Steve Jobs’s Pursuit Of Perfection—and The Consequences

Evgeny Morozov examines the intense pursuit of design by Apple’s Steve Jobs and Jony Ive. But it’s not all that positive, particularly when looking at Apple’s impact on the world and the Internet. Needless to say, I don’t agree with the author’s premise.

I don’t believe that Apple, or any other single entity can “destroy the Internet”. No institution has the innate right to exist beyond the point of usefulness. But the Internet has resisted a number of efforts to destroy it and I think it will continue to do so, regardless of what Apple (or anyone else) does.
