Having spent a week with the Nintendo Wii Fit, I now realize the anti-thesis of the Apple aesthetic isn't Microsoft, it's Nintendo. I swear, there's almost nothing consistent from screen to screen. You're left to figure nearly everything out, interface is inconsistent from game-to-game. Even the screens of the Wii (outside of the Fit) are all inconsistent. It's kinda weird. On one hand, it doesn't take you too long to figure things out. On the other hand, if you like familiarity and consistency across the board, it certainly lacks Apple's discipline and rigidity.
