the little things

Sometimes it's the little details, seemingly utterly dropped on the floor, that bum me out the most.

OSX's calendar app's week view shows you the current time, via a horizontal line, which works well enough, but then uses a circle to the right of the day column to indicate which day it is.

Would it have killed them to make it, say, a triangle/arrow pointing to which event/day it's referring too? Or somehow otherwise bracket the current moment - two circles, or maybe ( ) or < > characters to their side?

I guess the "you are here" circle is meant to mirror the circle used to highlight the current day number at the top, but to be honest this post is the first time I noticed the circle at the top, because my attention (and "the user") in general is below that, in the day view itself.
