Apparently, Apple — Steve Jobs

Saturday, November 7th, 2015

Apple died with Steve, October 5, 2011

Open letter to Tim Cook:

I was hopeful. I was patient.

I’ve been disappointed. Over and over again.

You were given a 5 year plan by the man. You promptly threw it in the trash because you know better, right? We’re only four years out and it seems like Steve has been gone for a decade. An iPad PRO?!?! That’s just like the Microsoft Surface Pro?

That’s all you got? FOLLOWING? MICROSOFT? I wish Bill Gates was turning over in his grave.

You and your butt-boy Jonny Ives show no intent to let up. You don’t care that you’re destroying everything Steve built. You’re perfectly happy to take hundreds of millions of dollars for yourselves while you destroy the most successful company mankind has ever known. Also destroying the best electronic products man has ever known, just to make Jonny and the homos happy with how pretty it is, HIG be damned!

Riding on coattails doesn’t even begin to describe it. The company WILL crash and burn. The only question is, ‘How soon?’ No concern of yours, natch. You’re changing the world, too. Just like Steve.

Hey Jonny: Flat design in a UI is WRONG! WRONG! You’re WRONG! It’s not only ugly, It’s MUCH HARDER TO USE! User interface isn’t about what makes your nether parts tingle with pretty, you stupid fuck. Your personal arrogance has made my day-to-day life more difficult. But as long as YOU think it’s pretty, that’s alright with you, right? “Fuck all the decades of research about how humans interact with stuff. I’m pretty and what I make is pretty and don’t we all like (my limited, personal definition of what is) pretty? Haterz gonna hate!” (RT, gf. That’s rich!)

You’re pissing on what Steve built.

You’ve taken me from an Apple evangelist, to “maybe they’ll wise up and correct it,” to “Fuck Apple. They’re ignorant and don’t give a shit about good products because they’re rich now and obsessed with special ‘rights’ for homosexuals.”

I don’t think you assholes running Apple now realize that you’re a minority of a minority or that NOBODY buying your products gives a rat’s ass about Jonny’s “design.” He’s not a software guy and it’s obvious to everyone but you, Tim. Bring Scott back. He understood and respected the HIG.

My 70 year old mother was a hard sell in the old days. But then she loved and trusted Apple products for years and spent THOUSANDS of precious dollars on Apple stuff. She recently gave into Apple nagging and “upgraded” her two year old iPad mini to iOS9.

(Note to Apple: iOS9 is worse than iOS8 and no one can function with your crappy OS without buying a new iOS device. Did you already know that? You’re not making friends.)

She’s now emailing me for advice because it’s unusable and implying that she won’t replace it at all. She’s completely disillusioned. Congratulations! You just lost a valuable customer forever. But you don’t care as long as the broke milennials still love you. Those entitled little fucks get their iOS devices replaced by their parents every two years. Fuck the old people with money! Not our target market! They’ll be dead soon!

Besides, it’s pretty, right?!?!

Jonny’s design is awful, ugly and stupid. But far worse than that, it’s made your devices indistinguishable from Microsoft and your other competitors.

Everything is flat, ugly and hard to use. Microsoft Surface, check. Google’s Android, check. Apple’s iOS, check.

Tell me again, Tim, why I should pay a premium for your device when you broke my iPad with iOS8, lied and failed to fix it with iOS9 and I can get an Android tablet running “Marshmallow” for about $69.

You’re losing, Tim. If you wanna just ride the stock market on iTunes store sales, go right ahead. I used to love Apple for superior hardware and evangelize because of superior software. I know Guy Kawasaki. I was an early subscriber to his “Evanglista” email list. I got my first Apple (IIc) in 1984 and my first Mac in 1996 – as soon as I could “afford it” on my sister’s MicroCenter credit card. Yes, I gladly went into debt for a Mac at the height of the “Apple is dying,” Gil Amelio era, in the hey-day of MacOS 7.1!

Now I’m thinking about replacing my iPhone with an Android phone and my iPad with an Android tablet. I’ll pour a little on the ground for my fallen homie, Steve. It’s unfortunately obvious that he’s not coming back to save Apple a second time.

I’ll never forget what he did to build the company, save the company and change the world. Or how quickly you forgot and ruined everything. Completely.

In his own voice

Here’s to the crazy ones… because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.

I saw genius.

