Ha dimostrato il paradosso del gatto imburrato.

L'ora di Apple 13.04.10

Jon Manning rivela il segreto del perché, nelle foto ufficiali, l'orologio di iPhone mostra sempre le 9:41 e quello di iPad le 9:42.

Sono semplicemente gli orari previsti per la presentazione dei due dispositivi. Bastava domandarlo a Scott Forstal.

"We design the keynotes so that the big reveal of the product happens around 40 minutes into the presentation. When the big image of the product appears on screen, we want the time shown to be close to the actual time on the audience's watches. But we know we won't hit 40 minutes exactly."

"So you add a couple of minutes."

"Yeah! And for the iPhone, we made it 42 minutes. It turned out we were pretty accurate with that estimate, so for the iPad, we made it 41 minutes. And there you are - the secret of the magic time."

"So what you're saying is that you picked a number close enough to suit your needs, and used it in the keynote and all promotional images."

"Yep! It's as simple as that."
