i love it when that deep vein of conservatism that runs through everything he writes bubbles up

caek, Wednesday, 3 April 2013 15:07 (seven years ago) link

ya like when he goes off on how america doesnt need unions anymore smh

zero dark (s1ocki), Wednesday, 3 April 2013 16:04 (seven years ago) link

what is the deep vien of conservatism, that he likes the incredibles

i'm down with the kind of conservatism that avoids sequels but that means no iphone 5s, 6 etc...

like i feel his extreme aesthetic conservatism is part of a more general cultural conservatism

i dont know why i ever had that guy in my RSS reader but when i dumped him and some other gruberhead dittoheads (kept the main guy tho) i felt like my life had noticeably improved

Gruber spends way too much time calling out people who say dumb shit about apple, not enough time rumor-mongering.

my god i only have 2 useless beyblade (silby), Wednesday, 3 April 2013 17:44 (seven years ago) link

i still read him all the time he is horrible but there are lots of good links on there and he even writes good stuff occasionally and i even like the claim chowder because im into predictions and its fun to see old ones

lag∞n, Wednesday, 3 April 2013 18:53 (seven years ago) link

ya thats me basically haha

zero dark (s1ocki), Wednesday, 3 April 2013 20:36 (seven years ago) link

i only read when he is linked from other places, and it's usually pretty good. who's a less horrible gruber, though, so i can read that instead?

how the hell is jon gruber a verified account

乒乓, Wednesday, 17 April 2013 02:31 (seven years ago) link

no idea but my guess is that a lot of people at twitter know who he is

markers, Wednesday, 17 April 2013 02:36 (seven years ago) link

he's one of the most visible tech writers in the industry

markers, Wednesday, 17 April 2013 02:37 (seven years ago) link

yeah groobs is up there with any of the broadsheet guys like Pogue, Ihnatko, Mossberg.

i hate this world

乒乓, Wednesday, 17 April 2013 11:49 (seven years ago) link

gruber is occasionally douchey but I still read him.

See also: MG Siegler.

The Great Forgiver (dandydonweiner), Wednesday, 17 April 2013 11:55 (seven years ago) link

siegler is so much worse. particularly since he's a VC and has a vested interest in all the shit he writes about

zero dark (s1ocki), Wednesday, 17 April 2013 13:06 (seven years ago) link

MG Siegler @parislemon 4m
The stock market is a game. And if you don't realize that, you're sadly in the group being gamed.

lol is he reading this thread

gary vaynerchuk tweeting "i miss u" at gruber is the only worthwhile thing that ever happened on twitter

markers, Wednesday, 17 April 2013 16:44 (seven years ago) link

is it a blink182 refernce? this world of micro online mac celebrities seems completely divorced from the world of micro flesh mac celebrities.

Philip Nunez, Wednesday, 17 April 2013 17:26 (seven years ago) link

it could be looked at that way, but gary certainly wasn't thinking of tom delonge

markers, Wednesday, 17 April 2013 17:28 (seven years ago) link

that being said, i'm going to take this opportunity on this relatively obscure thread to announce that i'm done with that as a meme/thing and won't be posting it anymore

markers, Wednesday, 17 April 2013 17:29 (seven years ago) link

and now that i've said it i guess it's true so there we go

markers, Wednesday, 17 April 2013 17:29 (seven years ago) link

i don't know who gary is, so contextually blink182 is all i have to go on. (i also don't know who gruber is either other than he seems to be linked to a lot)

have you guys come across any japanese mac magazines? they look really content-rich. I feel like there's a vast trove of good mac journalism hidden from us at kinokuniya while the english-speaking world has to settle for weird twitter people

Philip Nunez, Wednesday, 17 April 2013 17:39 (seven years ago) link

he's a social media dude or whatever

I'm sure gruber's Yankees fandom has been mentioned as part of his indefensibility itt.
