Not an Apple Store

...when we strolled down a street a few blocks from our house a couple weeks ago, I was only sort of surprised to see this new place, one that any American of my generation can probably recognize instantaneously: It’s an Apple store! Or is it?
That's pretty good... they need to cram the store with fake hipsters to walk around to make it even more realistic.

iPhone SLR

Ever since the iPhone camera was invented, it's aspired to be what it simply never quite could be: a DSLR. Sure, apps have helped your camera phone inch forward with simulated focusing and faux filters.

Faux no more. The iPhone SLR Mount gives you the real thing. It'll set your phone photos apart from everyone else's on Instagram in an unprecedented way (#nofilter)!

This case-adapter combo lets you mount your Canon EOS or Nikon SLR lenses to your iPhone 4 giving your phone powerful depth of field and manual focus. [Link]
Really... isn't it just cheaper to rubber band your iPhone and your DSLR together back to back?

iPad Restaurant Menus

I wonder if the savings in staff time actually offsets the cost of the iPads or is it all gimmick? Seems like it would be more efficient to just to give waiters iPads.

A mobile computer that you can use on top of your lap? Why didn't someone think of this design earlier!?

iPad Scrabble

I actually find the game with the iPhones (using a 'tile app') really cool... although not cool enough to ditch the $10 old school Scrabble set.

iPhone 3G Earrings

Little iPhone G3 earrings, with all the details built in Fimo, including all of the 18 keys (it took about 20 hours, and the details are all there, crisp and just a little bit warped - a bit too tiny for my camera to capture).
I wonder what she charges for a the data plan...

The Evolution of Apple Design 1977 - 2008

Most have been notable leaps forward, while some were famous flops. Whether or not their inventions were accepted by the marketplace, Apple has consistently put out products that raise the bar for the computer and telecommunications industry.

The list compiled for this article is by no means a complete compilation of all Apple products. We chose to highlight those products where the design changes are best appreciated. [Link]
The iMac G4 is the coolest design of them all... too bad it had such crappy processing power.

MacBook Wheel

Hahahaha.... but sadly, my dad would probably type faster with that than with his two finger typing he does now.

Build Your Own Apple Store

If you want to re-model your home in the style of an Apple store, here are links to the suppliers of the actual items they use.

The designs of the Apple stores may not be particularly original in terms of architecture, however they break new boundaries in retail design with an attention to detail that is normally only found in major public buildings. The principal inspirations for Apple’s interiors range from Norman Foster’s Mediatheque in Nimes, with its central glass staircase and I.M. Pei’s entrance to the Louvre which is the inspiration for the fifth avenue store. Although the cube itself (particularly when it was shrouded in black) is more like the Kaab at Mecca, proving that Apple is a religion after all.

Many of the fittings they use, such as Erco lighting are used by people like Pei and Foster (where I used to work) and the exterior panels are made by the same firm that provided the panels for San Francisco’s greatest modern building - the De Young Museum....
Now if only someone would make a similar list for me to build a Starbucks.

Nike Meets iPod

"The new Nike+ Air Zoom Moire is the first footwear designed to talk to iPod. Nike plans to make many of its leading footwear styles Nike+ ready, connecting millions of consumers to the Nike + iPod experience. With the Nike+ footwear connected to iPod nano through the Nike + iPod Sport Kit, information on time, distance, calories burned and pace is stored on iPod and displayed on the screen; real-time audible feedback also is provided through headphones. The kit includes an in-shoe sensor and a receiver that attaches to iPod. A new Nike Sport Music section on the iTunes® Music Store and a new personal service site help maximize the Nike + iPod experience." [Link]
The price point on the kit itself isfairlyy good but then again, you have to buy the Air Zoom Moire shoe (which looks like it has some Nike Free engineering in it) and the Nano too if you don't already own one.

The iShirt

"The iShirt uses a patent-pending magnetic clasp system to make your iPod shuffle part of the t-shirt design. No modification is needed to your iPod shuffle. Simply place it over the clasp area of the shirt and it locks into place. The shuffle stays firmly attached even with vigorous activity. A quick pull easily removes it from the shirt." [Link]

Not a bad price considering that the Shuffle armband cost about as much.
