Comments on: Designing products that can still work if they’re broken http://designnotes.info/?p=1857 Testing & Sprinting Mon, 20 Feb 2017 09:49:00 +0000 hourly 1 https://wordpress.org/?v=4.7.7 By: nookaNOW http://designnotes.info/?p=1857&cpage=1#comment-99235 Thu, 20 Aug 2009 18:59:26 +0000 http://designnotes.info/?p=1857#comment-99235 i dunno michael…this seems like apple-bashing to me. there are tons of products you use everyday that if they break, they're broken. break a chair leg, your chair is useless. the compressor in your fridge dies – sure you can use it as a temporary coffin, but not as a refrigerator. the apple tablet will be designed to do what it will do the way it is designed. if screen death means it needs to go back to the shop to regain it's full use, then it is still functioning as designed. i'm sure they'll be one or 2 ways to get your data off in those situations.

The other really nice thing that Apple does with its products–-the iPhone in particular–is that they've designed in a little indicator light that will tip off potential repair-ers to the fact that the phone needs to be replaced, not fixed. I dunked mine in some water a while back, and though it still works, I like the subtle “screw you” that the light offers whenever I turn the phone on.
