That is worth writing an article about. Somebody else in apple designed some mildly refreshed icons. Watch out microsoft, the innovation machine is running ahead at full steam!

if your not a fan of the new icons then you have to hate art and innovation... because there all based on modern art.

Icon design is not innovation.

you my friend are not a developer... your words show foolishness

(A product can be good but without good visual design it will fail)

Personally, I'd love to see all B&W icons and display. Text apps in B&W and all others color of course. I would totally go for that look over this screaming lime green and washed out blue look. It's rough on the eyes but, no doubt great for those times you use your iPhone to get around in the dark.

So I gather Apple's "marketing team" are a bunch of eleven year old girls with no friends and a box of fluorescent Sharpies.

Everyone has to remember that what you see now is only Beta. It's not the finished product that will be released. Also there maybe security glitches and other things that are wrong. They are like that because it is not a finished product. It's a Beta which means a work in progress. That's why Apple is releasing a Beta to find what needs to be fixed or touched up. The more eyes on it the better as long as they return the feedback, Apple will fix it for the fall release.
Some people are moaning a groaning like this is the final release or something. Calm down, Apple is just getting started here. If you are part of the development community send your feedback so Apple can fix it.

There have not been very many (in fact, I can't think of any) occurrences where Apple has shown software at a WWDC that looked different than the final release.
Let's hope they are working on those icons.
However, it would seem very odd to me if Jony Ive looked at them 2 weeks before the show and said, "Meh, these are good enough for now." and let them be displayed for millions of viewers to see if he did not like them either. Therefore, I highly doubt the icons or interface will change much from what is being shown now.
