Leopard Corners

There are certainly some rough edges to the new Mac OS, Leopard, but there are also many things to be happy about in it.

Most new menu items, including contextual menus, have rounded corners. But note here how the upper left corner of the included sub-menu does *not* have a rounded corner. It visually suggests the relationship between the two menus, better than two self-contained interface pieces, each with 4 rounded corners. Someone had to notice this issue, make the suggestion, and a group had to successfully decide to do it. Bravo, Apple, for the little things!
