Multi-windowing! It looks good. But paging through a 1955 issue of Life magazine last night, I uncovered why I hate this new design trend towards curved edges:

They remind me of old refrigerator designs. I hated those.

    Unfortunately when your holding a device with sharp edges it actually hurts your hand. So for practical reasons curved edges are superior.

      Really? That’s news to everyone who has been holding handheld devices with straight edges since the 1990s. Including news to me.

        Some people haven’t been holding said devices since the 1990′s and haven’t developed the calluses from years of sharp-edged device holding. I think this may be interesting from a evolutionary standpoint, when in the future the earth is populated either by the sharp edged device users or the rounded edged device users- we will have to see what group manufacturers allow to survive.
