Steve Jobs defends the new iTunes 10 logo

Fri, Sep 3, 2010


The new icon for the recently released iTunes 10 marks a departure from previous versions of the icon. In place of a music note overlayed on top of a CD, the new icon is simply a music note housed inside a Apple-esque translucent bubble.

While some don’t seem to mind the update, others, predictably, aren’t always keen on change of any kind. Wired reports that one user in particular decided to email Apple CEO Steve Jobs and voice his displeasure at Apple’s new icon choice.

Joshua Kopac wrote to Jobs:


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, in typical fashion, responded with a short blurb:

We disagree.

Looks like we’re just going to have to agree to disagree.

    Yikes, it looks like the first time I have to say my Mac is uglier than my windows 7 machine. They need to recall, and possibly apologize for the ugliness of this one.
