How Steve Jobs Infused Passion Into a Commodity
“In most people’s vocabularies, design means veneer. It’s interior decorating. It’s the fabric of the curtains and the sofa. But to me, nothing could be further from the meaning of design."

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.
