MacDailyNews Take: But according to wearable dog dish maker Huawei, Jony Ive’s Apple Watch design is “clumsy.” Whom to believe?


    1. Crabapple’s unsolicited judgement is that the dog dish maker’s observation is correct. Mr. Ive is clumsy!
      When Hauwei designers tossed their latest creation to Mr. Ive to examine, seeing what was flying towards him for what it was did not even attempt to catch it in order to take a closer look at it.
      The Hauwei collective had thought that Mr. Ive would have instinctively caught it and then they would have made some form of claim had he done so. Mr. Ive’s acute sense of design detected flying shit hence the lack of a reaction to the, ‘whatever it was’ flying towards him.

  1. I thought I was going to be one of those people who was going to hold out until Apple Watch 2, because I don’t really need the Apple Watch, having every other Apple Device, but when it really comes down to it, resistance is futile.
