Hi Ryan. If this wasn’t interesting, why leave a comment at all? Do you feel cheated because another blog promoted this story as an “actual design flaw” when in reality, it very well may have been intentional? I have no insight as to why it is aligned this way, so for all I know, this could have been done on purpose.

Looks like you’re using the wallpaper I made. Even though there is a large chance you’re not, I’m going to assume you are. This makes me happy.

Hi Chris. Which wallpaper are you referring to? My blog’s background image?

Hi Nick. Unfortunately, I notice these types of things quite frequently. Same thing with pictures that aren’t centered on walls or slightly tilting one direction or the other. 🙂

[…] Well… there you have it… the resignation letter. But was there a reason Steve resigned? Is there some impetus behind the decision?  Well, I searched high and low… and discovered the possible reason was already revealed… and very few were astute enough to see it at the time… over a week ago.  It call came down to a single pixel.

I haven’t upgraded to Lion yet, so I wouldn’t know. Does the Lion version line up the same way?

Hello. I just wanted to say that there have been some insulting and offensive comments, so they were removed. I don’t maintain this blog because I’m hoping to meet the worst of the worst on the Internet. You’re free to speak your mind, but please don’t be disrespectful or hateful.

As for the post itself, it’s a simple observation on something that I was curious about. It definitely is not a comment on the quality of Apple’s UI team or the product. I write little observations about Apple products because I love them so much and use them every day.

Thanks for visiting my blog!
