The HIG is Dead; Long Live the HIG

Michael Tsai:

Custom UI makes sense when you have a problem that the standard controls and conventions doné─˘t solve, but too often there doesné─˘t seem to be any design benefit from the deviations.

Exactly. This is why Gruber is wrong — as is Apple’s iTunes, to name just one particularly egregious example — and Read the Fucking HIG and Tim Morgan are so right.
