This wasn't Grignon's typical route to work. He was a senior engineer at Apple in Cupertino, the town just west of Campbell. His morning drive typically covered seven miles and took exactly 15 minutes. But today was different. He was going to watch his boss, Steve Jobs, make history at the Macworld trade show in San Francisco. Apple fans had for years begged Jobs to put a cellphone inside their iPods so they could stop carrying two devices in their pockets. Jobs was about to fulfill that wish. Grignon and some colleagues would spend the night at a nearby hotel, and around 10 a.m. the following day they - along with the rest of the world - would watch Jobs unveil the first iPhone.

Design is more than just pretty case and how something looks from the outside. Personally I do not find Apple products attractive at all.

Steve Jobs did not change a thing and there are many companies besides Apple that have contributed lot more to get us to where we are now. For example I would rate Digital lot higher than Apple in every possible way when you put all the achievements in real perspective.
