With all the recent hype about Apple’s forthcoming products, I thought I’d post some pre-Ive-era throwbacks. These were posted as "The Origins of the iPhone" at Via FFFOUND

does anyone else see the black ‘painting’ in the background of the first image (the notebook)?

I wonder if it’s just artifacts from an old photo or some CIA type redaction…

The second picture is revolutionary(or should be).
Using Colours on computer cases instead of the steril gray(or b&w).
Computers could be part of the interior. that would be sweet:)

I worked at frogdesign for 7 years, and there was a huge file cabinet filled with slides of models just like these. Literally hundreds of visionary ideas that were impossible to implement at the time. frog was paid a monthly retainer just to come up with cool stuff until Steve got booted. Whenever we thought we had a revolutionary idea, Hartmut would go and dig in that cabinet and pull out something very similar done 5-6 years earlier. Apple’s culture of design excellence was nurtured there.
