Straight talk from Steve Jobs:
Goddamn, this game looks like an obscene amount of fun:
(I mean, assuming it actually comes out on May 3rd, like they say it will)
Some really candid words from the man himself:
It’s making the rounds pretty well everywhere that Steve is taking some time off to focus on his health. Everybody’s going to be speculating about whether he’s goddamn dying again, or if his new organ is tanking, or something like that, and I’m sure the haters will be predicting the stock dropping 87% by tomorrow.
I’m just assuming he’s taking time off because of the physical stress it caused him to reject my Mossboard from the App Store.
Wake up, you bastards, it’s time for a contest! I’m giving away 2 autographed flasks to folks to tweet this message:
Follow @mosspuppet and RT for a chance to win 1 of 2 autographed Booze Flasks! http://bit.ly/dG1gNB
In one week, on January 23rd, I’ll pick at random two of the people who retweet this message, and send them each a lovely flask, hand-autographed by me, Walt Mosspuppet.
Shut up, here’s what it looks like:
If I were creating a start-up today, I’d call it MossCrunch. Or CrunchMoss. Or CrunchBookSpace.
So the Verizon CES Keynote came and went, and I hope nobody had money on the announcement of the Verizon iPhone. If you did, the line for the soup-kitchen for idiot analysts starts to your left.
Why does anyone pay attention to these analysts, anyway? They’re nearly always goddamn wrong. Most of these people, who somehow get actual money for their predictions, are actually worse than random chance?
You guys are all idiots.
Do you know how I knew that there wouldn’t be an iPhone announcement at CES? Aside from the fact that it seems strange to me that Apple would put out an actual new phone just a few months before the iPhone 5 will inevitably be released, leaving a lot of Verizon customers in the lurch (or waiting until the iPhone 5 announcement, which would leave Verizon’s sales of iPhones pretty much where they are now), I knew that the iPhone announcement wouldn’t happen because all the analysts were saying it would happen.
To paraphrase a nice zinger aimed at fabulist Stephen Glass, if an the analyst tells me the sky is blue, I’ll find a second opinion.
