From 2001 to about 2010 we were spoiled with revolutionary Apple products: The iPod, the iPhone, the iPad. All were category-busters, game-changers. In the years since, nothing (in my opinion) as impactful has emerged from Cupertino. But, as their product line-up matures, it's nice to see they've still got

For jaded designers and/or consumers, it's tough to get excited over Google's new products, as they're all derivative of existing offerings. There are some incremental improvements: The Pixel phone can reportedly gain 7 hours worth of battery life off of a measly 15-minute charge, for instance. But taking a close
There was a lot of talk in the '80s and '90s about the paperless office. As personal computers began to proliferate, we were told, paper would go away. We now know the opposite happened, and that we use more paper than ever. Similarly, in design schools of the '90s, one
