USA All the Way – NYTimes Design Section

 
America has always had plenty of iconic design going on.  The chic StarTac, the swoopy Stingray ‘Vette, the coke bottle itself, … there’s plenty to see here in America.

We need a design policy to keep things going strong and on the right track

As part of my master’s degree, I think I’m going to be going more in this direction (from a persuasive technology and ecodesign standpoint) – but it’s exam week and discussion will wait until later.
 
As an aside, I do like the design of this retro-cool MP3 player from S. Korea: http://www.engadget.com/2009/12/05/mintpass-cube-mp3-player-features-plenty-of-style-few-capabilit/  but it fails on usability (portability unfriendly shape and poor interaction design).  Sorry, close doesn’t quite cut it.
