The Macalope Daily: Letting their imaginations run away with them
By The Macalope
Patience is apparently not a singular virtue of the techno-pundit class, a thesis that the Macalope will propose to you in three acts.
Act 1: The Phantom Letter, IN 3D!
The Boy Genius Report’s Zach Epstein (he of
the love letter to Windows 8) warns that
“Apple could be in hot water over ‘iTV.’” “iTV,” as the Macalope’s willowy yet sturdy readers know, is the rumored name of Apple’s equally rumored television set. Said rumored name is also the actual name of a British television network, which Epstein says has sent a sternly worded warning to Apple about its trademark concerns.
Aside from not mentioning Siri at all, the Macalope was surprised to find that this post lacked the ever-important user poll. Apparently, Miller is content to let readers register their valuable opinions about the merits of rumored specifications on a yet-to-be-announced device in comments. Like a bunch of suckers! What, did budget cutbacks at ZDNet force them to cancel their subscription to Survey Monkey?
Whatever the case, we know one thing for sure: It’s out of the question to wait for a device to actually be announced before we consider whether or not it’s worth purchasing.
[Editors’ Note: In addition to being a mythical beast, the
Macalope is not an employee of Macworld. As a result, the Macalope is always free to criticize any media organization. Even ours.]
