Q*Bert:
Did he seriously just compare this book to a Picasso painting?

I'm calling it: Jony Ive is done and this book is his swan song. Why would he be interested in a retrospective project like this if he weren't thinking of quitting? He's looking back at his time at Apple, not forward, and he won't be with the company much longer.

To Be Fair:
Yeah, seems like Ive's time is over. He should never have been involved in management, or anything other than industrial design.

I'm ashamed to say that I bought the fucking book - the big one.

I'll have to fondle it at night when nobody's looking.

I think Grubs has one thing right, they should've had someone else sell the book and Apple gives them a cut or vice versa. But really, everyone is going to forget about this fucking thing in 6 months so all of this bitching is just a waste of time and energy.

Those Taschen books are catalogs, complete with text, and the Napoleon set he's talking about is an attempt to recreate every aspect of an unfilmed movie. I have no idea why Gruber sees the need to defend every product Apple releases, even obvious vanity projects like this one.

Jony Ive was done when he was promoted to Chief Design Officer. He basically retired and handed off his duties to two other people. He hasn't made anything since. He also left for UK and he rarely comes to Cupertino.

enough already:
> Taschen came out with lower-priced editions of those books eventually, $200/300 is not out of line for a premium book like this.

For fucks’ sake, John! That’s a comma splice.

What the bloody fuck is this shit? A $200 book filled with Apple PR photos?

I'm waiting for the next edition of the book, which will be thinner and lighter, have fewer pages, and cost $500 more.

Do you realize they're selling these books in the Apple stores? There's a big area where you can ;leaf through the different editions. This level of navel gazing is astounding.
