What does Apple’s Calendar app and this building have in common?
There’s been a lot of hullyboo about skeuomorphism in the Mac and iOS community right now.

In China, the state-run press has been attacking Apple non-stop for the past couple of weeks over warranty policies that showed the company’s “unparalleled arrogance.” Apple Stores were fixing broken iPhone returns instead of replacing the devices entirely like they do in the United States. There was also an issue with Apple’sÂ 90-day warranty on replaced parts not matching China’s mandatory one-year warranty policy.
Things got so heated that Apple CEO Tim Cook [Read More...]

In this episode from back in 1985, the Computer Chronicles put the vintage Apple Macintosh — released just a year before — through its paces, including a talk with Larry Tesler, a legendary engineer who was part of the Xerox [Read More...]
