Delightful profile of Jony Ive by Ian Parker for The New Yorker. A must-read.
John Gruber, in linking to the piece, describes it best:
Astonishing, unprecedented access to Ive personally and his design team at Apple. At nearly 17,000 words it’s closer to a book than an article, and not a single word is wasted. This is a resource we’ll refer to for decades to come.
