Apple Sans Ive – TechCrunch


22 bookmarks. First posted by chadlandman 15 days ago.


Well, this has been interesting. After almost 30 years with Apple, Jony Ive is leaving to found his own firm, LoveFrom, with his friend and frequent collaborator Marc Newson — also leaving Apple . The response to this news has been predictably histrionic from Apple watchers and press.
The narratives, to summarize, are essentially that:
Jony had checked out, become incompetent or just plain lazy
Apple is doomed because he is leaving
If those narratives look contradictory, then you have eyes.
If you take the sum of the breathless (dare I say thirsty) stories tying together a bunch of anecdotes about Jony’s last couple of years, they are trying to paint a picture of a legendary design figure that has abandoned the team and company he helped build, leading to a stagnation of forward progress — while at the same time trying to argue that the company is doomed without him.
OK.
Ironically (or perhaps inevitably), even the phrasing of the tweets that accompanied these stories were couched in inflammatory positioning. Tim Cook’s email (actually quite plainly stated) was touted as “scathing”; the Journal posited the question: “Why hasn’t Apple had a hit product in years? A look at the internal drama around the departure of its design chief helps explain.” A conclusion that its story only hints at.

is very fair to Ive and also, the Shel Silverstein bit would be super irresponsible if true…

OK.

Perhaps my favorite piece on Ive’s departure. I agree with the whole thing, top to bottom.
