Do people know that words have meanings? It’s starting to seem like they don’t. First a pundit has trouble realizing “people” are the “people” he works with. Then we look at what you can say if you provide the qualifier that it “could” be true (practically anything). Finally, has anyone seen this thing we made up?

Zzzzzzzzzz

The Macalope is coming to the conclusion that Business Insider’s Jay Yarow is possibly just tired of his job.

Rumors have Apple announcing a larger iPhone this fall, which naturally means doom for Apple.

Wait, what?

“A supersize iPhone is a big risk for Apple” (tip o’ the antlers to @JonyIveParody).

When evidence crops up that runs counter to your assertions, what do you do? Reevaluate your position and think maybe, just maybe, you were coming at it out of emotion rather than based on the evidence?

Haha. You are so adorably naïve.

No! Of course the thing to do is to double down!

Apple forged a big alliance with IBM this week, and you know what that means: total fail. Meanwhile, iPhone users are mindless slaves to an inferior platform (no surprise there) and the iPhone 6 is doomed if it doesn’t have a bigger screen.

So, pretty much business as usual.

Big deal

9to5Mac has the “news,” but the Macalope must warn you: It might be too horrible to behold.

“KGI: 5.5-inch iPhone 6 likely to be delayed until after October, possibly until 2015”

NOOOOOOOOOOOO. But … but … the Macalope needs his iPhablet now! Because the screen’s bigger! Well, perhaps he’ll just switch to Android if Apple can’t bring rumored products to market when they’re rumored to be coming to market!

Writing for SlashGear, Don Reisinger shows he’s still the master of conventional wisdom.

“What does iPhone 6 need to restore Apple’s innovation crown?” (tip o’ the antlers to @JonyIveParody).

Apple was once the king of innovation.

Everywhere the Macalope looks this week he sees missed opportunities. Mobile platforms could have better accessibility options, and advocates could try targeting companies other than just Apple. Conversations about wearables, meanwhile, should probably not start from the presumption that Microsoft will own the category. Finally, posting a loose conversation about diversity at Apple was probably not a good idea.

Responsible parties

By now you’ve surely heard about how Android is “winning” (offer valid only in terms of market share, void where prohibited). So, naturally, when there is a problem with modern smartphone technology, all the onus falls on Google to fix the problem and hahahahaha are you new here?
