The Answer

The man in the photo (the nice-looking Londoner on the left in the previous post) is Jonathan Ive.
Read about him here... but all you really need to know is that he has designed three undeniably stunning, usable and life-changing devices. Most people would die to match that in a lifetime. He's done it in the last 15 years.
In hindsight, I completely blew the opportunity to have him sign my 1st Generation iPod (yeah, the 5-gigger). The moral of the story (as always): Advanced age is no cure for nerdiness.

Of course he drives and Aston Martin. And yes, you are a complete dork for not bringing you original iPod, and a complete dork for wishing you had.

Intersting little note: the fact that Ive drives an Aston Martin only shows up in the Personal Life section of his Wikipedia article when viewed in Safari. This little fact is mysteriously missing from the same section when viewed in FireFox...

And I was hoping it was Donny. Bollocks.
