new old iMac 2015


So this got me for a second when I saw it, they’ve launched a new iMac I thought, wow, it’s radically different I thought, oh, no, wait…

But no, sadly, they’ve not massively updated the iMac, it’s those clever Germans over at Curved Labs creating a design concept. Mashing together the very first Mac design, with new features such as the aluminium, flatness (that a word?) and minimal design of more recent Apple products. (more…)

apple logo origins

There are a fair few theories and stories surrounding why a symbol of a bitten apple was used for the Apple logo design.

Does this mean the Death of Business Card Design?

By Gareth Coxon, October 16, 2008

Nameo remember that name, because is going to KILL the beloved business card, that opportunity to create a visual and real (in your hand) impact to your business contact, will be gone forever!

Ok its not quite that dramatic!

There is a new Apple iPhone Application called Nameo, Nameo is a virtual business card exchanger for the iPhone. Basically you hold your iphones together press a button and you have exchanged your details.

Only iPhones that both have Nameo can exchange details.

Ok, so initially I thought what a great idea, then I realised that its going to take away the livelihood of the business card! The business card is going to be jobless!

I personally think we will always need the impact that a well designed and printed business card gives.

But what do you think, is this the death of the beloved business card?

Is it really a threat or will this be like the “paperless office” we are all supposed to have!
