A few Dyson staffers I spoke to pointed out that Apple often puts the emphasis on design for design’s sake, intentionally shrouding the workings of its computers—anathema to Dyson ideology.
When I visited, in late May, Dyson was in the process of hiring three hundred and fifty more engineers, but he was worried about finding British citizens to fill the positions. He observed that India produces a hundred and seventy thousand engineers each year, while Britain graduates about twenty thousand. “If I were in India, I would have no trouble finding people. But here it’s difficult.” Even if Britain can stimulate its high-tech and industrial sector, there won’t be enough British engineers to fill the jobs, based on the current numbers of engineering graduates.
