New Year, Same Crap

January 26th, 2013 · Comments Off · iPhone, Political Crap, Punditbots and Fundtards

I’m embarking on a new, more sustainable Rip Ragged. From this point forward I’m planning to post once a week on Saturdays. We’ll see how that goes. If that works out, I might, later, start to toss out a few tidbits on the days in between. But just for now I want to start running [...]

The last girl at the kegger (the next morning)

I bet a bag of roasted, salted pistachios and a bottle of Pale Ale Apple is paying the press to write about Android and iPhones and market share. Only a conspiracy could be so completely friendly to Apple. They keep reassuring Apple’s competitors that Android has the market share, is activated on bazillions of phones [...]

Happy Birthday iPhone

January 10th, 2012 · 5 Comments · iPhone

It’s the fifth anniversary (yesterday) of Steve Jobs introducing the vaporous iPhone. It didn’t exist. It was a lot of FUD. Oh, sure, Steve had a thing on the stage that he used as a prop while images of some glorious gadget flashed on the screen behind him. But you couldn’t buy one. You could [...]
