A few amusing points from the iPad HIG

I ran across these several weeks ago, but only posted them today due to the lifting of the iPad NDA

Regarding UI Design

"Give people more things to see and control, by adding more camera angles; more knobs, switches, and dials;" page 11
"Downplay application controls by minimizing their number and prominence." page 25


Regarding Icon Design

"...a 72 x 72 pixel application icon. These dimensions give you a sizable area in which to tell a story about your application." page 32

"Give people more things..." is about translating iPhone applications to iPad with its bigger screen. It makes perfect sense.
