This is actually not wrong.  Immediately before he joined Apple, Jony Ive designed toilets, bidets, and sinks, doing work for a bathroom wares manufacturer, and its known it influenced the clean curved white design of first generation iPod.  He's just going back to his roots.

The Death of the Centrist Democrat
 One party is having problems infusing young blood into its membership that's for sure.

114th House:
Avg. Age Democrats: 62yrs
Avg. Age Republicans: 55yrs

114th Senate:
Avg Age Democrats: 64 yrs
Avg Age Republicans: 55 yrs

Presidential Candidates 2016
Avg Age Democrats: 69
Avg Age Republicans: 57

Funny thing about Presidential elections, it's when Blue State Republicans and Red State Democrats matter.  The total wipeout of party apparatus of Democrats in a majority of Red states is a real problem, and it bodes ill for their future Presidential bench with crossover appeal too.  National Elections are won at the center, which means that we get one milquetoast candidate after another that tends to outrage the vocal and shrill fringe of both parties.

Obama won on the strength of Howard Dean's 50 state strategy and his personal ability to turn out the black vote, the first Democrat to achieve 50% of the popular vote since Jimmy Carter (Gore and Clinton never managed this feat, while Nixon, Reagan, and both Bushes managed to do so).   With the complete detonation of centrist Democrats, It's questionable if this is repeatable for a good long while.  Presently, a majority of states don't have Democratic control in the house, senate, or state mansions, while the number of states with total Democratic control has been reduced to just 7, and most of those are such fiscal basket cases that a Presidential run is out of the question.   I don't have any idea where the Democrats are going to pull the next candidate that appeals to the middle.  In this election there's O'Malley, but he couldn't even win an election in his own home state.

The Obama Administration putting Howard Dean out to pasture after the 2008 election will probably go down as one of the all time great tactical errors.  The last eight years haven't been particularly kind to millennial outcomes, and for today's 18 year olds, 2008 is ancient history.  It's certainly a time where the up and coming generation is willing to entertain fresh ideas from a new generation of candidates.

Astronomers have partially solved an epic whodunit: what kills galaxies so that they can no longer produce new stars?

New research has revealed the opah, or moonfish, as the first fully warm-blooded fish that circulates heated blood throughout its body much like mammals and birds, giving it a competitive advantage in the cold ocean depths.

I guess the UK got its Dewey defeats Truman moment
David Cameron will use the Conservative Party’s first majority in the House of Commons for nearly 20 years to “deliver” on a radical agenda to cut welfare, shrink the size of the state and re-define Britain’s relationship with Europe.

Guess the opposing party took the polls too seriously and stayed home
