“Music downloads have outpaced CD sales” Steve Jobs announced last night so he and Apple decided to whip the CD out of the iTunes icon for their tenth version of the software. Makes sense right? But where Apple usually has everyone dribbling with lust over the aesthetics of their designs, this iTunes icon seems a bit ugly.
Famous for having err iconic icons, this seems to be a dud note.
Maybe I’m being a bit nostalgic here but its navy and turquoise is just less cheerful and shiny than the old one. It does look more like an app, which I guess makes sense. That’s what Apple does these days.
What do you think? Restrained and retro or a bit uggs?
