It always cracks me up the insane lengths people will got to just to bash a brand they don't like. I have both Macs and PCs so I really don't care... But I have to say the Apple bashers are routinly the funnier of the fanboys.
Rumors are running wild on the net about the iPhone. We don't know for 100% sure it exists, we have no idea what it is like -drunken rumors not withstanding- and as of today we don't know if it will be "delayed" past MacWorld.
But having nothing to go on, the first Apple basher already declares it a flop.
Perspective: The Apple phone flop
By Michael Kanellos
I just looked at the calendar and realized that:
(a) It's only a few weeks to Macworld, where Apple Computer is expected to release a smart phone similar to the BlackBerry, and:
(b) I haven't antagonized Apple fans in a while. It's my birthday this week, after all, and I need to get more fun out of turning 45 than just counting the new moles on my back.
So, anyways, Apple is slated to come out with a new phone. Reports say that it will have a slide-out keyboard, 4GB or 8GB of storage, and work on CDMA or GSM cellular networks. It will start at $249 before subscription rebates.
And it will largely fail.
He argument, such that it is, is based on the idea that other people make cell phones already. I'm sure that news will come as shocking, shocking new to Steve Jobs.
I'm reminded of those now infamous first comments about the iPod posted on Slashdot: No wireless. Less space than a nomad. Lame.
We all know how that one turned out.
