  • Tim Cook wants Apple to buy Manchester United soccer team

    To address a point from Xed:
    (Well, two. I never said Tim was like Elon. I said just the opposite.) 

    But more importantly,
    ”Additionally, they are in need of a new stadium. If Apple gets their team(s) designing a stadium it very well cold become as iconic as its stores—perhaps to the point that you and I might go to see if we're ever in Manchester.”

    A clarification seems to be needed. Apple designers are amazing product designers but they’re not architects. The two fields are very different. Jony Ive did not design the new Apple headquarters, the architect Norman Foster did. Steve Jobs did not design the Cube on 5th Avenue in NY, that was the architectural firm of Bolin, Cywinski, Jackson.  Steve Jobs didn’t design the stair in the first Apple office building, that was the work of the architect I.M. Pei. Just to dispel some rumors I’ve heard over and over. Apple designers have not designed any Apple stores.

  • Kanye West confused about banks, Apple Pay, and FCC

    Of course he should run for president again. Those 250,000 people that voted for him last time want to see him do it again.  Don’t forget to get on the ballots, though!

  • Tim Cook wants Apple to buy Manchester United soccer team

    Please pardon my ignorance, but why?  “Explore unspecified opportunities”?  I know that Tim and Elon are polar opposites, but it sounds a lot like the decision to buy Twitter. Except that I don’t think Tim would immediately fire half the players!
    I don’t get it.

  • SUV crashes through Apple Store, kills one, injures many more

    And I thought it was too much that at an Apple Store near my hometown in California there’s always a police SUV parked in front with a police officer standing there. I wonder if this will cause Apple to do this in more places. Of course the right kind of bollards and/or planters would work too.

  • iPhone 15 rumored to have have more rounded corners

    And you said that Apple can’t innovate and bring big changes every year!
    How long until Samsung copies this, or makes fun of it in ads . . . or both!
