Apple - the trend-setter

We all know that Apple has great style, just look at Mac OS X for proof, but are they the industry standard for design nowadays? When Apple unveiled Coverflow the world gasped - and we can see why, one of the coolest things since free delivery for pizza! Just months after its introduction, multiple companies followed suite, and created a multitude of Coverflow-style apps. The web found itself revealing in them all, and now even software for Windows offers the feature.

So is it this, the trend-setting aspect of Apple, that keeps them on their toes? For avid fans such as myself I won't ever forget who came up with the design first, but those for those out there who don't know anything about it, they may be forgiven for not even knowing the word 'Coverflow', but who can easily recognise the loveliness of that new web-app of theirs that uses the same design.

Personally I really do think that it is this that forces them to change first in the ever-changing industry. And who can blame them, if your design had spread, wouldn't you want a new one? I belive that it is an important lesson for us all. If you want to get noticed, then be different, and kepp changing - no one likes to wear the same jumper everyday!
