    I have been pondering Apple's obsession with thinness above all else, and it finally occurred to me: Jony Ive is living vicariously through his "children."

    Sir Ive then:

    Sir Ive now:

    ...so we can finally put that one to rest. ;)

    Apple loves to tease and taunt.

    The masterful way they withold certain features and performance from their buyers assures that Apple will always have pent up demand.

    They've programmed us to wait... Apple’s the master of manipulation and control :eek:

    Clearly it's because of planned obsolescence.

    Well, I have theorized that the primary colors and flatness that first appeared with iOS 7 are because Ive became inspired by Fisher Price and PlaySkool when picking his kids up from daycare once.

    So you can't be too far off I don't think.

    I'm still waiting for the PowerPC version of Snow Leopard. Be nice to finally get it for my PowerMac and PowerBook.

    How much longer do you think I have to wait? ;)

    The mere mention of the model name "PowerBook" brings back wonderful memories of the many I've owned and enjoyed prior to the "iOS years" aah yes...

    The wait?

    Given Apple's recent pattern I'd say it's not looking good :eek:
