A former Apple worker claims that the the new Apple TV interface was five years ago by Steve Jobs was rejected because he was not good enough. Michael Margolis, who in the past to the interface of Apple TV worked, said this on Twitter. He added also to add that apparently no one at Apple is more to say no to bad design. Self Margolis is clearly unhappy about the new interface.
The reviews about the new interface of Apple TV are mixed. The small device is mainly seen as the ideal accessory for the iPad or iPhone, according to many reviewers. As a standalone device really missing too much. Example, you may be viewing YouTube or Vimeo, but many of
the services of third parties are not accessible on the device itself.
In the biography of Steve Jobs is that he read author and biographer Walter Isaacson said he finally found the code had been cracked on television. Apparently that is not the current Apple TV. According to rumors, Apple will probably next year with a high definition TVon the market, but nothing is certain.
To be clear – he didn’t like the original grid. This was before the iPhone was popular and before the iPad even existed.
Given that the iPad is far more successful than the AppleTV, migrating the AppleTV to look more like the iPad was probably a very smart move – even if some of the users of the old UI don’t prefer the new one.
The new UI shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone. There is a clear effort at Apple to make everything match the look and feel of their popular iOS products – starting with Lion and increasing momentum with Mountain Lion. [9to5Mac]
