The idea of Fortress Apple is dated and not a new phenomenon at all. To his surprise, Ive was still carrying the laptop bag. 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 iOs7.
