About the David Pogue icon for Mac OS X
For example, many users instinctively put David's head on their desktop and marvel at its entertainment value, but you can also use the head icon as an icon for folders. Drag files onto it, and it looks like hes absorbing the information!
Here is some of the buzz about the David Pogue Icon Collection...
|Some background about the development of the new David Pogue Icon Collection:
There comes a time in every important Joy of Tech project, usually when the thing appears to be finished, that one of the creative team sends it back to the drawing board and asks that it be completely redone. Some people say this trait is pathological, a sign of control-freak perfectionism. We agree.
Says Nitrozac, "When Snaggy presented me with the first plastic model of what was to be the new David Pogue icon, it looked like the old Pogue on a no-carb diet, a leaner Pogue in the X-Zone. "There was nothing wrong with it," recalls Nitrozac. "It was fine. Really, it was fine." She hated it.
This might have irritated some Snaggys. But Snaggy synchs with Nitro, readily playing Darth Vader to her Emperor. He had good working models of the new designs within a day, and had also searched Google for more icon shareware. But engineering the iconssqueezing all that Pogue spirit into the little pixels that Nitrozac dreamed about took nearly six months. Yes, they had a lot of other stuff to do.
But finally, inspired by the release of Pogue's new book OS X The Missing Manual, the new icon collection has been released, and it is a stunning ensemble. These new icons, the long-awaited successors to the most downloaded, all-in-one David Pogue icon ever, signal that the Pogue icon is back and badder than ever. These new David Pogue icons, Nitrozac says, "are the best David Pogue icons we've ever done."
Nitrozac and Snaggy are betting that what Mac users most want from technology is control of their digital lives. And what better way to do that than with the smartest-looking, easiest-to-use, best-engineered David Pogue icons there are!
