Haunted Empire, book review: Ive is far from unique as a designer who is synonymous with his company.

As a prominent writer on Apple- and Mac-related topics, Kahney was once theorized incorrectly to be the identity of Fake Steve Jobs.

This is supposed to be the book that flips that formula and focuses on Ivd, with Apple as an interesting part of the larger picture.

Jony Ive was the mastermind behind the whole Apple product line revival ,with the love for minute details, down to stuff most people wouldn’t notice. Markets Show more Markets links. Ive, in spite of his shaven head and fierce non-disclosure, is not quite the charismatic high priest that Jobs once was.

In reality, they two wouldn’t have seen each other eye to eye, but after his death, that guy suddenly becomes his all in all.

Interessante o livro mostra em determinados momentos um lado pouco conhecido do Sir Ive. Most design students had lots of ego and very little talent. I approached this book with an open mind – could Leander Kahney have persuaded the famously private Jony Ive to speak?

Despite that some of the stories are well explored – the use of ONLY polished aluminium screws on a casing, the culturally inclusive design process, the many prototypes of the iPhone home button, the relationship of the Helvetica Nueu font with retina display and the move away from skeumorphism in jonny.

This is similarly true of Ive’s nuclear family – what are they like, what are his interactions with them like, and how are they influencing one another throughout their lives?

Kahney didn’t suck up to Jobs and his followers, instead he had the guts to reveal the true reformer who was not out there to be seen in leanxer public. Also, the book mostly covered about Apple, as the company played a major role in his life.
