Reminder: Apple's Design Approach

This article is more of a 'reinforcing' than a 'groundbreaking one', but a good read. Basically, the argument is that Apple's design process succeeds because there a small number of empowered people making design decisions, rather than large committees, they question the constraints in which they're placed, and that Apple designs are good at leaving "frills" out in search of a streamlined design.

All true, IMO, and nothing really surprising, but you see the alternatives so often that everyone needs a reminder of this, now and again. These lessons are equally true in software.
