I think they look cool too, but I've heard that some models are lackluster.

Definitely a cool concept though.

The visual appeal from WP7 comes from the animations and fluidness of the UI, something you only experience in real life.

So, at least when it comes to pictures of the phones, I disagree with you.

Well to each their own I guess. I like the minimalistic interface of wp7 a lot, it's something that appeals to me.

While it doesn't look amazing in picture form, the remarkable thing about it is how comfortable it is to hold. It makes you forget you're holding a 4.65 inch screen phone.

Macbook Air


Incredibly revolutionary in it's design. Just beautiful.

Wacom Cintiq 21HD


I'm not sure if it's the design, or just that seeing it makes me instinctively drool, but I want it so bad.

Wii



I've always like the Wii's minimalistic design. Looks great in contrast to the other two behemoth consoles.

If we can step inside the world of software products, there's only one that's made me truly head over heels.



Aside from a few perplexing decisions, like the removal of the + sign on the new tab button, and the upcoming "uber" settings page, I feel every decision made when designing and making Chrome was the right one. And every decision since has only made it better. I really have to give a shout out to Chrome 6's interface tweaks that finally made the browser "grown up," sleek, and minimalistic.

Simple sync, never having to worry about updates (to the browser, or extensions), trying to make web apps at parity with smartphone apps, an entire OS devoted to the ideals of the cloud... I could go on and on, but if we're counting both hardware and software product designs, Chrome is the only one to steal my heart.

I just recently, finally, got the Zune HD. What an amazing device. The interface is by far the most intuitive on any device I've used. Within the first 20 minutes I felt like I had been using it for years. That Zune font is very elegant. Animations are smooth and I love the way artist images are pulled up and used as background images. Really nice touch. The hardware itself is much smaller, thinner and lighter than I had anticipated. I also really like the shape of the hardware.

I fuckin love this thing.

I really wish MS hadn't given up on the Zune HD line so quickly. They really were great and have dramatically better sound than the ipod/iphone line.

Hopefully the fact that it even came out marks a start where more electronics developers shoot for Apple levels of design.

EDIT: The G4 cube looks sexy as hell but when it first came out I remember one of my father's clients complaining that all of the ports were on the bottom. It always struck me as an incredibly baffling decision from Apple. I do wish Apple would return to experimenting with desktop design like that: the current iMac lines look great of course, but they had some amazingly slick designs.

usually for these things, you are paying for form, not function. all design stores i've browsed have insanely priced stuff...but sometimes you find something that fits your aesthetic sensibility, is clever and functional...i love that.

There are plenty of "better" ipod contenders that have come and gone but their hold on the market and culture is way too strong. People just get ipods. It's the safe, no brainer choice. I chose Zune mainly because I can't stand iTunes. I've had every major Zune and love them all.

I'm not a huge fan of any particular car design - except for this. It's hard not to be:



Function over form for the most part, although this picture doesn't really do it justice with the lighting - I always get questions about it when I break it out during meetings.

Whoa. I thought my Chrome was just bugging out. That's really weird that they changed it. It definitely feels empty without it there for some reason.

I'd also highly recommend Emotional Design by Donald Norman even if it does get a bit weird towards the end. Its less about the specific processes of design and more about why design is important.

Agreed! This is an awesome thread and a good place to place one of my favorite quotes on design:

Dieter Ram’s Ten Principles of good design:
Good design is innovative.
Good design makes a product useful.
Good design is aesthetic.
Good design helps us to understand a product.
Good design is unobtrusive.
Good design is honest.
Good design is durable.
Good design is consequent to the last detail.
Good design is concerned with the environment.
Good design is as little design as possible.
