Mix: Apple.com, Keynote, Hockney, South Africa

Following yesterday’s Keynote address at WWDC, Apple unveiled a newley redesigned, simplified Apple.com. The new site trims the main navigation options to six: “Store,” “Mac,” “iPod+iTunes,” “iPhone,” “Downloads,” and “Support.”

Apple has posted the complete video of Steve Jobs’ Keynote from WWDC 2007 online.

British artist David Hockney commented that the iPod age is creating people who use their ears more than their eyes. “I think we’re not in a very visual age. You notice that on the buses. People plug in their ears and don’t look much.” He also stated that it was “producing badly dressed people.”

A clever iPod advertising campaign staged in South African movie theaters featured miniature boxes of popcorn with the slogan “iPod: Movies in your pocket,” as well as tiny movie posters. [via TUAW]

Re: the advertising campaign in South African Theaters.

All very creative….but perhaps they should focus their efforts on bringing an Itunes Music store to South Africa!!!! Apple are more than happy to sell their hardware here but dont provide the support they do in other markets???

David Hockney - what a #####.  Should’ve kept his mouth shut so we didn’t know

The state of modern art these days it’s little wonder people prefer to avert their eyes.

”...but photography could be deceptive and was no good for landscape anyway…”
I have seen some excellent panoramic landscapes using photography.

And Hockney has such great taste in clothes….

Let’s see, David Hockney has a wrinkled polo shirt with a disheveled collar, and one of the sides of the collar is sitting ABOVE his suit coat.

Badly dressed? Speak for yourself.

Apple should do more to fight HIV and poverty in S. Africa before they try to sell more iPods.  Many people can not afford an iPod and if they can may not live long enough to fill it with music.  Perhaps, the U.S. “iPod wedding” trend will translate to an “iPod funeral” in S. Africa.
