Q*Bert:
• References to James Bond and Star Wars: nearly the same as article count
• Articles about fonts that no one cares about: 325
• Articles about the Yankees even though I'm kind of a Phillies fan but only when it's convenient: 1,212
• Double standards: 47,014
• Shocking readers with increasingly disturbing photos of self: 318
• Circle jerk linking with other elitist douchebags: 1,414,900
• Corny seasonal icons: 96
• Precious references to "yours truly": 892,617

But seriously, well done. Having a successful and lucrative Apple-centric blog for 15 years is no small achievement, others have tried and failed.

There's no way he has more 'full columns' than 'linked list entries' – he produces almost no original content.

I think it was actually much better when he referred to himself as “the Daring Fireball.”

I can't believe that gruber gets paid for writing about gruber, or that the muse for the artist that is gruber is gruber.

I miss the Gruber of old, particular his translations of PR speak to English. I liked him more before he became a smug asshole, and was instead a smartass asshole.

How many people could manage to run a successful Apple blog for 15 years and then express no gratitude whatsoever to his readership or the flukes of fate that helped him succeed. Such a fucking asshole. Good blog though.

When he turned into a smug, rich asshole is when this blog when downhill. His Apple commentary is great. His politics are terrible and unoriginal.
