In search for a Super Consumer

What was once called the “Information Superhighway” has become “Information Wasteland”.

Oh my, what’s up at Apple…

I really couldn’t care less about the fact that the new iPhone that Apple introduced three months late wasn’t an iPhone5. However, as a web designer, I do seem to notice somethings more than others.

The new iPhone 4, like generations before it, is a beautifully styled object. It appears cunningly simple at first but the amount of attention given to detail and design of each piece that make up the exterior is truly admirable.

Childhood hero for the new generation

The Telegraph ran an article titled “Steve Jobs is entrepreneur teenagers most admire..” Um, maybe because Jobs is the only entrepreneur most teenagers ever heard of? Mind you, the result is the poll of 1,000 12 to 17 year-olds. Hahaha! Not really sure what all this means, it just made me chuckle.
