Isn't it weird?

We got Jonathan Ive saying he liked the idea of using old things for a second life.

Yet he designs stuff that you must trow away when its broken because the design makes it impossible to repair it.

Ive.. your designs may look nice but overall they suck.
Stop with your planned obsolescence designs!

Thank you. I was thinking the exact same thing.

Yeah because only Ive and Apple do this.

Just curious what exactly what Apple product(s) you've had to throw away?

With Steve gone, Jonny is Apple's most valuable asset, bar none.

I can't wait to see what he's been working on for iOS and OS X.

Quick straw poll to the UK folk. Who watched Blue Peter, who watched Magpie, and who watched both?

OMG a real fanboy. How can I ever have a normal conversation with you.

Have you even seen the new Macbook Retina and iMac?

And who cares what Microsoft does. Go back to the iFixit site and see what scores new Apple products get.

That's fantastic. What I hope the students learn that Jonny has not:

1. A computer shouldn't cut your hand open for the sake of brilliant design.

2. Repairability is part of great design.

I wasn't aware that the Retina MacBook or iMac had to be thrown away if something went wrong with them.

Hated Magpie!

I wonder if the milled out BP badge will take pride of place next to Petra's bust? Or are they going to wang it into the new Blue Peter Garden at Salford?

Just curious what product Apple is unable to repair for someone if needed?

Both.

One of my junior school classmates was on Magpie for finding a 13-leaf clover!

New iMac:
With the iPad-like adhesive severed, we bust out the heavy-duty stuff.
Repair faux pas alert! To save space and eliminate the gap between the glass and the pixels, Apple opted to fuse the front glass and the LCD. This means that if you want to replace one, you'll have to replace both.
The fused display may look awesome, but at what cost, Apple? At. What. Cost!?
The cost is quickly apparent: cutting open the display destroys the foam adhesive securing it shut. Putting things back together will require peeling off and replacing all of the original adhesive, which will be a major pain for repairers.


And thats just one thing...there is more.. for you to find out what those are.

Agreed - but, to avoid (yet another) international incident over the pronunciation, let's just call it "ally" shall we?
