...for the same reason why some people would drop a couple hundred thousand on a new Italian sports car. Because it appeals to them. I've always considered myself a more "function before form" designer, and while I have enjoyed many Apple products in the past, today's Apple has become a slave to the form and not the function.

I've followed Jony Ive since he began his tenure at Apple, and actually met him a couple times, and while the conversations were brief, you could see the wheels turning with ideas. But he is like all of us creatives...many great and wonderful ideas, but they each need a champion other than the originator. Call it lack of ambition or zeal or even the inability to see the good ideas because all the details get in the way.

But in Steve Jobs, Jony found a great champion willing to tilt at windmills to see his best ideas make it through to reality. And while Steve was a bit of a jerk (well, rather a lot, actually) to some, he always got results. And he had enough charisma to bend the world to fit his view.
