None of this makes much sense.
Apple's influence on the industry drives some people nuts. But who's fault is it?
Don't take a short-term outlook.
Let's review what pundits said about the iPhone X.
The Macalope points out that wannabe pundits like to exaggerate out of all proportion.
How to be right and wrong at the same time.
Apple did well but failed to live up to every single fantasy analysts created.
How many people did you think were going to buy a $999 smartphone?
The iPhone X did not cause a global slowdown in the smartphone market.
Almost nobody is buying the $999 phone other than the people buying it.
More rumors of cuts to part orders.
The Macalope will thank you not to disrespect his favorite iPhone.
Units was probably not the metric Apple was shooting for.
Android OEMs may be lying about the software patches they've delivered.
Let's at least complain about the HomePod correctly.
