OK, you've all seen (mostly scrolled past!) my whines about Apple's penchant for form over function, leadership in disposable/recycle-only devices, horrific butterfly keyboards (for slimness vs. decent typing, so it's a subset of form over function, but so egregious it deserves its own mention), stubbornness to incorporate popular features (pens for tablets - how long we waited! - pens for laptops, touchscreens on laptops, etc, blah, blah, whine... So, I looked for a thread to post to because of this good article about the departure of Ives and his (for the last year+) declining influence on product design and couldn't find one, so I decided to create one! It's a good thought piece, if a little sloppy on details. If nothing else, I'll have a place to put my occasional rants on this topic without crapping up threads with other subjects! Have at it!
