Interview with Ive
nubneck submitted this link: The Independent has an interview with Jonathan Ive, Apple's designer. It's a very good read, with some insight into the design of the new iMac:
Because Ive's designs aren't intended simply to attract, pictures consistently don't do them justice. It's only first-hand that you notice the tiny things: the magnetically-operated latch on the notebook computers; the light which, when the machine is "asleep" rather than off, "breathes" brighter and dimmer; the drop-hinge on the iBook, which puts the screen further away than usual on a notebook.
