Disclaimer: I’ve said this many a time – I’m an Apple fanboy. Over the years, I’ve bought, in the following order, an iPod Touch, a Macbook Pro, an iPhone 4, an iPad 2 and an iPhone 5. My family has countless more Apple devices.
When the first iPhone launched way back in 2007, not only was it a revolutionary product, it ingratiated into every bit of daily life design: specifically, skeuomorphic design.
I’m an Indian, who’s lived in India all of his life, barring a couple of years of accumulated flyer miles. India, in recent years, has warmed considerably to the winter festival and the manic shopping associated with it. This is reflected in the way shopping malls across the country have started dressing themselves up in preparation, in an effort to incite cityfolk to splurge on the holiday offers.
