      1. Though they did hit a home run in nearly every way with the Intellimouse. I happily used one of those for 10+ years until switching to the Magic Mouse.

  1. Yes pretty much what I predicted earlier on the other related thread… or would have done if MDN hadnt insisted on me signing in to a forum I was already signed in to. Just didnt make sense as it was presented while all the misinformation to see the real truth was actually encapsulated within that article.

  2. Several hours before this denial was made, I posted on the first thread that when Apple employs one of the best designers in the world, it’s hard to imagine why they might want the services of an outside designer.

    This story never made sense to me.

  3. Starck hasn’t produced anything revolutionary for years. He’s not even in the same league as Sir Jony Ive, who I’m sure wouldn’t let Starck anywhere near his workshop!
