Apples Perfektionismus im Licht der iPod Akku Diskussion

Der Artikel von Dan Hill, Technology & Design Manager bei BBC Radio & Music Interactive in London, veröffentlicht bei Core77 ist bereits von Anfang Februar und enorm lesenswert:

"So, Apple have produced a series of beautifully near-perfect products - honed, polished, focused, designed to be "one-reading-only". For this, their team is rightly lauded I think. However, as a result of this near-perfection, the effect of each slip will be grossly amplified, as each product feels so finished that users don't think they can adapt; they don't feel part of a process of evolution. Apple need to find a way of retaining their quite brilliant pursuit of simplicity and attention to detail whilst also enabling change in their products - visibly enabling adaptation and seeing design as an experiential process after point of sale. In this way, they'd not only engage a generation who need a way in to technology, but nurture a generation who want to get involved in the product, modifying it over time."

"In fact, Apple's approach to the iPod battery is emblematic of the company's attitude to design generally. Or perhaps I should say of Steve Jobs's attitude to design. It was evident, for example, in the first version of the Macintosh (another design icon that is 20 years old this year), which Jobs insisted should have no expansion slots. In taking this view, Jobs was implementing his vision that computers were consumer products - like, say, food processors or TVs - not engineering test-beds. The Mac should have, as it were, 'no user serviceable parts'. It was perfect just as it was."
