    I can't see Apple emulating anyone's look. That would go against everything Jony Ive stands for.

    I hope you're right, though articles like this make me wonder:
    Apple iOS 7 May Sport 'Very Flat' Look Like Windows Phone
    I hope that rumor turns out to be untrue, because I personally love gloss, shine, transparencies, and a pretty UI. Young people may think the flat design is fresh and new. Maybe because I'm older and grew up with flat UIs like Windows 3.1, Windows 95, 98, etc. which were flat because of limited graphics capability, not because it looked good. So to me, the flat look is more old school and primitive.

    With a complete redesign, it would only make sense for them not to release a jb for the beta until many expected bugs are worked out. Frankly it must be tough for apple because the public expects too much too soon and our expectations are way too high. The pressure for innovation must be enormously stressful. Society today is way too hard to please in my opinion.

    The look is what I'm mostly looking forward to as well.
