@Jessica Lipsky  What I would value as a user for any Apple / Apple-like products:

1. Simplicity and minimal design
2. Functionality 100% of the time as expected
3. Durability, reliability and security
4. Fully meeting the design intent and more!
5. Surpassing user expectations
6. Adding value in daily life

Hi Alan. Thx for chiming in.

Junko Yoshida was the lead editor on this story and is out this week, so I'll give her first crack to respond next week. I'm sure any one of us would be happy to chat with you.

Great article. I'd be happy to share my experiences as an engineer during the "first coming of Steve Jobs" and founder of "Apple satellite" Open Door Networks. Alan Oppenheimer

As a dedicated user of multiple Apple devices, it's the consistent simplicity I appreciate most, and it takes a lot of ingenuity to pare things down to their essence -- a true Apple hallmark. On a side note, I sooooooo want one of those Stir desks!

I cant agree more that engineers who work at Apple are valued at the same level as people value APple products. Apple has created that class is people's mind that its nothing but the best. Definitely the engineers must be sensing that recognition in social circuit or may be in informal meeting with others.

In the society, the engineers and doctors always are given extra attention and within engineers if you have expereince at Apple, the brand goes a long way. I guess the engineering excellence, design, corporate social responsibility and business standard Apple has set , its rare to find and definitely it has to do with the passion and hard work of their engineers. SO yes they can very well say "Ex-Apple".

Many of the engineers we interviewed shared an appreciation for Apple's attention to detail and production values. What are the values you appreciate as engineers or Apple users?
