The Sketchbook of Susan Kare, the Artist Who Gave Computing a Human Face
The challenge of designing a personal computer that “the rest of us” would not only buy, but fall crazy in love with, however, required input from the kind of people who might some day be convinced to try using a Mac. Fittingly, one of the team’s most auspicious early hires was a young artist herself: Susan Kare.

Less Human Than Human: The Design Philosophy of Apple
Maria Bustillos writes, "The widespread admiration for Apple's design ethos is in two parts: one functional, the other aesthetic. The functional aspects of Apple's products can indeed be magical and thrilling. But the vibe of Apple's product design is uniformly cool and impersonal, and the monolithic sterility of their glassy retail palaces is really something shocking. So far as design goes, it's an imperial aesthetic, entirely lacking a human dimension—or a potted plant."

Needing Jobs
“Jobs, jobs, jobs” has for months been the mandatory and obvious response of politicians when asked what they think the economy needs. (Like Tora, Tora, Tora, blah, blah, blah, and 9-9-9, it apparently doesn’t count unless said three times.) Sadly true to begin with, the phrase took on additional sorrow last month with the death of Steve Jobs, whose public persona had become synonymous with Apple.

Notable Designers Reflect on Steve Jobs
Jobs believed design and technology could improve the world. “I want to put a ding in the universe,” he told me when I first met him in 1981. This was a sentence he often used. He scolded the nonbelievers.

It's Apple's 'post-PC' world -- we're all just living in it
There is no Mac vs. PC here -- only "the future" versus "the past." It won’t be a debate about displays, memory, wireless options — it will be a debate about the quality of the experience. Apple is not just eschewing the spec conversation in favor of a different conversation — it’s rendering those former conversations useless.

Apple: A good problem to have
"The reward we’ve reaped as a society for shoving greenbacks into Apple’s bank account for the last decade is that we have much better stuff now. It’s the exact opposite effect we got from making Microsoft big."

What the iPad is Missing (No, it’s not a Camera)
Stephen Coles at The FontFeed write, "Apple has made some puzzling decisions over the last few years that leave one wondering if they really care about typography as much as they did in the 1980s when the Mac launched the desktop publishing revolution."

The iPad in the Eyes of the Digerati
The New York TImes asks six experts, "Does the iPad offer designers and users a new medium, or is it merely an iPod Touch on steroids? How much does the form factor of a device drive the creation of new kinds of content and how that content is read, heard and watched?"

Robin Sloan on the iPad: "Like noth­ing on the web, the iPhone is full-bleed. ... So more than any­thing else, the iPad looks to me like a focus machine. And it looks, there­fore, like such an oppor­tu­nity for sto­ry­telling, and for inno­va­tion around sto­ry­telling."
