Rearranged apps to simulate the folders I’ll create in iOS4 tomorrow. Plugged in the iPhone to back it up, and look what I see. That’s a picture of an iPhone with iOS4 installed, even though it’s not yet available. Apple’s such a tease…
I cannot justify the $599 price tag for the Design Premium suite upgrade. I realize that every serious and rational designer on the planet charges enough for a single brochure design to nearly pay for the full $1,899 Suite, I choose to low-ball my competition by working day and night on a corporate logo for $100, and only charge roughly $200 for a brochure. How do you expect me to pay for this professional software?
A humorous post to start your Friday. A few commenters didn’t get it, but it’s funny stuff.

You could even listen halfheartedly as your lead designer attempts to explain MP3s to you in 1998 and then immediately fire him for losing sight of the project goal. At $29.99, this thing’s a bargain. No? Fine. $9.99.
Apple said it will be exercising its cash hoard to fund expanded facilities capable of mass cloning additional iterations of Steve Jobs, creating an army of intense, creative thinkers it plans to use in taking over the automotive industry, rebuilding America’s educational system, and designing new fonts.
I’m shocked to be linking to an April Fool’s piece. Like many, I find most of them try too hard, and miss the mark. But the above is clever, and a nice read. Besides, who doesn’t want new fonts?
