Apple's marketing is all about the warm family nostalgia feels you get from using an iphone. not a bit of technical expertise or cutting edge hipsterdom in sight.

in a few years they'll be the next blackberry.

FTFA Apple enjoyed a head start in the smart phone market with the iPhone and in tablets with the iPad.

Ah ... no they didn't.  Revisionist history much?

/of course Apple is different - that's actually a good thing

Genius? No.

Borderline sociopath or possible high-functioning autism? yes.

You have to excuse Jobs not showing up to the second year anniversary as he is quite buried in his work right now.

Apple has quickly lost marketshare to Android. Currently they are secondplace in the market, with Android showing no signs of slowing down, and numerous tablet/phone makers eating up Apple's lunch.

And justifiably so. iOS is garbage and Apple's closed system approach to the market is bad for the consumer.

See it was funny when the headline was about Amy Winehouse, 'cause it was original then and was largely the result of her own stupidity. Now the headline's just weak and pathetic.

d23: Wow. Subby is going to hell fo sho.


He turned to alternative magical bullshiat for curing his disease so I'm giving subby a pass.

Is this the lets bag on Apple thread and show how bad they are, or did some of you actually buy the Samsung Galaxy Gear watch thing.

/worst idea ever, Apple will most likely never release an iWatch.

Well, he is cancer-free, so I would say it worked.

Apple is in the Steve Ballmer Ghost Ship mode of their corporate life. It's like they've been paralyzed with fear now that they don't have their autistic weirdo in chief.

So fun to listen to you guys defend the guy who had a biography written so that his daughter would know about him.

Is there an opposite to Apple "fanboi"?  Because the opposing members seem way more passionate about their feelings than the usual consumer that chooses Apple products.  Applesnivelers?

No, the greatest marketing evil genius of all time is whoever came up with bottled water for $2+/pint. #2 would probably be HP for getting people to plunk down enough for inkjet cartridges to render it one of the most expensive liquids on the planet, way ahead of the most expensive perfume. I think the only liquid more expensive would be liquid hydrogen or some such.

When are people going to write how Steve Jobs was an impatient asshole of the highest caliber. Well, the asshole is long dead. The End.
 
2013-10-06 12:43:02 PM  
Jobs was the face of the personal computer revolution but he gets a lot of credit for the work other people did.  His business savvy is impressive, but much of the technology and innovation that made said revolution possible did not come from him and in some cases did not come from Apple at all.  His death was tragic and I would not wish what he had on anyone, but there are a lot of people who deserve a slice of his fame who never get mentioned and who society has already forgotten.

It's straight up Pavlovian that whenever these threads come up the same few people repeat the exact same things over and over again.

But then again, this is Fark. Originality isn't really bred in these parts.

Lately the anti-iPhone derp I get emailed to me by my tinfoil hat father has been cranked up to potato. The stuff from WND refers to the iPhone as a "newfound technological gadget" designed to undermine and destroy Real Amurka. I can't wait until Google glass turns up on their radar in 8 years.

It's rarely acknowledged that whenever there is a figurehead getting credit, this is  always the case. Tesla is a great case for this. If you read pop-sites on the internet you would get the impression that he was electric Jesus. But most of his work was already established, just not in widespread use. See: Alternating Current
