Stephen Suckale

He asked whether components produced in thirty different countries, when assembled into a computer by Samsung, constitute production.
That is not production, but design, he replied.
I don´t see any labourers at work.
The assembly is taken care of by robots, he added.
And what are we to make of the finger flicks with which the cancer-plagued head of Apple, Steve Jobs made his touch-screen models so successful - is that not also design?
No, he responded.
The products are the fingertips themselves and the "handiness", he added.
Something like that enters into the world as a need because in everyday life there are no worry stones to hold in your hand and certainly little if any sensuouness.
The lack is the producer himself.
