Jony Ive: The Genius Behind Apple's Greatest Products
“An adulating biography of Apple’s left-brained wunderkind, whose work continues to revolutionize modern technology.” —Kirkus Reviews
In 1997, Steve Jobs discovered a scruffy British designer toiling away at Apple’s headquarters, surrounded by hundreds of sketches and prototypes. Jony Ive’s collaboration with Jobs would produce some of the world’s most iconic technology products, including the iMac, iPod, iPad, and iPhone. Ive’s work helped reverse Apple’s long decline, overturned entire industries, and created a huge global fan base. Yet little is known about the shy, soft-spoken whiz whom Jobs referred to as his “spiritual partner.”

I wouldn't let this guy organize my desk. He has been behind some of the stupidest decisions I've seen come out of apple. Starting with a totally round mouse - one that you have to grab and move to figure out what direction it's facing. How about removing the optical drive from the iMac? How about putting the MMC media card slot on the *BACK* of the machine? He's a nut-job with a severe case of OCD, that believes not only in "form-over-function", but "form-at-any-cost-regardless-of-function". Apple used to have standards about the way things worked together. There was coherency in the designs, the commands, the user interfaces, etc... This guys has gone off the rails, and should have been the first guy replaced after Jobs stepped down.
