Her and Yosemite

osx_design_hero

OSX Yosemite was announced on Monday. I’m a fan of the new direction and appreciate all the attention to detail. Translucency FTW.

And there’s new app icons. I don’t mind them; in fact, I like them. They feel friendly and playful, but highly refined. And the icons, along with the interface, are not totally “flat” like in iOS 7. There’s depth and there’s volume, and it feels right to me. And is it just me, but it also makes me think of the movie Her, and the quasi-futuristic UI they presented. Not a copy, of course, just… the feeling.

That’s all. Really looking forward to the release.
