iOS 7 drives a young child to tears

iOS 7 drives a young child to tears
“No! I don’t want iiiiitttt,” sobs little Jack, 4 years old, and terribly troubled at the appearance of iOS 7 and its lack of skeumorphism in the user interface.

Apparently pastel colors are only so-effective at enticing children, and little Jack is evidently immune to such soft and bright colors or the accompanying parallax view as the icons seem to float above the wallpaper.

Imagine the horror this child faced after seeing the iPad his father just updated. While iOS 7 brings a host of new features to the table, there is just no satisfying some people, and young Jack could very well be the personification of those disaffected users.

We catch the exchange mid-meltdown where little Jack seems to be denying it is the same iPad he has used before. “What’s different?” he asks. “Everything!” weeps the child.

“You’re just gonna have to get used to it,” states his dad. “No! I don’t want it!” The full meltdown then ensues and you can imagine that little Jack was not allowed to play with the iPad (at a minimum). Thankfully, the video is only 16 seconds long, however, fair warning, that may exceed the tolerance levels for some of our readership’s ability to endure the sights and sounds of a wailing child.

I would stuff a piece of a kitkat bar down that boy's throat. Ones with an android logo. The other piece will be for me.

Seriously, wtf is wrong with you? Maybe if someone had done that you as a child you'd know better.

Naw, he doesn't care. It's the internet; everybody's a bad boy. The best you can do is hope they don't reproduce, otherwise keep the flammenwerfer nearby to spray all over its nest.

Really? A guy named Alan R or something here posts so many threads for apple products and he is a fanboi. Go figure.

Nope, you can clearly see this kid is crying because of the iOS 7. Title : iOS 7 drives a young child to tears The story of the video : Kid is crying because of the iOS 7. iOS 7, iOS 7, iOS 7... Mr. Grammar Nazi, there's nothing wrong with my comment. It's just a problem with your job, you're too focused on your job. Relax, take a day off, you will feel better.

Then it should be something like this. It's just a freaking OS / It's just freaking iOS. Not sure though :)

Yes there is. "It's just a freaking iOS, what are you crying for?" -----> It's just a freaking OS, what are you crying for? You tried correcting me but clearly failed. I proved you wrong once again like always. :)

Wow..fabulous how today's children have grown with these gadgets and now they take them for granted. I've grown with Windows 95 but i really don't feel like i should cry over an update or a device. I guess that the kid is just as old as the first iPhone.

You don't feel like crying over an update because your butt is around 22+ years old. This kid will probably cry for anything 'til his mid teens.

If kids opinion doesn't match yours, it doesn't mean that there is an problem.

You certainly are a child yourself judging by the response. This kid is obviously spoiled to s**t.
