    Definitely worth a read, and possibly even worth including as an article in all design classes!!

    Since the devil has always been in the details, why does it appear that only Steve Jobs has read that particular manual?

    There really ought to be an 'Apple 101' course available to all!

    Seems that way. All the other OSes seem designed for "work" first. Linux on the server, Vista in the enterprise, etc... doesn't do much good for users trying to get things done.

    In Apple's perspective user values is basically what Apple allows you to do.

    Take a leaf from the iPhone, no third party apps. Woohoo!

    as long as you stay in appleBOX, they design the box to be heaven-like, but if u wanna escape the box, u got stuck. its a balance. very delicate.
