    I'm pretty sure Apple had that idea before, I smell a lawsuit brewing.

    Cap, just drink some of whatever Apple serves up and believe everything they tell you and you'll be fine.

    They will tell you what you want. Then you can book a "friend" appointment and be happy.

    Nah.

    I would rather laugh and not let the marketing effect me emotionally.

    It's obvious it effects you enough to bring up a company that wasn't mentioned in the article.

    "Above it all, like an ominous thundercloud, floats Apple. Motorola, Nokia, Google, Microsoft and Amazon (which is announcing its new products today in Santa Monica) all need to stake down their tents before Apple blows in next week with its iPhone 5. The rhetoric, pomp and flash are a desperate bid to attract some attention, any attention, before the real show arrives."

    Oh, all right.

    You saw the word "Apple" and you couldn't focus on the rest of the story.


    your obsession with Apple is starting to worry me. I'm afraid you're going to crack and go off the deep end, buddy.

    It was a reaction to the last sentence or two of my quoted paragraph.

    "Real show..."
    Apparently (if leaks hold true) the author feels not that the pomp is ridiculous in and of itself, but only because its percieved to be a desperate move to counter the iPhone campaign.

    Agreed with him up to that point. Then his bias showed. Disregarded the whole thing after thar. Getting thick in the media with the reports of Android and Window 8 devices being desperate for consumers attention.
