Icon Porn: Feast Your Eyes On Snow Leopard’s Beautiful Icons

iTunes, Aperture and Mail

Aperture

Mail

iTunes

These three icons make rare direct references to Apple. The Aperture icon says “Designed by Apple in California,” the tag line used on many of the company’s products. The Mail app includes a postmark that says, “Hello from Cupertino, CA.” — the location of Apple’s headquarters. And in the iTunes icon, look at the middle of the CD spindle. It says: “iTunes 7’ and “Apple 2006.”

    The Keynote icon is extremely interesting, since Spring Awakening is not your average musical, featuring rather ‘adult’ themes. This particular song is about erotic dreams and onanism. See:
