    I noticed that when using iMessage that messages that I send sometimes are two different shades of blue. Anyone know what it means?

    They have a gradient and the color changes as you scroll through your messages. The one at the bottom is the darkest.

    It's a very subtle gradient, exactly like Europa said.

    Its only purpose is to provide very subtle eye candy. Great attention to detail on Apple's part, as usual!

    And the same applies for regular SMS green text bubbles. The gradient fill might be more easily observed as a big screen capture on your computer screen. In the screenshot below, I obscured as little as possible so as to allow you to see as much of the gradient fill of the text bubbles as possible:

    Actually, I live in Miami. On average, 340 out of the 365 days of the year are awesome days for the beach. :D

    I'd rather Apple skip the eye candy and get iOS 7 working better. I'm tired or Safari crashing and my phone locking up. This is disgraceful on Apple's part.

    Well, today, we are one step closer to the public release of iOS 7.1. Let's hope Apple will address some of these issues.

    I'd certainly hope that a 7.x update would fix this crap. We're on 7.0.4 already with no relief.
