I like the Thing naming, except for I wonder if it would cause them to overuse the Apple logo. Jobs wanted to keep the logo like Micky Mouse– there's never a place where there are more than one Micky around, to keep the fantasy alive. I guess this won't have any effect on the actual products, but the Apple logo is just everywhere. I can't believe that theres actually another Apple logo right below another one like that.

I guess it's not that unusual in fashion. Louis Vuitton and Gucci make patterns out of their logo and plaster it everywhere.

haha I agree with you. I still prefer Apple Watch instead of "iwatch" though

Because it hasn't happened under Steve Jobs in the past...

And why should we care about this? I think I trust the people who are at Apple now (including former or fashion industry executives) over a dead man.

Steve Jobs was a great man, and will always be remembered as an innovator. However, the past few years, his corpse has failed to innovate anything. Be happy Apple is a forward thinking company, unhindered by speculation of what a dead man would do.

God forbid, the American automotive industry would have completely given up and stopped producing/innovating automobiles upon the death of Henry Ford.

From all the posts like these, I think I should produce some "WWSD" bracelets. If you or employees of Apple get inspiration from Jobs, that's a good thing as inspiration is always a good thing. However the baton has passed and now the better question for Apple designers is "what is good for our customers?"
