Given the debacle of the last update, I think I'll wait a couple of weeks on this one...

That's an improvement. Thank you Apple.

Any one else's say OS Build 7.0.3?


Way too skeuomorphic for a 7.x release. That image of an ATV on the left is far too recognisable and the background is not burning my retinas to a crisp.
