Brushed Metal har det inte lÀtt

Publicerad 2006-01-14 12:10

iLife '06 sĂ€tter ytterligare nĂ„gra spikar i kistan för vĂ„r gamle vĂ€n pĂ„ dekis. Brushed Metal som en gĂ„ng i tiden var den hetaste stjĂ€rnan i GUI–vĂ€rlden har Ă„kt pĂ„ ytterligare bakslag. Nu har hela iLife–familjen (förutom rebellen GarageBand) fĂ„tt den look som debuterade i och med iTunes 5.

Den hÀr gÄngen hittar vi Brushed Metal, sliten och irriterad utanför Safaris hus. Brushed försöker fÄ hjÀlp till en comeback genom en av de fÄ tungviktare som fortfarande smakar metall. Jon Gruber var pÄ plats och lyssnade pÄ deras konversation. HÀr följer ett litet utdrag frÄn den.

Brushed Metal: We could do it, though. You and me. Remember when your public beta hit the street? Everyone was like, Oh man, brushed metal in a document-based app? That’s against the interface guidelines! You can’t do that! Waaa!” Good times, man, good times.

Safari: Yeah.

Brushed Metal: And the whole no-official-name-for-this-theme game. You know what I think they should call him? They should call him “The iLife Theme”. You know, like make it official, put it in the HIG: “This theme is only for use by iLife apps.” Don’t you think?

Safari: Look, Brushed. I’m not involved in this sort of thing. I just want to render pages, keep getting faster. Keep closing leaks. I’m just not involved with the theme stuff.

Det Àr hÄrt att vara metallisk i dessa dagar.
