Former Apple TV Engineer: Steve Jobs nixed the new Apple TV UI five years ago

“Former Apple TV UI designer and ‘Professional Hobbyist, Apple TV’ Michael Margolis went vocal on Twitter about the new Apple TV redesign last night,” Seth Weintraub reports for 9to5Mac.
“He says that Steve Jobs himself tossed out the new designs 5 years ago,” Weintraub reports. “He adds, ‘Now there is nobody to say ‘no’ to bad design.’”

“Apple is widely expected to release a full Apple HD product in the coming year,” Weintraub writes. “Steve Jobs told biographer Walter Isaacson that he’d cracked the code to the TV but it doesn’t appear that Apple has yet implemented that vision.”
