For Apple, It’s Dieter Rams All Over Again

If you’re still on the fence about purchasing your shiny new MacBook Air Jordan (announced this morning), but you’re worried it might go out of style in a few years, might we point to how well this Braun cassette player has held up over the years. Don’t worry, we’ll explain.

To commemorate the opening day of MacWorld, Gizmodo has put together an amazing product-by-product comparison between Apple’s design and the products designed for Braun in the 60s. In other words, it’s a Dieter Rams vs. Jonathan Ive smackdown. Some of the similarities are rather eerie, especially that pocket radio. Gizmodo also compiles a beautiful gallery of other non-Apple implemented Braun designs, and we’re so looking forward to the day when Apple makes the iLighter. Thanks to VLU for the tip.

Apple stores on the East Coast are now closing to prepare for the evening’s push and suddenly the time between now and 6pm starts to feel like an eternity. So we turn to the two redheaded stepchildren of tech coverage, Engadget and Gizmodo for some full frontal iPhone release day porn.

Engadget’s got running multi-city tabs on the lines and tells us that even the mayor of Philadelphia has queued up. Meredith Vieira can’t figure it out (no surprise there) and Newsweek’s Steven Levy was almost relieved of his review phone on live TV. Gizmodo has a iPhone line photo gallery with shots from Santa Monica to Clarendon, Virginia and every sleepy hamlet with an AT&T store in between. And they also have another feature very near and dear to our sweaty hearts, a Greg the First iPhone Camper Photoshop contest, and this one has got to be our favorite.
