  1. STEVE JOBS DOESNT HAVE HIS PULSE ON HIS CUSTOMERS…

    MOST OF THE COMPUTING WORLD IS MOVING TO OPEN SOURCE PHILOSOPHY….APPLE IS CLOSED ARCHITECTURE…

    EVENTUALLY AS THE POWER OF PROCESSING POWER TECHNOLOGY WILL GET SO FAST THAT THE DESIGN AND INTERFACE WONT MATTER…we wont need special engineers like Apple's

    IT WILL BE REPLICATED BY COMPETITORS>>>likE THE ANDROID ETC…

    INVESTORS SHOULD START TO THINK ABOUT SELLING THEIR APPLE STOCK

    IN 5-10 YEARS APPLE WILL BE OUT OF BUSINESS!!!

  2. The ten principles to approach to good design, defined by Dieter Rams, are the design philosophy used by Apple to create its products.
    I would not call it "Genius Design", but "Honest Design".

  3. I think it's more correct to say that Apple duplicated "Genius Design" model…
    What most people don't know is that Jonathan Ive, the man responsible for designing most of the Apple products since the late 90's, is a confessed follower of one of the most important designers of the 20th century. That man is Dieter Rams who was chief of design at Braun since the 60's.

  4. I disagree with the speaker. Apple is just focusing on what is fashionable and sometimes creating the fashion just like car companies do.

  5. NeXT computer was the base of OS X maybe it was a commercial failure, but it brought a lot of technology

  6. @ kidjr27,
    Trust me, the folks who are trying to take advantage of you have plenty of legal, conspicuous methods at their disposal to waste their time on all that. If someone is doing the things you claim, ask yourself why. Then ask yourself if those same people couldn't just utilize far easier means to accomplish the same goal. It's Occam's razor, or the "K.I.S.S. principle", my friend.

    (And BTW, the owl of the purple nest rests on the 3. Darkest night will soon be upon them.)

  7. @PlateauEast The macbook Air is one of the worse computers ever made. I owned one which my office bought to show off at meetings with clients. The problem was that we couldn't get any of out presentations onto it because it had no inputs (bad design). Needless to say, it was returned about a month later.

    You've clearly only owned Apple products for your entire life. Take a look at a company like alienware to compare to your imac. I already conceded the iPhone. As far operating systems I strongly disagree. Without Unix we wouldn't be having this conversation. Check somewhere like the international space station and find me a copy of OSX. And Itunes is definitely NOT well designed (but you only have a mac so you wouldn't know any better).

  9. Introduce Art and design into the science and engineering curriculum, watch the innovation spring from the colleges.
    Japan did this, They realized that education is next to useless unless it is broad.
    Feeding industry with very sophisticated button pushers is not very useful.
    Much better to have imaginative social and innovative ppl.

    It has to be a holistic approach which engages people with dignity as part of a social project.
    PPL work for free if it is fun and makes a difference even.

  10. Wow. I don't see how that you can jump to that sort of conclusion. Also the Illuminati had nothing to do with Satan.

  11. Most Apple products are amazing: Macbook Pro Series, Macbook Series, iPhone, Mac OSX, iPod, Final Cut Studio & Express, iMovie '09, iTunes, and soon the iPad.

    Apple has had some flukes though: Apple TV, Mac Pro (bc of GPU), Macbook Air, Mac Mini, iWork, and every Apple branded mouse ever made.

  12. What the hell is 'genius design?'

  13. well let's see. every version of the imac comes to mind. the newton, which didn't work that well but set the table for all later handheld tech. uh.. OSX with it's absolute superiority to any other OS. itunes as one of the most ingenious programs written in a generation and with the store included makes it completely dominant. the iphone and it's touch screen tech. it is the standard for all future mobiles hitting the market. macbook air… pretty cool and amazingly slim. is that enough?

  14. ok. look at every version of the imac. and i mean every one. massively different and influential. look at the iphone… the model for all mobiles from now until who knows when. you can go as far back as the newton, if you want. the thing didn't work that well but it lead to a lot of portable technology with that look. look at their operating system since the release of OSX. Look at itunes, one of the best and most ingenious pieces of software written in our generation

  15. @LordNapalm, I can't wait for their washer/dryer.

  16. @kidjr27, I'm confused by what you mean. Are you saying that some or all of the other comments here are just added by computers to make us think people agree or disagree with us, or to change what we think is true?

  17. @LordNapalm Even then, you drop an I phone on it's face, the glass is shattered and then you have to replace it. I bought a phone brand new for $20 and I've dropped it so many times but it always works fine.

  18. @kidjr27

    You're a conspiracy nut. I pity you.

  19. @PlateauEast enlighten me.

  20. you'd think he'd wear a nicer shirt when pontificating on design and issues relating…
