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!

User control and freedom

Users often choose system functions by mistake and will need a clearly marked “emergency exit” to leave the unwanted state without having to go through an extended dialogue. Support undo and redo.

Users should not have to wonder whether different words, situations, or actions mean the same thing. Follow platform conventions.
