Justin Ouellette wrote this piece back in March about Apple Watch and its place among Apple’s products, but I just saw it recently thanks to Alex Stone. It’s a clever way to approach handling tasks in a world of devices that fit on, in, and under our hands.

When Apple shows the slide of their product family (ever increasing to the left in smallness) some view it as a sort of evolution-of-man in reverse, with the smallest thing intended as the top of the food chain. I think a better way to look at it is a stack of sieves with increasingly fine layers of mesh; pour a task in the top and it gets caught at the layer that matches its size.
