Skeuomorphic design- When is it too much?

Interesting article about Apple’s use of skeuomorphic design in their UI. How do we, as designers, feel about this kind of visual layout compared to the more modular approach incorporating visual hierarchy by apple’s colleagues over at Windows?

Interesting how this sort of ties into our recent reading from class.

    Dan, what’s the connection to our in class reading!? How do you feel about it!? Interesting find. Apple’s design approach for me is majorly problematic on different levels, but it would be nice to hear/read how you unpack this (an other) issue for yourself.
