The Charlie Rose Show has tweeted that Jony Ive and Marc Newson are interviewed on the show, which aired last night in some markets and is shown tonight in others.

The two previously appeared in a five-minute video talking about the items they designed for tomorrow’s charity RED auction, which include special editions of the Mac Pro and Leica M camera, and an aluminum desk … 

Product RED was an initiative created by U2 musician Bono as a way or raising both funds and awareness for fighting AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria in Africa through The Gobal Fund. Partner companies – which include Apple, Nike, American Express, Starbucks, Armani and Beats Electronics – create special RED-branded products, and pay a percentage of the profits to the charity.

The Global Fund is an international financing institution that fights AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria with a 21st century approach: partnership, transparency, constant learning and results-based funding.

Whether it is distributing mosquito nets to protect families from malaria in Honduras, training peer counsellors who work with teenagers diagnosed with HIV in South Africa, or providing equipment for the diagnosis of tuberculosis to clinics in Kazakhstan, partners in each country fighting the pandemics find support from the Global Fund.

The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria was created in 2002 to dramatically increase resources for the fight against the three pandemics. It spurs partnerships between government, civil society, the private sector and communities living with the diseases, the most effective way to fight these deadly infectious diseases. The Global Fund does not manage or implement programs on the ground, relying instead on local experts. It works with partners to ensure that funding serves the men, women and children affected by these diseases in the most effective way.

The Charlie Rose Show describes itself as featuring interviews with “thinkers, writers, politicians, athletes, entertainers, businesspersons, leaders, scientists, and other newsmakers.”

    I understand when he says “the absence of clutter” but outside that, what the heck is he talking about? He’s starting to sound like a broken record, or like an athlete who was made to memorize a handful of sentences.


    • It might be that he has been asked the same questions for years now and perhaps he has grown accustomed to some phrases in his sentences. Just an idea, I don’t think anyone except him really knows what he is thinking.


  2. This guy seems to know only a couple of phrases and they all include the same words.

    I love the design of my iPad 4. Thanks Jony


  4. iOS7 is not simpler than iOS6…. more hidden menus… more difficult to do the same things… more taps to accomplish the same things

    This sounds almost exactly like the iOS 7 promotion video, especially when he talks about the absence of cluster and ornamentation. He is really on to something when he talks about how you can only improve on something when you thoroughly understand it, and if you’re able to refine the essence of it, rather than to reduce it.
