        Down history lane :

        ..On Sunday, January 7, 2007, Bill Gates gave the keynote address at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. Hammering home Microsoft’s buzz phrase ‘Digital Decade,’ he talked about how great hardware wasn’t enough, that we needed connected experiences. “Where people are being productive, doing new creative things, where they’re mobile… that is the key element that is missing.”

        He said that “Vista and the PC continue to have the central role,” though he also claimed that Windows Vista was “the highest quality release that we’ve ever done.”…(in 2004 memo Microsoft’s Jim Allchin wrote : “Longhorn [codename for Vista] is a pig and I don’t see any solution to this problem.”)

        Two days later and around 400 miles away, Steve Jobs introduced the very device, the very experience that Gates said was missing. He introduced the iPhone at Macworld San Francisco…

        At the same Macworld Jobs announced that Apple has completed the transition from PowerPC to Intel : “we did it in seven months.”.

        As some have said to me lately… 14 years and the icons haven’t changed a bit.

        No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created Pebcak

        iOS 14 let you create/design your own icons.
