Magical


(pic from here.)

Apple have released a revolutionary new product.
It contains a microprocessor.
It can run one pre-approved application at the same time.
It lets you browse some of the web.
And it comes with the ability for you to send money to Apple right out of the box.

Jonathan Ive may be a genius, but isn't it a bit weird to make a video eulogising about your own product design as if it dropped from the sky? If I started doing that, I would be regarded as the biggest coq who ever lived.

"The thing about Cylob tracks is the way you have this incredible friction between the dissonant and the harmonius, and yet these seamless transitions from one section to the next. The way they are constructed is flawless. What you have in the end is something where the effect is just... magical."

I found the Apple conference stage thing kinda awkward, it's the first time Steve Jobs looked like he didn't want to sell it, understandable as I don't see an audience that would want it. He even tried to make spreadsheets look exciting...

Ventolin [Cylob Mix] was on tv again, Harry Hill danced to it.

Nope, it doesn't work. You need to 'dress up' as Steve Jobs, for starters...
