This is all about the personal opinions of a very narrow coterie of elitist designers, who are definitely not the target of this design philosophy. Time and again these BS merchants fail to appreciate the minority of their position, and that for all the eventful drama of the smartphone revolution the iPhone kicked off in 2007, the genre is still in its relative growth infancy and needs to attract even more "newbies" into its fold. Skeuomorphism, like it or not (I do, but...

In turn, Japan in particular has since then given back to the world several icons of industrial utility and consumer entertainment - the transistor radio, the Walkman, the Ghetto Blaster, Karaoke, Manga, Robotics, Trinitron to mention a select few, so copying obviously has not been a one-way Euro-America to Asia process after all is said and done.   It's a pity that most of the other Asian industrial powerhouses do not emulate this praiseworthy practice of looking into...
Correct (even though it is strongly believed that they may have deleted all incriminating emails that were non-Outlook in origin)   The only strategy left to Samsung in these circumstances was to "hide them in plain sight". It must have required several days of "burning the Midnight Oil" for Apple's tireless legal eagles to go through the reams of bumph and finally hit paydirt with this gem, this peach of an eye-opener.   High fives all round at 3 a.m. in the morning, I...
Standby in a few weeks for the Samsung "knock-off Nigel" version...
It's to do with Apple retail  support as a customer service being too helpful in this particular case, it seems.   There's a time to deny and a time to be firm - a time for everything under the sun...   You cast pearls before swine and they will trample them underfoot...
Stick to the issues, like DED does; personalities don't tend to contribute anything but (negative) emotion to the discussion and are not helpful. This is key to enjoying blog sites like AI.   By way of comparison, and to explain the point being made here, count the number of uses of the word "I", "you", "my" in all posts by the author and by others responding critically to the article.   A lot of "contributors" here purporting to "portray the facts" and "uncover lies" are...
  That would be ideal, everyone focussing on their core competency and doing it very well, instead of what we have today, software companies like Google and Microsoft lusting after Apple's fat hardware margins and spending billions going nowhere real fast.   Google missed on a great opportunity by being devious and antagonistic - now there's no turning back, however...                            
iTV, followed by iCar, and then, the pièce de Resistance: I, Robot!   I repeat my yearly prediction: the first non-living co-respondent in a divorce proceeding will be an Apple FemBot!!!
