iMessages from Albert

You don’t believe that Albert used an iPhone?

Well, here is the proof, some iMessages written by himself.

About product philosophy

“Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius – and a lot of courage – to move in the opposite direction.”

About iOS

“Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler.”

About innovation

“The secret to creativity is knowing how to hide your sources.”

About SEC filings

“Not everything that counts can be counted, and not everything that can be counted counts.”

The Apple Logo and the Golden Ratio

7 01 2019

Apple is well-known for its love of the so-called golden ratio, an ‘extreme and mean’ mathematical ratio that designers as far back as the third-century B.C. had identified as most likely to lead to harmonious design. The iCloud logo, for example, is designed with the golden ratio in mind and it’s widely believed that the iconic Apple logo is also designed using the golden ratio.

It’s a nice thought, isn’t it?

That Appleís logo is constructed out of mathematically perfect circles and partial circles? Unfortunately, not only is it not true, but Apple has different logos it uses even in its own official materials: the Apple icon etched into the back of your iPad is very different than, say, the official Unicode symbol.

You might know that the commercial version of Google+ will be discontinued in 2019. So I created the community ‘Apple iThings’ on MeWe, the social network for lots of Google+ refugees.

I used the Apple logo for this newly created group inspired by the golden ratio just because it represents the design capabilities of the company in a nice way.

An alternate understanding of the term “Diversity”

Apple is starting to send unwanted push notifications to iPhone users, including ones designed to promote its own Carpool Karaoke show – even though Apple’s TV app never expressly asks for permission to send promotional notifications, and even though Apple’s App Store guidelines forbid developers from sending unsolicited promos. Not valid for Apple.

SPAM is defined as

irrelevant, inappropriate, off-topic, or unsolicited messages (usually commercial) sent on the internet to a large number of recipients. Even content of high quality CAN be spam if it’s forwarded to a huge number of people via different channels.

Hey Apple, you’re spamming.

Others do it also and many of them do it a very long time. But we all like Apple for not sending unsolicited advertisements,

So please stop it.
