I make no apologies for being a fan of Apple and the prospect of a new look and feel of the famed OS was, well, awesome. When the Jony Ive video started playing showing the new look of iOS I got butterflies and couldn’t wait to see what his team whipped up.

An infographic on Fast Co. Design has been generating a bit of buzz from us “marketing types”.

We’re all stupid until we die, but we do become a bit wiser over time. When we’re kids we touch the stove, get burnt and don’t touch it again (at least not on purpose). As we grow, we learn in hopes of being better* at our jobs/activities/life/relationships etc… and eventually con ourselves into thinking there […]
