A great video where Jonathan Ive talks about design, and Apple products:

Some of the great quotes from Mr. Ive during the interview process:

A designer ... it's the way you look at the world ... you're constantly looking at something and thinking, "Why is it like that? Why is it like that, and not like this?"

This article contains a collection of quotes on design from Jonathan Ive (or "Jony Ive", as Steve Jobs called him), Apple designer.

For those who don't know of him, Mr. Ive is credited with designing almost every Apple product since 1997. Given that very long string of success, I became interested in what Mr. Ive has to say, and to that end, here's a collection of Jonathan Ive design interview quotes I've gathered over the last few years.

I don't consider myself an Apple fanboy -- I think whoever is designing Apple software these days is making things overly complicated (with OS X 10.7 and 10.8) -- but I am a *Jonathan Ive* fanboy. I have a great respect for the industrial design work he and his team do. It's safe to say that if I were in college these days I'd be studying industrial design instead of the aerospace engineering degree I got way back when.

Steve Jobs quotes: Like Steve Jobs or not, according to many of the quotes attributed to him, he has a way of cutting right to the point. There was definitely a time in my life that I would have loved working with him.

Earlier this morning I read on Daring Fireball that when he was shown an early Apple tablet prototype, he replied something like this:

I've been writing back and forth to a friend a lot lately, and we've been passing back and forth various famous quotes from history. I've been surprised at some of the quotes from Bill Cosby and Lucille Ball. I always thought of them as comedians, but they have some interesting things to say about life as well.

Here are a few quotes from Bill Cosby:

- How to log into an iPad by throwing an Android tablet onto it
- My Google Nexus 9 review (making the switch from iPad to Android)
- Java int, double, float, and mixed type division rules
- Calculating a cotangent equation in Scala
- A Pearson Correlation Score algorithm written in Scala
