You have to admire the guy, though. He has one **** of a nerve for charging $1,100 per hr unless he is the undisputed world expert in his field.
It's true - but only in the basement. There are other tracks on the other floors. Apple is entering Formula E - http://www.fiaformulae.com
I love those street level mock-ups. They are getting so real and yet remain so utterly fake. Something very 'model railway' about them 
A very very big niche. One that would (will) grow year over year with the development of better tech and associated services, and importantly, buy-in from the medical profession.
Why? Are you saying there are no other designers that can take Apple in a new direction without Apple failing? I don't see that at all. If Ive decides to leave I am fairly sure he will leave Apple in very capable hands. He already has a very solid team around him who have been there for years. As soon as Ive leaves another lead designer will take over all, or some of his jobs, that's all we know. I'd like to know why you think Apple will fall apart without knowing who that...
I can think of MANY other reasons I will never be the next Steve Jobs. I don't have to list them but suffice to say that all evidence thus far paints any such event highly unlikely. I have already apologized to my entire extended family so I am at peace with myself ;)
Great article. A proper in depth documentary on Ive and his world. I wouldn't draw any conclusions from the piece but I did take note of Laurene Powell Jobs comments :  - “Jony’s an artist with an artist’s temperament, and he’d be the first to tell you artists aren’t supposed to be responsible for this kind of thing.”, and (Comparing the careers of her husband and Ive), “very few people ever get to do such things,” but added, “I do think there’s a toll.” - referring to the...
Great read. Thanks! My favorite part ... "Jony's a bit bling"
Oh - it was the -ie's you were objecting to, not veggies as in vegetables I once saw an interview with Melvyn Bragg where he was speaking about his book on the English language. The one thing I remember was that he credited the strength of the English language with its 'open-ness'. By its ability to absorb virtually anything thrown at it and incorporate new words and phrases over time. He was comparing English to French which is a far more rigid language, always fighting...
Damn modern times! Men eating vegetables and salads! Poofters the lot of them. (That's an old school term, right?) But seriously, you are right in that 'scary' is flippant and if you like, infantile, but on the other hand ... Lighten up a little! I have no problems whatsoever with modern men (or women) using the vocabulary of children's stories. In serious conversations that kind of language will often undermine the points made, whether by men or women, but generally I...
