i was listening to national public radio yesterday and heard them talking about some american design show that's touring the country. they went through the 4 or so parts of the exhibits and said what type of stuff was in it... the first 3 groups were like chairs and that kinda stuff.. then when it got to the fourth group..... the two things they talked about were apple computers and these clear trash cans that are apparently popular... the "expert" was saying how the cube was great cause of the translucence and seeing the parts and all that. and then he mentioned another white translucent which i'm sure was the imac.. though he didn't mention it by name. once i heard design i thought apple. at some museum in nyc about design, they had a few imacs and stuff (2 years ago) and a bunch of other things that were clearly influenced by the imac colors and plastic... just thought i'd share this interesting little tidbit.
