So damned goofy

Ben Brooks, regarding Outside for iPhone:

“It just looked so damned goofy from the screenshots I couldn’t bring myself to download and pay for it.”

This dismissal elicited a visceral reaction in me. I didn’t develop Outside, but I use it.  I consider myself a man of good taste; hardly someone who’d use a “damned goofy” app. Saturday morning-style animations aren’t for everyone. Neither are hyper-detailed weather apps. All I want to know is, will today be sunny, rainy, hot or cold.

If it’s “cute” in the meantime, that’s fine with me.
