BVT News Roundup 4 January 2014.

Some thoughts on the iPhone 5C from a non-Apple fanboy:

  • The OS and interface are smooth as fuck
  • Camera is crystal clear
  • Email setup is balls easy. (I use it for work but personal accounts can be added without difficulty.)
  • Screen is still smaller than the Galaxy’s but it’s fine for email and photos.
  • Have more exploring to do but so far, can’t complain and yes, I see the appeal.

I don’t mind so much that Apple stuck a couple of Klingon-spouting Trekkies in their commercial for the iPhone 5.

Sheep.

  • The funny thing about this is that just one block down and one block over is a Verizon store with about 20 people in line, waiting for the same God-damned phone.
Baaaa. Baaaaaaaaaa. Baaaaa. Baaaaaaaaaaaaa!

WASHINGTON POST: "If Apple merely continues to turn out better and better products for which consumers are willing to pay premium prices, it’s hardly a bad fate. Microsoft has been milking its Windows, Office and Xbox cash cows for years, and probably can for years more — especially if the company succeeds in re-inventing its offerings for the touch-screen products that appear likely to dominate our near-term future in consumer electronics. But an Apple without startling new innovations wouldn’t be the Apple we’ve known for so long. It wouldn’t be Steve Jobs’s Apple. And that, investors may decide, may make it something less than the nation’s most valuable company." »

A conversation between me and Tumblr about Apple.

ME:  One day people will realize that buying a new iPhone every single year — and, also, the idea that a company convinced people will buy a new iPhone every single year — is just insane and also just plain unrealistic and in no way a sustainable business model and, sky-high as its stock price is now, its share price will take a hit once folks arrive at this rather common-sense conclusion.
TUMBLR:  Shut up you don’t know what the fuck you’re talking about*.
ME:  OMG you’re right.  What do I know?

“I profile a new technology — I hope it’s an iPhone that tells you when to get in line for the new iPhone!”
