Current Events - 27 September 2013

When the week began, Apple trumpeted dizzying adoption of its new iOS7 mobile operating system, with a whopping 200 million downloads. But users aren't totally happy. In fact, some are a little queasy.
Apple customers have taken to Apple message boards and Twitter to complain that the flashy graphics in the new operating system for the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch are making them light-headed. With the new update, navigation between screens produces an effect quite different from the static swipe of before. Now the icons zoom in, like opening credits of a science-fiction movie.

It's a fact of life in consumer technology that when change comes to familiar services, a loud group complains that they missed the old ways. Analyst Greg Sterling of Sterling Market Intelligence believes the online comments are "an over-reaction" but that if it really develops into a problem "Apple will fix it."
