forestell always did look a bit radioshack for apple

good call

oh man, I met up with a friend when I was in SF and since I'd just been wandering around all day I was wearing a hoodie and felt way overdressed since she'd just got off work. In retrospect, it was near the financial district so people probably weren't thinking "ugh, slob" they were probably thinking "ugh, those damn tech people"

pat smear and taylor hawkins are dressed like they're ready to do server backups

More that the SF clothing aesthetic is to look frumpy even if you're hailed as a paragon of industrial design.

how often do you think people who work at Apple want to son him but they can't since they still work there

Trying to describe the difference in usability between the iPad Air and its predecessors is an exercise which puts my wordsmithing skills to the test.

This paragraph strikes me as the central thesis of the entire memo. In a nut, it’s a sincere version of “Don’t be evil.”

*barf*

the memo was inside a nut

Some Classic Claim Chowdhry ★
So much to choose from, but here’s a good one from 2009:

Investors should not think the upcoming version of iPhone 3 is going to be as successful as iPhone 2.0 because it will have solid competition from Palm Pre, developed by ex-Apple designer Jon Rubinstein.

Palm Pre has a superior operating system than iPhone. It runs on a better network — Sprint CDMA — versus iPhone which runs on GSM.

I mean, obviously, the original assertion was comical, but dragging up things in 2014 that someone said on the internet in 2009 is a deeply, deeply vindictive and fearful tactic often rooted in deep personal insecurity. If this guy was a co-worker I'd steer around him.

he's really mad about that new apple book huh

in general it seems like the book isn't worth it. wish she'd distilled the new info into a solid article or something though.

check out yesterday's wsj piece about the original iphone. i'll see if i can find a link for slock so he odesn't need to take any time away from youtube

markers, you're sounding disturbingly like one of those dudes who posts to fan sites for anime or w/e who think somebody else is a moron for not remembering which episode of Sailor Moon involved some incident

and the tone was just returning the volley. anyway if i'm being an apple defender here ok but i'm not even sure i am really but who knows

i don't think apple is fucked

assuming that we would know the significance of that post in relation to apple history
that we would know what 9to5 mac is, probably a blog or something?
that we want to go to some other site to read about what is probably a passing anecdote