Leftism == hate

Friday, January 14th, 2011

I haven’t posted in a few months. I might not for a few more. The last time I did, I received the following comment:

Stupid people shouldn’t say stupid shit about things they don’t understand. It’s now November 19. Daily Kos doesn’t seem to be in “full meltdown”. Your president isn’t a muslim, dummy. Read a book. The fascists is in the mirror.

I was a few months off in my calculation of Kos melting down. He didn’t do it until he got the mass murder for which he had prepared his response. He responded with all of this within hours:

Kos == Douche

Forget that the ignorant ideologue doesn’t know the First Amendment from the Second. He was attempting to attach Sharron Angle to the mass murder in Tucson based on a comment she made months ago, in another state. It’s a statement he clearly misunderstood about the SECOND amendment.

Click the pic to see that not only was he using the death of six people and the serious injury of at least thirteen others to advance talking points he had pre-prepared, the sick whore was also doing it to sell his discredited book. (I’ll bet Jared Loughner had read it, Markos. You sold a copy!)

He also quickly scrubbed his whore-site of a post that was still warm. The post was less than 48 hours old. That comment was posted by someone, like the deranged killer, that had believed in and worked for Gabrielle Giffords. He – BoyBlue – wrote that because Gabby voted against Nancy Pelosi for “Leader” last week, “she [Gabby] is DEAD TO ME! DEAD TO ME!”

Let’s just see if Markos and any of his other knee-jerk traveling buddies that feed on tragedy got anything right. Shall we? It’s been a few days now and the facts have come out.

Jared Lee Loughner…

  • Didn’t “watch TV”
  • Didn’t “like the news”

I guess we can let MSNBC off the hook for hate speech crimes!

  • Didn’t listen to “political radio”

Ed Schultz & Mike Malloy are safe, too! So is Randi Rhodes (use your real name, you hateful, vicious coward!)

  • Was a “pothead”
  • “creeped everybody out”
  • “seemed weird and agitated all the time”
  • “was pretty radical leftist in his beliefs”
  • “was obsessed with Rep. Giffords since 2007″ (before the Tea Party existed and before most of the country had heard the name “Palin”)
  • Believed in the reality of “lucid dreams” and kept a “dream journal”

So far, this seems like nearly every Democrat I’ve ever met.

  • Wrote, “Die, Bitch!” with “Giffords” next to it
  • Wrote, “I have planned ahead for my assassination”
  • “seemed obsessed with the occult”
  • Is an atheist
  • Had a tent in his back yard with a shrine that included a skull sitting in rotted oranges, surrounded by ceremonial candles
  • Had campus police called on him at least five times before he was thrown out of school… with no follow up.
  • Had the the Sheriff’s department (Sheriff Dupnik) visit his house – his HOUSE – TEN times in nine years. Two of those resulted in his arrest. One was because HE called them to report that his “identity had been stolen.” (The sick freak is only twenty-two years old now. I know it hurts, but do some math.)

Still sounds like many of the Democrats I’ve known. Except for the skull-in-rotted-oranges thing. That’s just bizarre.

Alas, his mother was a County Supervisor in Pima County.

You didn’t know that?

Oh, yeah. That certainly can explain why the Worst Sheriff in the country – Sheriff Dupnik – could be dispatched to her house ten times in nine years. Plus a few times to the college. Then blame Rush Limbaugh when the psycho – that Sheriff Dupnik KNEW PERSONALLY and did NOTHING to stop – kills a half dozen people and wounds fourteen others.

Them’s facts.

If you want some speculation to follow up on…

I’ve read but have not confirmed that admitted terrorist Bill Ayers’ curriculum was used in Loughner’s high school while he was there. That would explain a lot.

But don’t let facts get in your way when you have a Marxist religion to promote.

It’s clearly the fault of Tea Parties and Limbaugh and Palin.

No! Wait! It’s obviously all Glenn Beck’s fault.

Democratic Suicide

Thursday, September 30th, 2010

I’m loving this. Democrats can’t stop hurting themselves.

I can’t wait for November 3rd.

DailyKos will be in full meltdown.

The rats are jumping ship – Orszag, Romer,Axelrod,Emanuel….. Who’s next?

Obama is a failure. Everyone knows that except Barack and Michelle. They’re too stupid and narcissistic to recognize it. They’ll do the Jimmy Carter thing and lie about their record 30 years after they’ve been sent to the curb by voters.

This is fun if you love freedom and hate fascists. I happen to do both as habits.

Never trust a Muslim

Their religion teaches them to lie and their god is the father of it.

That’s what’s wrong with America today… The White House has been invaded.

You’ve been warned.
