Nice that she did some iconic stuff but it's not that way because of its artistic quality but it's retro time frame and ubiquity.

Please, go find the current designers of the os icons (not the skeuromorphic ones) and i'd be interested to hear their stories.
Gee, pretty harsh. Let's see your UI work from the 80s.

The current stuff is shiny tripe nobody will remember in twenty years.

I would go to coworkers computers and change the error beep to:
"I can't let you do that, Dave".

The shrieks were...enjoyable.
Lol, I read that as MacsBug, and wondered what a debugger had to do with icon development =)

But everyone has a brain (even if it's small and/or they don't use it). Not everyone has a concept.

I think one of those names was partially a play on the other one, actually. Forget which was first.

Sometimes I'd zap the PRAM too if he was watching, because that's the kind of kung-fu that wins pay rises. Anyway - this was a frequent routine and everyone was familiar with the slamming doors and the hysterical outburst - always the same phrase. One day, when he was off on holiday, we snuck into his room and fired up his Mac, and used ResEdit to change every dialogue box we could find to say: "THE WHOLE FREAKIN' SYSTEM'S COLLAPSED!!!". The following Monday when he came back from holiday, as usual he shut himself in his office to catch up with all his jobs. Within half an hour, we heard the familiar sound of his chair crashing to the floor as he stomped to the door which flew open - he stormed out with a red face and steam coming from his ears and stood shaking with fury, and said... "FFFFFFFFFFRRRFFFFRFFFFFF!!!!" and then turned around and stormed back into his office again! Five minutes later he came out and asked politely, with a smile, if I could fix his computer for him. A lucky escape!
Now THAT my friend is a scene that belongs in a retro movie! I would've loved to have seen that LMAO!

"big(best)" is not the same as 'sustainable'
Should the 'triple dip' economic disaster actually come to fruition, see what industry gets hit the most, advertising and industrial design or oil.

well considering oil if a finite source and creativity isn't and not to mention the push in clean energy the last few years i'd say oil would be the first to go. Advertising will always be the biggest thing.

Hmmmz. What do you think the average joe values most: oil (petrol/gas), or (annoying) advertising?

Get over it. Creatives don't count for **** when the $/gallon increases.
