I’m not sure if it’s cute that they keep trying, or delusional that they think they should.

The Kno tablet would be great if it were made by Apple

Of course, if it were made by Apple, there’d be no stylus support, because only nobody’s like stylii.*

(I get an exemption from this rule, because I’m the goddamn Kingmaker, and my close, personal friend Steve Jobs said so)

Dear Verizon iPhone Rumours: Shut up.

Even Verizon is flat-out denying it, and making bizarre requirements of my close, personal friend Steve Jobs.

Please, for the love of the internet’s sanity, shut up about the goddamn Verizon iPhone. It’s about as topical as man’s invention of the wheel.

“Apple TV Apps” is the new Verizon iPhone

September 23, 2010 1 comment

Even though the rumours of a new AppleTV/iTV with a handy-dandy app store have proven to be completely false, by virtue of the fact that the upgraded AppleTV has been announced and released, why should this stop tech journalists from talking about it as though it’s a certainty?

Is this really the state of online tech journalism? It’s like everyone’s still giving their impassioned predictions that the Y2K bug will totally be crash planes and end the world, when it happens. It’s embarrassing.

Seriously, journalists: yeah, I guess you can keep repeating a rumor over and over in the hope that one day it will be true, and that by doing so you can appear to have insider knowledge, rather than being, say, a linkbaiting bastard stuck in a loop, but that doesn’t actually make you accurate.
