The Comparison

October 25th, 2014 · 3 Comments · General Detritus

Apple’s stock price went up again. The punditbots are saying some incredibly stupid things. I don’t, as a general rule, link articles on the innertubes because I don’t like to contribute to things I find stupid. However, thisĀ is so incredibly inane that it’s funny. I just have to.

So anyway, Apple had an event last week. They introduced a 27″ 5k iMac. Once upon a time a 25″ NTSC Television was the centerpiece of the well-appointed American living room. I grew up in that era. My dear old Dad was a TV Repairman in those days. I’m here to promise you that you […]

We Know Who You Are. We Saw What You Did.

It has been almost a month since Apple introduced anything new. Apple is doomed. Doomed. … I have been reading on Macalope and Daring FireballĀ that Apple has committed a major faux pas by announcing they’re going to protect the privacy of users. Apple stated that they have it all fixed up that they can’t get […]
