Heh, he can't even sell out during Apple events anymore. John Gruber has peaked.

DF's been holding the price at $8000, probably out of principle. When will it drop?

> John Gruber has peaked.
I thought that was obvious. I would say peak Gruber must've been around the time he was invited to be a guest on Charlie Rose

Impending Apple event and the fucker's last 50 posts are about 99% Give Me Money/Endorsements.

Vesper / verb: to go down in flames with the smoothness of a wet paper airplane.

I thought he was selling them for above $9K before hand.

Not surprised the price is dropped. That shit isn't worth it.

>That includes this current week (which is showing higher than usual traffic, thanks to next week’s Apple event)

Something about this doesn't seem right. It seems like Gruber has gone begging for sponsors more than usual lately.

Hell he even had Microsoft as a sponsor the other week.

If traffic is so high why so many openings for sponsorship? Especially with a fall Apple event coming.

That doesn't explain it. He was charging more last summer but pretty booked:

I find it funny that there isn't a single Apple Store in the entire country of Ireland.

Why is that?

There's not enough people in Dublin and its surrounding areas to support an Apple - Dublin location (remember they dropped the 'Store')?

Dublin city proper is over 500,000. Include the Greater Dublin Area and its over 1.9 million people.

My town has about 200,000 people and we have an Apple Store. There are less than 400,000 people in my entire county. Within an hours drive there are 4 or 5 additional Apple Stores off the top of my head.

Why no retail location in Dublin or anywhere in Ireland?

Couldn't be for tax purposes could it? Serious question.
