That sums it up for me. What bothers me here is that the overlay has
the entire screen - at least 1200 pixels wide - but all these little
widgets are trying their hardest to be as small as possible. Here the
application browser - The Reason why people click the Activities
button - squeezes into less space than an iPhone's home screen. The
remaining seven eights of the screen do nothing.

The design may be more interesting if there aren't a hundred apps to
switch between (one reason why iPhone's works), but that needs some
well defined philosophy changes first.
