Re: Jonathan Ive & the 510.503

: Well Chuck, here is the evidence, an Apple
: Powermac G5, and some Heuer watch.

: You just have to conclude that Jonathan Ive
: (the Apple (& ipod) designer, for the
: uninitiated) was inspired by the 510.503.

Either that or Jobs is too cheap to spring for anodizing the case! Either is a possibility!

: Though the front grille is clearly also
: inspired by the perforated straps of the
: Carrera era.

It's a bit of a reach, but it's a good reach!
