Big News from Apple Today, color me unimpressed

Being a recent convert to Apple, I am always finding ways to sing their praises to anyone who will listen and convert my old Windows friends to the side of good and light. But today, I came home all excited to update my Nano, after today's announcements for updates and the new iPhone.

So I plugged in my Nano with hands shaky with anticipation. I wait impatiently as the download progress bar moves across the top of the screen.

I excitedly eject my Nano and look at the screen......(insert screech car tire sound here) The improved icons are now one icon per screen so I have to scroll for my music, then tap music twice more to get to my playlist?! What gives! I go back I scroll some more check out the new clock faces...okay cute but I don't use the clock so no big deal.

I am momentarily frustrated until I find in settings I can turn off certain icons and restore the icons I do want to the smaller size to I can have four per screen. Whew! That was close! I was about to reset the whole darn thing!

So for me personally, I'm not happy with the update, I don't think it offers much, if you like big icons that take up the whole screen, though this update is for you! Enjoy!
