"Not many people understand about tolerance, for example. What it means. The kinds of tolerances; or the gaps, in other words. When you compare that to another product, for me it is a world of difference. It's kind of like comparing a Skoda to a Rolls Royce. Maybe that's not a good example. But, you know, to a very cheap car.""Any designer cannot but respect what Apple has done, and the influence they have had on our lives."Earlier, in the on stage discussion, Newson alluded to his support for Apple in their copyright battles with Samsung, having faced his own battles to stop others copying his work.
When asked whether Apple was a company resurrected through design, Newson had no hesitation, "Completely, 100 per cent, That is, ultimately, kind of the power of design, The proof is there, It goes beyond design; of course, user interface, software and things like that, But certainly, design has played a big part in the reinvention of that brand, And it is now far and away the most valuable company in the world, Like an order of magnitude, And it's extraordinary, That's design."Iconic grrrl iphone case Australian designer Marc Newson told CNET that when it comes to the iPhone, designers understand the difference immediately, while "Mr and Mrs Average" don't..
In conversation at the Art Gallery of New South Wales today, iconic Australian designer Marc Newson told CNET that when it comes to the iPhone, designers understand the difference immediately, while "Mr and Mrs Average" don't. Marc Newson is one of Australia's leading industrial designers, shooting to fame in 1986 with his Lockheed Lounge and Embryo Chair "biomorphic" designs. One of the three Lockheed Lounge chairs set a first for industrial design when it auctioned for over £1,000,000 in 2009. He was awarded the honour of Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE) in the 2012 New Years Honours for services to design.
This test took place this morning in San Francisco, which has some testing implications to take into account, First, there are multiple routes through the gridlike and steep SF streets; second, there are plenty of one-ways to really put the rerouting features through the wringer; and third, it is close to both Apple and Google (so it's probably covered better than most locations) and also it's one of the most Internet connected places in the United States, The grrrl iphone case journey beginsFor our first test we went to a general area rather than an address, The theory was that we already know Google can find general locations like Golden Gate Park or Fisherman's Wharf, but we really wanted to know how Apple Maps would perform..
Our target? Crissy Field, which sits right on the bay with a perfect view of the Golden Gate Bridge. To get there we would have to cross San Francisco's main drag, Market Street, navigate the busy streets of downtown, then wind through the Marina neighborhood to our destination. When we first entered our destination, we noticed that the two apps chose different primary routes, both of which were valid and probably wouldn't change the distance to our destination by very much. So, while the routing algorithms immediately disagreed, we didn't see either one as being better than the other.
