My thoughts on WWDC 2013 Keynotes.

iOS 7, is it really Designed by Apple?

Apple showed off their latest iOS version on WWDC 2013. Well while I love the functionality of the new OS, I am not happy with the design process.

I mean the icons looks as if its designed by a kid with a box by crayons. It has too much of colour and it no way looks like its made by Apple. It seems that someone has installed a Cydia Theme in iOS.

I am sharing some pictures of the new iOS7 do comment your thoughts about it. Do you like it or hate it?

Mac OS X Mavericks uses Windows file sharing by default. Why?

OS X Mavericks

As you already know that Apple OS X uses AFP (Apple Filing Protocol) and Windows uses SMB (Server Message Block), the new Mac OS X uses SMB2 over AFP !

Ok, I know you will say that how does it matter? or You would say it would be easier to share with Windows based computers. Well yes, but one of the most like feature of the Mac OS X, Time Machine over LAN relies on AFP. Third party Time Machine manufacturers have to reverse-engineer AFP to keep it working with the new version of OS X. What more bothering me is that who selected SMB2 ? OS X prior to OS X 10.7 uses open source implementation of SMB , called Samba. (used in popular Linux distro too) With OS X 10.7 , Apple replaced it with their own implementation SMBX.

 

Really Apple needs Steve Jobs.
