Do you hate Apple’s increasing tendency towards skeuomorphic designs? In other words, do you hate how Apple keeps on slathering their beautifully designed apps with a revolting faux wood or leather finish?
You’re not the only one, but luckily, it’s not hard to remove.
All you need to do is download the excellent LionTweaks for free and then click “Change iCal Leather To Aluminum” and “Change Addressbook Leather to Aluminum” to get the old iCal and Address Book back in OS X Lion (although it doesn’t work in OS X Mountain Lion, alas)
Much better. Of course, aluminum’s still skeuomorphic in its own way, but at least it doesn’t look like iCal’s getting whored up for a rodeo line dance.
