I've already said that they aim for good design, which is my point. Movie references are not very convincing arguments since they are based on a work of fiction and fantasy. The only fact you assert in your post is incorrect. Pixar is a division of Disney and has no CEO. Jobs has no executive position in Disney or Pixar but has a seat on the Disney board (he is the largest individual shareholder).

    You're right on the CEO/Disney part. Although Steve Jobs is no longer the "CEO," he does still have tons of influence in Pixar and is a stakeholder (and stockholder) in Pixar (and Disney).

    But regardless, let me bring you back to the original point:

    Fact: none of Apple's other iPods or the original iPhone (collectivly "handheld devices") have visible screws.

    Conclusion: Apple tries to keep screws hidden.

    Is that really too daring of a conclusion?

    Having finally tried to watch the source video for this article, I think it's quite annoying. There were eight mentions of the product name in the first minute, once in title and seven times verbally. That seems a little condescending, as if the audience doesn't the product's name. I've also found the man's near constant hand motions to be pretty distracting as well.
