iSheep? Some People Still Don’t Understand

The Inside Story of How the iPhone Crippled BlackBerry

The article is interesting, but what’s astounding is this Comment underneath it:

This was how bad the original iPhone was. No Cut and Paste for its first two years and no Exchange email support for that same two year period. But no matter as iSheep will buy whatever they are told and with enough of a marketing budget you can get the rest of the masses to think that they needed this device.

Fast forward a few years. Now we have every US cellular carrier locked into multi-billion dollar a year sales quotes with Apple to sell iOS products whether the consumers want them or not. Verizon owes Apple $21.5 billion, ATT over $14 billion, and T-Mobile, Sprint over $7 billion a year each. And then Apple has sales quota deals like this with cellular firms the world over.

Bravo Apple for making so that people’s only option is an iPhone.

What? What?

The last line is by itself a Richter Scale WTF:

Bravo Apple for making so that people’s only option is an iPhone.

So I’ve been hallucinating all of those Android phones by Alcatel, ZTE, Sony, Blu, Asus, Xiaomi, Samsung, and Oppo that have caught my interest and I’ve posted about here?

No. I think that guy is hallucinating that there’s only iPhone available.

Xiaomi’s Lin Bin Gets Close To Mythic Bill Gates 640K Pronouncement



No. No. No. It’s never enough. Stop being a storage fascist!

What annoys me about the high-end Xiaomi phones — including the Mi Note Pro — is the lack of microSD card slot. And that’s the way Hugo Barra wants it: Hugo Barra on why Xiaomi is against microSD cards in phones.

That short-sighted shit will come back to haunt Barra and wound Xiaomi.


Computer Memory: 640K Ought to be Enough for Anyone

Same-day update: This gets up my nose so much, I had to come back to this post. Hey, Xiaomi. Here’s your solution! Make your own damn microSD cards, just like Samsung does.

Sony Does A Facepalm Move

Now that they’ve released the Android 5.0 update for the Xperia T2 Ultra, they’ve also raised the price from US$249 to US$299!


From time to time, the website has shown it for US$299, but it was always US$249 in-store. Now it’s US$299 in-store.

At US$249, I could talk myself into it over the US$249 Alcatel OneTouch Idol 3.

At US$50 more, I just can’t justify it despite my love of the design, screen size, and sleek thinness.

Sony really better hope the Alcatel OneTouch Idol 3 is as locked-up as the ZTE Zmax!

Apple Goes Asshole Again

Apple now rejecting apps with Pebble Smartwatch support

SeaNav US has previously been approved by Apple with no problem, we have had Pebble support in SeaNav for nearly 2 years and there are no changes to our support for the Pebble in this version. What are Apple doing? Have they gone Apple Watch crazy? What can we do?

The fifth year of assholism.

2010: Apple bans Android magazine app

No mater how advanced iOS is over Android, and no matter how fantastic Apple’s own apps for it are, when Apple does something like this, it makes Android look like a no-brainer to get.

And it’s smug behavior like this that will eventually be the downfall of Apple, one way or another.

Same-day update:

We’ll see what happens.

How The Hell Does This Even Make Any Sense?!


A guy wins $500 on a scratch-off lottery ticket. His girlfriend wants some. He doesn’t want to share. He shoots her and then shoots himself dead. She later dies at the hospital.

Neither one of them gets the money.

This country is spinning into a whirlpool of insanity.
