Why does it matter? We are a services company now. Havenít you been listening to the calls?

Appleís Chief Design Officer Jony Ive is leaving the company

Wow

It's not like he wasn't working with huge teams and that he hasn't shaped the culture there to a large extent that will stay after he's gone, but this is a big announcement.

Wow indeed. It will be very interesting to see how they do without him...

To be fair, Johny had already semi-retired a few years ago when design responsibilities fell more on others and he spent a lot of time focusing mostly on Apple Park, but it's still turning a page of Apple history.

Is Apple's design that hard to mimic going forward? I mean once the iconic style is established it shouldn't be that hard for others to carry on. At least styling wise. I don't really picture apple shifting their style to something else (in a dramatic sense) anytime in the near future.

Better late than never, I suppose (though hardware cycles are longer than people expect, not easy to turn on a dime...):
