Apple Fanboy Rant

Here at NJI Media, we have a thing for beautiful design and flawless functionality. Apple is one of those organizations who continually nails these two qualities with every product release.

We’re obsessed with imagery. In fact, we like to pick up a camera now and then to give a behind-the-scenes look how NJI gets to it. Sometimes, we catch one of the company dogs doing a cool trick and it must be documented and shared. Other times, we’re just trying to settle an argument about fowl hunting regulations.
