Apple’s designs are well regarded at the top of the tree, with the late Steve Jobs considered the messiah – but there was a time when the company was struggling to figure out who it was and needed outside help. Design firm Frog are credited with many of the earliest design prototypes for Apple products – and a new book from the founder of the company, Hartmut Esslinger, illustrates just where designs started from.

Tristan Rayner Editor

By Tristan Rayner in Video on Friday 28 March 2014

This could be our favourite moment in sweet, sweet karma – perhaps even of all time. The story is: A lady (who is filming the whole thing) is being tailgated by this guy, on a slippery wet road.
