And I am not alone to see the references. Seems like making the 'Apple looks' the look of the future will soon be so assumed that we will not think about it, just assume it. Rather clever I say.
Though the computers in Iron Man (Dell) were great, the screens, the holograms, etc., they were still just LCD screens eventually, that too set in an indeterminate time (not too future, not too present). Nothing beats the 'look of the future' like the way WallE managed to potray, and with the glossy white and bright blue of trademark Apple.
We already see the changes. A new computer by Sony or even the eeePC designs, at some level look like iMacs and Macbooks. OK, I love the apple designs. However, subliminally putting the thought that that is the design of the future is a little too clever for my liking.
But then, since there is no one else to fill the boots (to show a satisfactory look of future tech machines), Steve is there. And how.
