10 across: Jonathan meets model at Java function (6)
Jonathan = apple, model = T, which gives Jonathan meets model = applet = Java function. Here, the direct clue is practically impossible without an IT background, which I have. How people having nothing to do with IT should know that Java refers to a computer language and that one of it’s functions can be to create applets is beyond me, though.
- the cryptic crossword as it appears on The Age and SMH websites is an applet
- Jonathon Ive is the industrial designer behind many of Apple’s cool hardware designs, so the Jonathan in the clue could conceivably refer to the industrial designer rather than the fruit
