Ever wonder what the green&slimy guys get as Xmas presents?

Did you ever wonder what we at the green&slimy office get as xmas gifts? If you have thought we have everything Apple related around here, you are wrong. This time it was a really great present i wanna show to all of you.
I got an "iBlanket" done by my girlfriend all by herself. Isn´t that amazing. Now i can sleep all night long knowing apple is with me;) She said she worked hard to get it done in 6 months;) Now isn´t that cool. Check out the photo attached below:)

PS: The cool iOS Appicon magnets where just a little bonus on that:)

Wish all of you happy Xmas;) Cheers dietmar

Thoughts prototypes based on my apple resume token for the ipad???

I just looked back at some emails to steve i sent in the year 2006 i think.
After that i got an email back grom steve and from the apple staffing section, where they asked me for a resume and worksamples. I sent them to apple.

Have a look at the email i sent to apple in 2006:

Now guess what i see, the ipads ebook reader interface (when you open up the book) looks exactly like the one i sent apple in 2006. This resume was a prototype which Thoughts is based on.

Have a look at this side by side screenshot:

I know that this is some kind of often used metaphor, and maybe these are just little details, but i thought it would be interesting to mention it and see what you think of it. As Andreas (the coding guy behind green&slimy) mentioned, as this is just a visualization of a real book, there woudln´t be that much possibilities of doing this. It just hit me when i first saw the ebook reader and let me think on thoughts:) So no offence on this:)

If Apple was inspired by prototypes of thoughts or not, i like the ebook reader interface, and i have highest respect of all the work gone into the iPad User interface design and workflow thinkings;)
