Yesterday Apple announced Jony Ive is leaving to form his own company. John Gruber’s take is excellent. This is the kind of subject that John just nails. The only thing I’d add is the same advice I tell everyone when a perceived “irreplaceable” person leaves a job. Everyone is replaceable. The big question is whether Apple still considers design with the same priority it did before. It’s arguable that ship sailed when Steve Jobs died. Either way, the sky isn’t falling.
