Apple to put voices in your head

I found this article about Apple’s work with the hearing impared fascinating. I had no idea we were at the point of surgically implanting hearing aids, but apparently 10% of hearing aid customers could really stand to benefit from the surgery.

You just gotta love the clean lines of the workspaces and common areas shown.

Pour yourself a cup of coffee and sit-back in your favorite chair because it’s a long article, but so worth the time.
