That damned Launch

What's Mallard raving about today?

iPhone Launch

Mallard only missed iPhone launch day by a single day (nice math skills), whereas he forgot 9/11 completely.

Make of that what you will.

That stupid mainstream media! They're either giving more attention to an issue than Mallard and his handlers desire, or they're giving less! Why can't they (and the dumb-ass public they serve) get with the program already??

Eh, I have to give Mallard a pass on this one. Last night, I caught a segment on CNN about how Apple wasn't using Google's map widget anymore and my only thought was "This is news?" Seriously, they don't have time for an in-depth story about the Senkaku Islands incident and China's economic warfare against Japan, but they do have time to air free ads for a goddamn phone that's basically identical to a model released a year ago?

Seriously, fuck Tinsley, but fuck CNN harder.

To be fair, the fact that the new iOS 6 upgrade's map software is significantly inferior to Google Maps is of great import to a lot of people, who have come to rely on their phones for navigational purposes. It's also a rare man-bites-dog case of Apple making something markedly worse. Just because it's not of international gravity doesn't make it un-news.

I'm guessing that Bruce has been pissed at Apple, though, ever since he killed his first iPhone by dropping it in the toilet while "reviewing" his daily research one evening.

I know this is about the iPhone 4, but nothing has really changed.

"I don't care."

Yes, I have an EVO.
