Apple design going downhill?

I'm sorry, but these really look like toys, and I really can't take them seriously. The white front is just atrocious and the candy buttons... just no.

The black iPhone looked a bit off when it was stood up next to the white iPhone as well, it looked too black (no racism intended)

There had been some bad design by Apple ever since Jobs' death, the Apple TV's new interface for example, that has candy buttons and just doesn't look good. I remember reading about one of the designers of the interface saying something along the lines of: there isn't anyone to dictate bad design anymore.

Is the quality of Apple's design slipping ever since Jobs' death, is it actually better for him to regulate and filter through what's bad and what's good. Despite his stubbornness and stitched leather.
