    You can literally buy ten 4.7GB DVD-Rs for the cost of one 4GB USB thumb drive. If you want to get physical media out to more than two or three people, USB thumb drives simply aren't practical from a...

    Ive's design philosophy is nearly the opposite of what you suggest... He designs products in such a way that if something is drawing attention to itself, it better have some important function and be...

    Agreed, I laughed when I read that he was complaining that the project he was directly in charge of was stagnating.



    That article is far too generous to him in terms of Mac OS X contributions....

    This is literally all positive news. I'm excited about Apple's future for the first time since before OS X Lion was released.

    - Jony Ive's great design sense will now be part of all the hardware...

    In fairness to Apple, I don't think it's a case of them specifically trying to make it difficult as much as it is user serviceability simply being nowhere on the priority list (although there are...

    Or why they are putting 5400 RPM HDDs in by default, when the 2011 models all had 7200 RPM drives or SSDs.

    I'm an ACMT, so I'm comparing difficulty to that of products like the white eMacs, iBooks G4, and the older CRT iMacs, which were godawful to take apart and put back together. Apple has never gone...

    True, though that's more a result of Apple's restrictions on web browsers on iOS. Google was allowed to use neither their own javascript engine nor Safari's "Nitro" optimizations. Not very healthy...

    Then why does Apple allow Chrome for iOS? It directly competes with Safari.

    I'm more concerned about relying on TomTom for map data than I am about Apple's ability to improve the app itself. TomTom has for years been the laughing stock of navigation solutions in North...

    I think someone at Apple didn't think something through as well as it should have been.

    Your level of sexism is a truly wondrous thing to behold.

    Eh, you know I don't count hearsay as fact unless it comes directly from an Apple official, Dennis. :p

    But yes, either way, 2013 is not the same as last month.

    Mediocrity from the competition is no excuse to get sloppy with one's own products. ;)

    Well, I'm sure Ive is in it for the great products. He may be overestimating how representative he is of Apple as a whole though, to say the least.
