An analyst might try to make a point one way or the other as to whether it's a good thing that Apple is now creating reality television. But...

So why is Apple doing it? Anyone? Gruber? Gruber? Gruber?

After watching the promo I thought at least Gruber would have the honesty to talk about how fucking shit it is.

From the name to everything else in the production, it is cheap and derivative. It's a shit cheaper clone of Shark Tank, for fucks sake!

This combined with the promo of the SPIN-OFF of the Carpool Karaoke segment from The Late Late Show show an Apple that is 100% clueless and throwing money at garbage in TV entertainment.

Jesus, Gruber. Maybe he is holding out a fantasy for Apple money for his own show or something.

It's funny, Cue was talking about how they want to inject "culture" into shows and they can only do that by creating their own...and then they come out with two derivative reality shows. And they're not even on their "TV" platform. wtf.

As a shareholder, call me in 3 months and I'll let you know if this was a worthwhile endeavor.

If I get richer, then it's good; otherwise, this sucks.

To Be Fair:
What was that thing about Apple saying "no" and "curating" superior experiences?

I believe Gruber once said that Apple was not a computer company or a software company, but rather an "experience" company. I guess that includes shitty experiences.

Also I thought Gruber liked to crow about how Apple has "taste".

Welcome to Donald Trump's America.

This would never have happened if Hillary was elected, or Steve Jobs were alive.

Planet of the Apps is going to make America great again!

Tim Cuck 2020!

Apple has always provided "shitty experiences" through iTunes, including music, apps and movies that are awful. It's just a little weird that Apple is funding the production now.

I'm really hoping they'll do a telenovela next.

John Rodham Gruber:
Why can't Gruber grow a pair and say what we all know to be true, that Eddy Cue should have been fired years ago. This is only further evidence of that fact.

John Rodham Gruber:
>I see a lot of griping on Twitter that Planet of the Apps looks corny / phony / cheesy / whatever. Of course it does. This is mainstream reality TV.

Almost missed this nugget of wisdom. Gruber really will bend over backwards to excuse anything Apple does. If Apple had produced a flip-phone instead of the original iPhone as it was introduced, would he have excused it as "I see a lot of griping that the iPhone looks like shit. Of course it does. This is mainstream mobile telephony?"

"This is mainstream reality TV."

Does Gruber defend Trump's mainstream reality TV the same way?

Of course not. because Gruber is making a piss poor indefensible argument. I expect nothing less from a cuck like Gruber.
