Hey okay, so we’re a bit late to the Steve Jobs idolatry party. If you’re like us, know that Legend Toys is accepting pre-orders for an ultra-realistic Steve Jobs 12-inch action figure that will cost anywhere from US$180 to US$210. Even comes with a miniature leather sofa, an ‘apple’ (depending on which picture you look [...]
In 1976, the first Apple computer, the Apple 1 — jointly developed by Steve Wozniak, Steve Jobs, and Ron Wayne — started selling for $666.66 apiece. It was essentially a circuit board and had to be hooked up to a keyboard and monitor, plus connected to power supply. In 2012, one of these computers was [...]
Trust the Japanese to associate their love for Apple products with everything. As if Apple’s logo of an apple isn’t literal enough, a Japanese owner of an Fuji apple orchard found a way to get the apples to ripen with fruity tan-toos: plaster stickers of Apple’s logo and iPod on them so Pretty sweet fan gesture (just kind of bordering on obsessiveness).
If you’ve ever wanted to spend a cool $11,111 on a coffee machine and still have to push a plunger to get your damn coffee, you now can. Ex-NASA and Apple engineers, Jeremy Kuempel and Matt Walliser, along with designer Joey Roth, are behind this space age unit. The machine, dubbed Blossom One Limited, contains a computer that works to create a coffee specifically to the users’ liking. This includes: temperature, agitation, coffee to water ratio, and even how long the water is in contact with the coffee. Users are also able to scan QR codes and download brew recipes. Sounds pretty cool, but we think we’ll stick with our simple espresso machine.
Back in the day (1986, to be exact), Apple had its very own clothing line bursting with tees, tennis visors, trackie dacks, belts and hats adorning the funky-coloured, old school Granny Smith logo. Shock horror! As cool as being born or growing up in the 80s was, I can wholeheartedly say that I am glad these babies have ceased production. The very thought of Apple fanboys and fangirls rocking such apparel today is on par with the unfashionable heathens who think it’s socially acceptable to wear Crocs.
Diehard Mac fans can take their love to the next level. The scent of an Apple product being opened for the first time has been recreated by a group of Australian-based artists and a fragrance company called Air Aroma. Specifically, the scent recreates the smell of the plastic wrap covering the box, printed ink on [...]
This is how graphic designers celebrate Valentine’s Day: by doing up slightly cheesy love-inspired artwork, of course! I thought it’d be fun to share the love, if you know what I mean.
It is with sadness that we learn of Steve Jobs’ untimely passing. His legacy permeates modern society in many ways; and numerous friends and colleagues are leaving touching tributes. If you have fifteen minutes, watch Jobs’ address at a Stanford commencement ceremony for graduates. It’s simple, but simply inspirational.
Personally, I think the new AT&T logo sucks. In attempting to make it look 3-D, the designers have also made it look like a scoop of ice-cream, not exactly what I associate with cellphones. Neatorama recently posted a rundown of how a few other iconic logos evolved. [while we're on it, check out the Wolda [...]
