Michael Margolis: Steve Jobs Rejected The New Apple TV Designs Years Ago


Michael Margolis is a former Apple TV engineer that said “I implemented much of the AppleTV 2.0 UI years ago. The new home page UI makes me cry.” He also added “Fun fact – those new designs were tossed out 5 years ago because SJ (Steve Jobs) didn’t like them. Now there is nobody to say ‘no’ to bad design.” There you have it, folks. If you do not like the current Apple TV design, now you know that Steve Jobs didn’t either. [Macgasm]
