Apple (AAPL) roundup: 1) 9to5 Mac reports iOS 7's Jony Ive-designed UI has shed "all signs of gloss, shine, and skeumorphism." The WSJ reported something similar in March. 9to5 also reports iOS 7 sports new icons, toolbars, and tab bars. 2) OS X 10.9 (Cabernet) will reportedly feature an improved Finder app and possibly iOS-like multitasking and app-pausing features. 3) ISI's Brian Marshall claims he "got cold feet" when going to buy a Galaxy S4, due to 6 years of relying on Apple's "flypaper-like" ecosystem. "In the tech industry, one of the most under-valued assets ... is the stickiness of an installed base." But he still considers a bigger iPhone a must.
