    Old video but relevant now more than ever.

    Looks like the marketing people have taken over at Apple, and good design is relegated to the trashcan.

    Take the notch as a perfect example of marketing over design.



    misspelled the thread title oh well

    Apple hasn't said anything about the notch.

    How's that marketing?

    They want the phone to stand out from all the other "same" looking phones, but compromised the design in the process

    Seems far fetched. Today, Apple makes some of the most highly reviewed and highly sold products out there. People like their products. This doesn’t change because some people are hung up about a notch.

    Steve use to say you work from the customer experience backwards to the technology.

    Nothing about animated poop suggests Apple did that with some of these recent Apple designs.

    However, Apple Watch and Air Pods really do live up to the Steve Jobs tradition of focusing on great products, so all is not lost.
