IFA isn't an event that garners public attention anymore. Very few articles in mainstream media.@edbott Germany has been plastered with them practically everywhere for about a week.
