Lodsys is back and the Macalope has the tonic. Then Apple followers give Microsoft some constructive criticism on Windows 8 because we care.
It's great being an Apple fan. There are so many non-Apple fans who are looking out for your well-being!
Indie developers are attacked by patent trolls! Mac users are attacked by the Mac Defender Trojan! Straw men are attacked by ZDNet and PCWorld! It's Rapture time!
That company that we used to get all worked up about is back and spending like a drunk sailor. It's not relevant enough to get in trouble with the government anymore, but according to analysts, upcoming Windows-based tablets are totally gonna rock!
Three tales of partial truths! First, PCWorld tries to dispel the supposed myth of exclusive iOS apps (good luck with that). Then ZDNet assumes Mac users are babes in the woods and, finally, do white iPhones need to lay off the donuts?
Business Insider's Henry Blodget wants to know why you're not outraged about iPhone tracking. The Macalope, meanwhile, wants to know why you're not outraged about Henry Blodget. But silly pundits do learn sometimes!
Guess who's in Dellnial? (Yeah, it's Dell.) And can we turn up the crazy on the iPhone tracking scandal? Maybe to 11? Finally, stop ragging on the PlayBook, you guys!
Uh-oh, guess which budding Canadian tablet manufacturer needs an intervention? Uh, right. RIM. First guess. Computerworld commits a logical fallacy and so do silly pundits who think Android market share means iOS doom.
"Android versus iOS is the same as Windows versus the Mac" is the argument that never knows when to die! Meanwhile, the mad scientists at RIM struggle to bring the Playbook to life. And "open" is like rock and roll man! It never dies! Even when it does.
Another year, another collection of awful Apple commentary. The Macalope presents the worst of the worst for 2011.
An entire Macalope column devoted to one silly pundit? Oh, you know it's going to be bad. And it's bad.
The Macalope comes not to praise the Zune or the music business, but to bury them. And the tablet war is going so bad for everyone not Apple, pundits are starting a draft.
The Macalope turns his horns on more silly iPad coverage than you can shake a stick at...most of it coming from one guy! And has this madman infected Walt Mossberg?
The iPad 2 is here to kick behinds and take names, but some people still don't seem to be watching the same fight. For some reason RIM seems to want to fight with PlayBook developers and publishers are fighting with Apple--but maybe not for the reason everyone thinks.
The Macalope faces off against the tech paparazzi, Motorola Xoom lovers, and wraps things up with a surprisingly tender love letter.
