I apologize for my recent absence (nothing new about that it would  
seem), but I'm pushing to get K2 out the door just now.

I like the colors in the current mockup; I wouldn't mind them being  
more lively and 'modern', but as such they work very well; though I  
think the collapsable headlines background really rubs me the wrong  
way. They feel like they haven't received the same attention the menu  
has seen.

I'm with Joen though, I think tabs are a better solution. They are  
just more instantly understandable, whereas it takes me just a little  
longer to realize where I am when I look at the current menu.

Apart from that I think it looks very nice. I wouldn't mind seeing  
the entire left menu relegated to a slide-in, but how usable that  
would be is questionable, so...
