So. There’s an Apple event tomorrow. Rumor has it that there will be some mention of iPads.
I still have a first edition iPad. I bought it right after Jas brought hers over on a visit from college. I still want a new one. I’ll get there one of these days.
Anyway, the big event is tomorrow. The slogan is, “It’s been way too long.” I don’t know what’s been way too long about announcing an update to the iPad. Seriously. WTF?
I’ve tried and tried to come up with something that’s been way too long. Nothing useful springs to mind.
- It’s been way too long since the weekend.
- It’s been way too long since somebody else was paying the bills and buying the groceries.
- It’s been way too long since Ronald Reagan was president.
- It’s been way too long since there was a TV series worth watching (M*A*S*H).
- It’s been way too long since there was a really great movie (The Outlaw Josey Wales).
- It’s been way too long since I started this idiotic list.
Possible Apple is going to introduce something really, really new. I’ve seen the notion of an Apple branded television set bounced around.
Maybe Apple is going to get back into the printer business. That would be cool. An Apple branded printer probably wouldn’t piss me off as much as the other brands I’ve used. And I’ve used them all. Brother, Epson, Canon, H-P, you name it. Every one of them could suck a baseball inside out.
You probably heard about all the stuff going on with GTAT, the company that was supposed to make sapphire stuff for Apple. They’re going bankrupt. It’s all Apple’s fault. The contract is onerous and burdensome or something like that. It seems GTAT signed a contract saying they would make stuff, and now they can’t make the stuff, and Apple still expects them to make the stuff before they’ll pay them. Bastards.
That’s like going to the store for a loaf of bread to find that the store doesn’t have any bread, and can’t make enough to meet your needs anyway. The store files bankruptcy and blames you for not paying for bread. You asshole.
Of course, the store owners sell a bunch of the store’s stock after the share price goes up based on your agreement to buy a shit-ton of bread.
And then you don’t pay for the bread they can’t make and destroy their business. You bastard.
