This week on Technotopia I talked to Jonathan Zufi, creator of LifeClock One, a replica of the watch worn by Snake Pliskin in Escape From New York. Zufi loves design and his vision of what makes a timeless classic something fascinating – even when it’s computer hardware – is fascinating.

Zufi is also the author of Iconic, a book that details Apple products from the early days until the latest models. It’s a beautiful book and the photos are incredible. It’s worth reading if you like design, hardware or Apple.
