A Reading of 'The Shape of Things to Come'.
In this special episode we have a reading of the recent New Yorker article by Ian Parker. The article is about Apple with the focus on Apple’s Sir Jonathan Ive. It's superbly written and I mentioned it earlier last week with quoting some choice sentences. The quality of this article is head over heels more insightful than the Walter Isaacson book from a few years back. This article is the only New Yorker article I've ever finish from first word to last and it gives the reader a huge look behind Apple's motivations towards their products and personal motivations.
The idea to record an audio version was given to me by Mike Hurley of Relay.fm fame. So if people find the 17,000 word article too long to read, now you can listen with the variable speed from whatever your podcast app of choice may be.
