Marc Newson has joined Apple's Design team

Does this mean our beloved K-01 has appreciated in value?

No, it means that the next gen Mac Mini is going to be clad in yellow ribbed rubber.

This can mean only one thing.

Look for the FF sensor Apple-Pentax iK-S01, coming soon to an Apple store near you.

I hope it's a multi year contract to reduce the risk of him designing the shell of another Pentax

Good move by Apple, I think. Their design has become rather stale in the last 5 years. Every laptop they make is a variation of the MacBook air they came out with at the beginning of 2008. I miss the Apple that came out with bold designs like the iLamp and the G4 Cube. Marc Newson is certainly more flamboyant, but they could use that kind of influence.

By the way, I read that Newson will continue to work on non-Apple projects, so if we all wish really hard, perhaps he will do another Pentax!

Marc will kill the rest of the useability that jony ive left over, i'm sure. But at least the boxes will look like a designer door stop...

Oh dear... it's bad enough he has to work for Apple, let alone doing other stuff too.

So Marc stole the design of a Mac Pro and turned it into a beer machine.
