iPhone Black == Brushed Metal?

Paul Goracke (via Brent Simmons):

As an iPhone user, I appreciate the consistency of interface among the applications. Gratuitous use of a black UI only serves to distance an application from this smooth interface flow–maybe not as bad as a yellow, green or pale blue background, or an application that doesn’t even use standard navigation, tool and tab bars–but distanced nonetheless. Ironically, as more applications use the black UI, any one app using it is no longer differentiated–it’s now just noticeably “not Apple.”
