Google Fantastic article by The Verge: "Something strange and remarkable started happening at Google immediately after Larry Page took full control as CEO in 2011: it started designing good-looking apps. [...] We went to Google looking for the person responsible for the new design direction, but the strange answer we got is that such a person doesn't exist. Instead, thanks to a vision laid out by a small team of Google designers, each product team is finding its way to a consistent and forward-looking design language thanks to a surprising process. They're talking to each other." I think Google's recent complete design transformation is one of the most remarkable shifts this industry has seen post-iPhone. I think the importance and possible ramifications of this shift are best captured by Tom Dale: Google is getting better at design faster than Apple is getting better at web services.

that line is stolen by Steve Jobs from the dutch king of british empire basicly. Where he claimed that for britain to be prosperous the Dutch need not to lose. And lo and behold, they got along mostly fine.

For reference i ment this bloke: "http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/William_III_of_England" I am bad at tranlating old timey dutch though as he spoke it.

I'm Dutch and I didn't, nor can I find that quote in the Wikipedia article or anywhere else.

Oh well.
