The Macalope Weekly: Comparing the incomparable
Posted 28 September 2013 - 04:00 AM
"the debut would have been closer to six million units, up 20% from last year." (minus the additional 3 mil 5c's)
"it would trail the 80% growth of smartphones running Google’s Android operating system in the 12 months through June, according to Strategy Analytics."
With Apple numbers being a comparison of the opening weekend sales and Android numbers being for MONTHS. Of course those stats are from Strategy Analytics and I use them all the time to pick my lottery numbers. I just cannot figure out why I have not won yet.

Ha! LOL'd at that one..!
Personally, I'm looking forward to the tearful piece from Rob Enderle about how RIM / Blackberry withering on the vine is another of his greatest failures, just like the way he failed to save Steve Ballmer from himself. I'm sure Rob has been in the same room as the RIM co-CEOs at some point and he can spin that into a close personal relationship that would have helped turn the company around if only they'd listened to him or he'd been more persuasive…
Maybe he's saving that for when the private company fails.

Apple Maps reveals dangerous airport flaw overlooked by FAA and TSA
why? Because it is Apple. And apparently in Alaska it is OK for airports to be accessible by civilian (or terrorist) vehicles that can drive right onto a runway.

I think that these pundits should have been writing about the 64-bit A7 chip and 64-bit iOS 7 and it's implication to future hardware and software. And they say Apple cannot "innovate" anymore. These pundits wouldn't know innovation if it came up and bit them on the ass. 64-bit OS X and 64-bit iOS is a great platform from which great and innovative software will be built.
Since the cost of publishing on the Internet is so low we get both good and bad articles. With Apple the balance seems tilted more to the bad side. All of this is really meaningless because Apple will just keep doing what it does and keep doing it well.

Or they should take back his diploma and threaten legal action if he even mentions that he went to their school!
