Stories like this are why Gruber is described as a blogger and not a writer or journalist.

I kept waiting for a bullet point that didn't point out something blindingly obvious. Of course they're not calling it iPhone 10. Who on earth thought they actually would?

YEAH! Show those Roman numerals who's boss. About time someone told the truth about those things.

October 2016:

>I wouldn’t be surprised if Apple never even mentions next year that 2017 is the 10th anniversary of the original iPhone. And if they do mention it, I think it will be a brief passing reference on stage,

>I’ll enjoy a nice serving of homemade claim chowder if Apple goes and names next year’s iPhone the “iPhone 10” and makes the anniversary central to its branding.

Today:

>Yes, I know, it’s the 10th anniversary of the original iPhone, and Apple is going to celebrate that in several ways in today’s event.

Well Gruber certainly has his bases covered an can't be wrong.

Holy fuck. I didn't realize how much Gruber and I think alike.

Then again, maybe I AM Gruber.

"Craig Federighi now on stage to present iPhone X. It's pronounced "ten," by the way."

Imp:
Damn. Don't I look like an idiot. Calling it "ten" is weird.

Gruber F. Johnson:
>Apple could easily call future models iPhone X2, X3, etc. That sounds pretty cool.

That sounds pretty fucking stupid, like something Samsung or HTC would do. Glad Gruber was completely wrong about this.

Gruber the Booger:
Poor Federighi

He's the only one who suffered demo fail.

"Swipe up it's just that eas... woah let's go to the backup."

John Gruber can never be wrong about anything ever.

Whatever John says is cool is fucking cool.

>Apple could easily call future models iPhone X2, X3, etc. That sounds pretty cool.


>Racer X was cool as shit.


>Roman numerals are fucking stupid.

Which is it?

Was it just me, or did Tim and the crew seem strangely low-key and demoralized during the keynote? Still smarting from that massive leak, perhaps? They barely even smiled.

Cook: **Ten** years later, it is only fitting that we are here, in this place, on this day, to reveal a product that will set the path for technology for the next decade.

Cook: "This is iPhone **Ten**."

That's just how they are. Ahrendts was especially painful. There's just nothing like a Stevenote and Steve ain't around anymore.

ass:
I already forgot that Ahrendts was on stage. She seems like a c-word.

I'm surprised that someone with such class and such love for graphic design and typography can call Roman Numerals "fucking stupid". I'm rebooting my opinion on JG.

People here in the hands-on area are already pronouncing it “ex”. Even spoke to one Apple employee who said “ex”.

It's funny, "roman numerals are fucking stupid" is something you'd expect to hear from some intolerant bigot like Trump, someone with no historical perspective or openness to other cultures (past or present). "Cuz they're obviously just stupid".

>> Huh?

Well, apart from his decidedly lowbrow taste in movies, he's got fairly good tastes, I'd say.

Such "good tastes" he thought this was a great presidential candidate:
