Pretty sure he meant "help raise the palate and raise the taste level . . ."—not "palette."
Left brain-lock alert. I'm surprised to see this from you.Ive's "designs" are really sculptures, meant for touch as much as vision. Remember he's the son of a silversmith. Silver is the most tactile metal.All his work, the secret of its appeal, is due to how it feels in your hand as much as how it looks to your eye even if you don't realize it because it's sealed off in your poor neglected right brain. And even if you put it in a case, you know that elegance is there...
You're taking what the reporters said for what Ive said. He would not likely misrepresent, since he is a machinist. Being inaccurate gets you nowhere in that trade, except into trouble. In journalism, it can get you a Pulitzer.
Your pretend bluster is off-key, no surprise.The context for DED's headline was that the Times was shut out from access to Tim Cook. That is true.Now we see in part two with Jony Ive that the intrepid reporters were used—as in exploited— by Apple to make a serious point about the Cook-Ive regime's product focus.They were apparently shunted to Ive, who portrays Cook as having the commitment and patience to explore new materials and processes that set Apple's devices so far...

Good find. Thanks, Aldous.
Troll whining. Typical, but still disgraceful.
Interesting story I just skimmed through about that era, thanks.So now we have the Duranty Prize for Mendacity in reporting. No use nominating Chen and Richtel just for the shaming value, because it's supposed to be about foreign affairs.Maybe we could nominate them for a Pullet Surprise. Winners receive a rubber chicken, mounted on a simulated mahogany plaque.
I'm assuming you'll soon be wearing left and right 80" (virtual) screens on your face. Then all bets about content are off.
Assuming the Times itself still has an interest in ethics. This pair of "reporters" really crossed a line in credibility, as if they didn't care to cover their tracks. Here's what commenter pontavignon said on Philip Elmer-DeWitt's blog:That stuck out in the Times story for me as well. It's as if the reporters are preying on the ignorance of their average readers about the WWDC. Shameless. So much so that one suspects that the Times is trying to pressure Apple over some...
