Graphic Design for the iPad and iPhone – Reimagined!


Taking The iPad Back to 1984, With a Classic Calculator

Is there something cooler than Apple in his glory days of rebellion back in the '80s? Is there even someone cooler than Steve Jobs back when he was 30? I have the answer, maybe: what about taking today's technology back to those days? Like, an iPad with a classic 1984 calculator?

I'm telling you, this thing is completely unnecessary, and if you look closer - it's awful. But for the Apple Vs Big Brother geek in you, it's an awesome calculator that puts the Mac OS' classic graphic style on the iPad, for $0.99 in the App Store.

And bought.
