Daring Fireball: Design as Branding

I love Gruber’s take here, as he rebuts Manjoo’s belief that Apple design has gone stale. It’s actually shocking to me how many people mistake design as aesthetics only, rather than a combination of look, feel, and function.

The coating that makes iPhones touch sensitive is running out — Tech News and Analysis

Wow, the stuff that makes touch screens responsive is a precious metal. Feels like something out of a sci-fi movie. Picture it with me - hardly dressed roughnecks battle it out in what remains of New York for the last bits of a precious metal used in the ruling class’ communication devices.
