Sitting here on the sofa with my "FatBook" Pro 16" on my lap and simply love it! Don't think I'd like it more if it was thinner.

To be honest I would. It wouldn’t have passed Jobs standards either. It look’s dated and tired but it’s functional and designed by committee. Now Apple’s strengths are in its internal processors rather than it’s external design although all of the good stuff is still based on Jony’s Unibody industrial design.

Apple now are more like the mid 90’s Apple with too many SKUs only this time they have plenty of cash.

Sorry Jony but you can't lay claim to the design. As kids decades ago we had Christmas paper honeycombed decorations that were exactly the same principle and we used to joke and put them on our noses.

At least you got rid of the notch....or did you?

It looks uncomfortable. Pinching style? Have to adjust breathing to speak.

The other foam you could just place on your nose.

I don't think Ive is claiming he invented the folding paper technique mate and I haven't seen anything which suggests he has. This is a bit of fun for a good cause and a different spin on the 38 red noses that have been designed since 1985. I understand there is an element of dislike for Ive from Apple fanatics for some strange reason, but this is a British tradition that he knows well and I am glad he has taken part.

I wonder if Apple paid Ive anything to stop him from ever working for Samsung or Google. If I were Samsung CEO I would pay Ive a fortune to start designing flagship products.

It should be added that there’s nothing funny about Comic Relief… Especially if it involves Lenny Henry and the usual suspects.

Doesn’t it alternate with the similarly gruesome “Sport relief” so there wouldn’t have been a CR last year?

This is one of those occasions where I wish MR didn’t have a ‘no one-word posts’ rule, because otherwise I could sum up what I wanted to say more concisely. Anyway, this nose is very nicely designed and I am going to buy a few. And if I could have left it at a simple one-word post:

It was tongue in cheek obviously, as was my other post about whether it would pass the children's snotty cold test. Its great he has taken part as Red Nose Day does some great work. For my part I had to shave off my hair and sit in a bath of ice cold water, but it raised a few hundred pounds and even more laughs.
