Link: Reflection ☍

Shared on December 13, 2012

Patrick Rhone on Minimal Mac wants you to take a moment and really think about your devices:

If it is a touch enabled device, you likely also notice your fingerprints and smudges. Remnants of your presence. These are a reflection of a different sort. Yet a reflection in, perhaps, a more personal and telling way. A knowing eye could likely deduce from those smudges and marks if you turn it on frequently or use one app more than another. There’s traces of you in there.

For some reason, I immediately thought of Jony Ive’s words during the iPhone 5 introduction video:

When you think about your iPhone, it’s probably the object that you use most in your life. It’s the product that you have with you all the time.
