Sir Jonathan Ive's acknowledgement of Dieter Rams as an inspiration has been mentioned here before

There was a fantastic article on gizmodo which seems to have disappeared comparing the works of Jonathon Ive of Apple to Dieter Rams of Braun, the style and philosophy is increadibly similar. Ive is said to be a huge Rams fan.

That's one of the fascinating things about design.  Not only how it is created but how it evolves.

The link that Paul was not allowed to post under old house rules last year...

Yes I am.  Drinking at stadium gigs is a bit inconvenient (the bar's too far away and the queues are too long) so no hangover this morning.  My back is killing me though, I'm too old to do Pitch Standing.  I was also told by somebody next to me that I was 'too straight to be there', which is another story (and quite possibly the first time that accusation's been levelled at me, to be fair).
