There is a sense of excitement around Jony Ive taking over as head of the newly created human interface group. The reason for the excitement: hope for a new design direction for many software products. Most think Eddy Cue taking over Siri and Maps is a smart and natural thing to do.
Get ready for a lot less faux leather and wooden bookshelves in Apple’s software. Thank goodness.
