Steve Jobs on iTunes 10 Icon Lambasting: "We Disagree"S

That's what he said to designer Joshua Kopac when he told him that the iTunes 10 logo "really" sucks. No, not "prepare to die". I mean "We disagree."

Kopac:

Steve,

Enjoyed the presentation today. But…this new iTunes logo really sucks. You're taking 10+ years of instant product recognition and replacing it with an unknown. Let's both cross our fingers on this…

Jobs:

We disagree.

Well, I must admit that I completely agree with Steve Jobs and disagree with Joshua Kopac. The iTunes 10 icon doesn't "suck" and this is not about brand recognition. The iTunes 10 icon is an inane, insipid piece of shiny bore that one of the designers for Windows Vista vomited after having an orgy of sex and tropical cocktails with a stock clipart rep back in 1994. Someone found it fossilized in a dumpster, polished it, and then shoved it inside the resources folder of that bloated piece of software that some people call iTunes and I call iTurd.

Yes, I feel much better now, thank you very much. [Wired]
