Am I the only one that reads this article as complete satire? I think the author is trying to make fun of all the pundits that want to "be the one" to predict a failing Apple product...
So...9 days is "pulls it quickly"? OMG, a job advert was pulled after a reasonable amount of time for somebody to have applied and been interviewed!!!!!!!
