This week, Jon and Chris talk about the recent keynote from Apple. The show starts with a quick product review of all the different product announcements made by Tim Cook & co. Then in the second half, they get into a discussion about what’s happened with Apple over the past 10 years, and why they may no longer be the center of innovation in the post-Jobs era. Stay tuned for a different kind of Design Review episode!

Also… Here is Steve Jobs’ legendary keynote when he introduced the very first iPhone:

Please forgive the popup ads. It’s YouTube, not us… It’s still worth your time to watch it. So please do!

Also, Jon mentioned on the show that he keeps a spreadsheet of iOS gestures, just to keep track of the different multitouch interactions that people need to know and remember to use their phones. Let him know what you think!

Simply put, politeness is required for better experiences with software. We enter a relationship with the products and services that we use, and if that relationship is not good, negative, or rude, we just won’t keep it around.

This week, Chris & Jon discuss the differences between polite and impolite software, and how it affects the user experience! Believe it or not, politeness matters, so stick around and listen!
