Los Angeles normally hosts the last event on the annual auto show circuit. Lawmakers in the Golden State have gone to significant lengths to promote zero-emissions vehicles, so you’d think the event would focus solely on electric cars, but that’s never been entirely the case. While we saw some pretty cool EVs during the 2019 edition of the show, many of the headlining acts were mammoth SUVs with luxurious interiors and a huge amount of power. High-performance hot hatches were well represented, too, and Nissan dared to introduce an economy car in the City of Angels. Here are our highlights from the 2019 edition of the show. They’re the cars we’ll still be talking about at Thanksgiving, the ones we can’t wait to drive in 2020, and the concepts we’re hoping to see in showrooms sooner rather than later. 2021 Audi E-Tron Sportback Previous Next 1 of 10 Audi’s electric car offensive is in full swing.

Its 2016 revamp of the MacBook Pro is the epitome of the heights Apple was prepared to go to push its designs — no matter how flawed they were. For about four years, Apple lived in denial and kept releasing premium laptops with the same broken keyboard, which even a tiny speck of dust could bring to a halt despite hundreds of thousands of complaints from … [Read more...] about I’m looking forward to an Apple without Jony Ive
Jony Ive, Apple’s famed Chief Design Officer and resident design master since 1997, announced Thursday that he is leaving the company to form his own design company, LoveFrom. Apple will be LoveFrom’s first client, which makes sense because much of the company’s success can be directly traced back to Ive’s groundbreaking industrial designs that span a generation. When you think of Apple products — the iMac, iPod, iPhone, iPad, AirPods, and Apple Watch spring to mind — the guiding hand and conceptual mastermind behind them is Jonathan Ive alongside his long-term, tight design team. Here are some of the most famous designs to spring from his offices in Cupertino. Newton MessagePad Ive’s first job at Apple was to design the second generation of the Newton MessagePad. The first generation, which hadn’t been released at the time, had serious design flaws and issues that Ives had set out to fix, while struggling to determine out how this device … [Read more...] about All of the Apple products that made Jony Ive a living design legend
