In the News "Ferdinand A. Porsche, who designed the original Porsche 911, the snazzy, powerful sports car that became the lasting signature of the German automobile company founded by his grandfather and later run by his father, died on Thursday in Salzburg, Austria. He was 76." I believe only Italians can design beautiful cars (I mean, game over, kids), but there's no denying that the 911 is a true icon. Cars technically don't have a place on OSNews, but Ferdinand Porsche's passing cannot go by unmentioned.

Well, he did design a couple of hard-drive enclosures for LaCie...

and the Blackberry P9981.

Without industrial designers like F. A. Porsche (among other things) we would not have all these hordes of worshippers of the Cult of the forbidden fruit :-P
