as is Apple. The whole ecosystem feels like its contracting, though there still must be some momentum left

Not sure if Apple is dying or simply becoming Every Other Company. There's just no sparkle, excitement or vision.

Sponsorships have been at $8000 for about two weeks. What happens next?

I wonder what it's like to be Gruber. To know that the heyday of your life is over. Your "fame," popularity, riches, and mediocre looks have peaked and it's down from here.

We now know what Apple unveils for WWDC and their other launches before the dates are even announced. Apple's innovations are, to quote Gruber, "un-Apple-like." Their competitors are increasingly good. And your "niche" industry where you climbed to fame talking about underdog and industry leading products like iPod and Macbook Airs is now mainstream, and no one cares what you have to say.

Keep dropping the price, Gruber. Sip another martini. I hope you've stashed away some savings.

It was up to $9,500 in his heyday.

Success is a funny thing. Once you have it, you don't want to lose it.

Yeah, down to making slightly less ridiculously large amounts of money for doing nothing for the rest of his life. I'd take it.

Betcha within 2 yrs Gruber has a weekly tech column at his beloved NYT. He'll ride that dinosaur right into the asteroid crater.

I doubt that. Gruber could never muster up the effort to write a full column every week.
