Ed spins an obvious tale.
Sir Ive brought us the iMac, iPod, iPhone, and iPad, Mac Pro, and ever thinner Mac notebooks, of course, and heavily, heavily influenced the modern genre of each. Thinner, lighter, faster was the mantra, and we saw it come to light every year.
What hath Jobs and Ive wrought?
Battery life be damned. Ports be damned. Everything needed to be thinner and lighter. Functional requirements became a forgotten afterthought. That explains why iPhones, ever thinner and lighter, had abysmal battery life. That explained why the MacBook line never had the ports that customers wanted. That explains why the cylinder can trash can Mac Pro brought derision instead of customers. Mac butterfly design keyboard? Guess who?
Ive is out, those days are gone. I hope.
