@ Apple Man: Apple lets me think about "creation" and the slogan "Think different, make different". Jonathan Ive is really a great creator. Hope u have a nice time.

Apple Man, it is so interesting to read that you wrote down in your comment. I think eating apples every day is the another way to healthy life. And design of iPod is really nice. I respect J. Ive for this work.

About the women football... I don't watch to it because I can't stand any kind of football, even though I'm brazilian.
Thanks guys for your help.

Jonathan Ive was the man who designed the iMac and the iPod. Both designs are beautiful. In my opinion, they are the best because they have a classic style.
Fortune magazine named Jonathan Ive as the "world's smartest designer" in 2010, for his work on Apple products.
Jonathan has over 300 granted design patents to his name.
My username "Apple Man" isn't any influence of the third elementary podcast, section 2. However, the main reason for this username is the fact that the apple is my favourite fruit.
Every day I eat one or more apples.

So funny. I didn't think your username was because of the third podcast... But I thought It was owing to iPod.
