Re: What should Apple do with all that cash?

Initial thoughts: If I needed to justify to my shareholders, I would invest a little bit in a lot of projects across the board: furniture, appliances, electronics. Apple would only need to hit on a couple to have a great ROI. If I felt like I had an almost unlimited amount of goodwill with my share...

Re: Kickstarter Coffeemaker

ever pick up a lukewarm Starbucks and try to drink it? Here in southern California every Starbucks is kept at a chilly -89.2 °C, so every Starbucks cup is already lukewarmed for your convenience. Also this is relevant: CoffeeisRelative.PNG Being a fully committed coffee snob requires good time mana...

Re: Kickstarter Coffeemaker

Ugh, agreed. I think pretty much all of those things are terrible and only use for carination. At the end of the day , I just really don't like to make coffee myself. I much rather just go to the coffee shop and get a good coffee. I'm not a pour over guy personally, I prefer an americano. That's a ...

Re: Kickstarter Coffeemaker

Modern Man, who begins every morning by grinding, dosing, tamping and pulling his own espresso shot does not see how this concept actually works. He hardly knows where to even begin with regard to explaining everything that looks wrong about it from a practical industrial design standpoint... let's ...

Re: Desk Lighting for Creative Industries

Interesting project, you might want to post in the Projects forum and share the development with us! If I can share my biggest grippe with desk lamps, it's the size of the light. Most desk lamps aren't diffused and cast a very harsh light that creates sharp shadows. The sharp shadows make it hard t...

Re: This must be the most underrated inspiration website.

hmmm, just noticed this is Maxime's own website. Kind of weird Maxime to call your own blog the most underrated site don't you think? Modern Man wasn't aware design blogs had a rating system. Now that he knows, Modern Man is prepared to bet his own design website is far more underrated and for that...
