Get the picture? Computers should be more like sports cars and kitchen appliances. That’s Apple’s audience: high-end mainstream, the folks who buy — or aspire to buy — Porsches.

Magic doesn’t happen in an echo chamber.
Great read. It gives a fascinating glimpse of what goes on behind the scenes at Apple.
