Google should iron out the kinks and bugs before they force a major change like that onto users. Look at how much space is left. They certainly can do much better than that.

That's not adding in some of the other issues the article refers to.

I agree. They should have done a better job of using more space. This is almost as bad as iTunes 11. That thing is a mess! I use to love making CD's because of how easy it was to drag and drop. But now it's just a pain.

I don't see what iTunes has to do with anything in the article.

A reference to iTunes in an android article. Looks more like a cheap potshot.

Paranoid much? I agreed with you, and just stated a similar experience I had with itunes 11. What's wrong with that? Thats where I go to get apps for my ipad. See the parallels yet?

"See the [parallels] yet?"

Oh no, he hinted at an app created by a third-party for an Apple operating system! Curb-stomping time.

He was just comparing it with another bad redesign. Cool down, it's a relevant comparison.

Wasted space isn't nearly as bad as the article makes out, the upper left boxes stay in place when you scroll so it's not like the entire screen is being wasted. Other than that, it's more unification of their ecosystem, no complaints here.
