woman visits her dad at apple, sees his iphone x prototype, makes (with his permission) a little video of her using it, and posts it on youtube

yosposters living in or near cupertino may have been awakened this morning by the sonic boom of apple moving to disable dads account access and security badge

hahaha, Gruber is definitely salty about his clique of reviewer friends (and him, possibly) not getting an iPhone X

sorry 50 year old guys... turns out yung youtubers with 3 min videos and half a million followers are way more attractive to marketers than long form 20 page articles, who knew
lol gruber is so salty

saltier than when he switched from "ad blockers are not a problem if you have good content that readers respect" to "gently caress you marco your loving adblocker is blocking my loving ads you fucker"? possibly!

hes learning an important lesson in just where techbloggers rank in the hierarchy of people that 21st century consumer electronics powerhouse apple inc think are important

guys i am beginning to suspect that apple seeds early review units according to a strategy that will create the most positive buzz about their new product at launch, and not because the recipients "deserve" them or have a journalistic dedication to the truth

people are craving in-depth reviews! and they must be on launch day! they canít wait a few days before every publication and blogger gets their hands on one and then writes their review. apple has a responsibility to serious journalists, not just some bloggers youtubers, only they can get the clicks produce the thorough long form reviews that the public depends on to make their phone buying decisions.
those people who need a complete 17 part technical breakdown of the new iphone are definitely going to buy samsung anroids now because they had to wait an extra couple of days to get some nerds discourse on the individual camera sensors

bad move, apple

Because Iíve only had about 24 hours with the iPhone X, Iím in no position to write a review yet.

I was far from alone in not getting an extended period of time to test the phone before the review embargo lifted. Hereís what others are saying in their reviews.

A thought that crossed my mind this week: What would Apple have done if Walt Mossberg hadnít retired earlier this year?

when apple built their fancy new flagship waterfront apple store in chicago (the one whose roof is a giant flat macbook air) they apparently didnt consider that in chicago it sometimes snows and icicles form

so the entire area around the store is roped off because its a deathtrap right now

i read about palm quite a bit following the gruber post and they really had a high-quality original product. with better marketing they could have gone far
palm was ahead of the game on about three different levels in the early 2000s

the way they poo poo away that lead was truly spectacular

macos should also have been revised in a much better way, the osx switch was a hugely finicky task because it was so late that they had little choice but to take a very radical approach

apple tried at a resonable time (1988 iirc), but i don't really believe that the failure is a sign that it is not doable, just that they vacillated between too minor updates (what was actually released) and infighting over too unfocused and ambitious projects (pink)
apple had multiple efforts to update the classic mac os - taligent, pink, copland, gershwin. every single one of them ended up in a project death spiral. meanwhile the classic mac os got more and more obsolete and unstable because it was essentially in maintenance mode while everyone was working on the multiple, conflicting, doomed efforts at building its successor

amelio/spindler/late-sculley era apple was an almost unimaginable shitshow in every possible way

when people talk about palm loving itself to death theyre talking about how it managed to fumble away its almost unimaginable lead in the smartphone race by doing things like splitting itself into two companies (hardware and software), which led to huge delays internally (as the corp reorganzied itself), huge brand confusion, and a collapse in their reputation for quality (shipping palm treo phones running winmo5 will do that). eventually they gave up and merged the two companies again (creating delays and further muddling the brand)

palm also demonstrated the first ever netbook (the foleo) and had a potentially huge advantage in that space (when netbooks were the next big hotness) and then they cancelled it before making any

i will give them credit for realizing that the iphone was a game changer and they needed to radically redo their entire product line to meet it, which was unlike microsoft (ballmer openly laughed at it) or rim (thought it was a gyspy illusion, fought back by shipping the storm), and webos is still being borrowed from for its ui. too bad they were out of money and time and market power to make ir successful (those weird-rear end ads didnt help either)

I understand why amazon has gone with the flea market approach, human labor in retailing is expensive but holy crap they're doing such a bad job

real stores do planograms to place every single item, amazon's like "here's a big pile of stuff, hope you buy something!"
amazons ongoing success is really remarkable given the fact that actual user experience for searching for things and shopping on their website is a complete tire fire
