iTunes 5

So, in case you haven’t heard yet, iTunes 5 kills brushed metal dead. Thank. Fucking. God. Of course, this means that I have to go back and figure out how to duplicate this for iRooster, which will be an abolute pain in the ass. Oh well.

My renouncement of brushed metal made a fairly well-known Mac guy happy earlier today. Also, John Gruber of Daring Fireball has a wonderfully funny jab at Apple over this:

[T]he phone rings. Brushed Metal picks it off the passenger seat and looks at the caller ID. It reads: AQUA. Brushed Metal takes the call.

Brushed Metal: What do you want?

(It’s not yet 10 a.m., but Aqua is drunk.)

Aqua: Howdya fuckin’ like it now, bee-yotch? WHOO HOO!

Brushed Metal: Fuck you, Aqua.

Aqua: WHOOO!

Cut to black.
