Apple's aesthetic dichotomy | Made by Many
On the perceived design disconnect between Apple's hardware and software: "Inside these unsentimental, rational, economic designs, Apple has delivered an increasingly sacchirine series of software releases. [...] The addiction to skeumorphism seems to say that it's a deeply held aesthetic position. My question is: why does this approach not extend to the devices themselves? Why not make a wooden case for the iMac, like those hideous Sony TVs from my childhood? Or why not a case that makes the computer look like a typewriter?"

What Apple needs to do now « Adam Greenfield's Speedbird
On the perceived design disconnect between Apple's hardware and software: "This is a terribly disappointing renunciation of possibility on Apple’s part, a failure to articulate an interface-design vocabulary as “futuristic” as, and harmonious with, the formal vocabulary of the physical devices themselves. One of the deepest principles of interaction design I observe is that, except in special cases, the articulation of a user interface should suggest something of a device, service or application’s capabilities and affordances. This is clearly, thoroughly and intentionally undermined in Apple’s current suite of iOS offerings."
