Why The iPod Will Soon Be Calling The Tune At Apple

In the space of 18 months, Apple will have gone from being a $6 billion-a-year company to a $12 billion-a-year company.


Brushed Metal And The HIG

The big problem, obviously, is that Apple has simply ignored the HIG. Another problem, however, is that the HIG itself ocntributes to the conflation of the two arguments — visual appeal vs. consistency.


Aqua Vs Metal

Yes, it's one hell of an inconsistency. In fact, I once thought that one of the visual look will die out as Mac users clamour for one look over the other. Well, that didn't happen. In fact, I think that most Mac users actually gotten used to the fact that there are two different looks on their Macintosh. I know I have.

The difference wasn't as drastic as the OpenDoc days, where you actually have to do different things (for example, to create a new document) in different applications. But it is an inconsistency that leaves a black mark on Apple's design nonetheless.


Chasing Apple's Dominant iPod

If your music library — like most — is dominated by MP3s, there's still no beating the iPod. Except for maybe the iPod mini.
