It seems like just a few months ago, Apple was doomed by its glacial 12 month product cycle. Now, an estimated 50 million iPhones and 24 million iPads later, it is doomed by the *perception* that it has shifted to a 6 month cycle.

Perhaps the next iPhone should be in a suppository format so Forbes writers can place their phones closer to their ears.

Richard Saintvillus, who sounds like a leftover conflicted villain from the Harry Potter books, scores quite high on the MFI (Macalope Funniness Index).

The index mainly proves that the dumber the article, the funnier the Macalope. Charts and graphs coming soon.

I’d like to see Apple produce a smartoaster, but I’m biased.

I think we need to consider another possibility: this isn't a linkbait article, but a Macalope-bait article. It's so terrible that I'd swear it was written just for the Macalope to skewer.

But that would give Forbes much more credit than it deserves.

This is genius. I'm imagining the Forbes "news"-room checking Macworld every morning, then giving each other high-fives when they see: "Dude, I made it to the Macalope!"

I wonder if anyone over at Apple headquarters is listening to Mr. Saintvillus sage advice. They are probably redoing their 2014 strategy as we speak.

Once a Forbes journalist^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H typist has revealed the bitter truth, Apple must realize that they don't have much hope unless they switch to the new strategy at once. No really, the man writes for Forbes! Who is Tim Cook, just some hand picked by Steve Jobs CEO of a multi-billion dollar enterprise , phfff.

@Jeffcarlson You sir made my day! >.<

We all love the fury one but to go the lengths of writing POS just to make it to the Macalope column, that's what i call commitment. Or could it be something a bit like secret love?

Stalkers? Forbes love so much the Macalope that the only way to get lope's attention is to write this kind of link-baits?

OMG! The plot thickens! :P

#1 @jeffcarlson- Thanks for sharing that thread of humor!
#2 @zeta2009- Thanks for your turn. It helped me make sense as to why Forbes placed a large order for salt licks!
