Jesus Christ. Tim Cook's Apple: Kindly get the fuck over yourself.

I am slowly beginning to agree with anti-Tim Cook sentiments. He seems to spend more time blabbing about how great Apple is than actually fucking doing anything great.

>real people, in real life.

As opposed to fake people, in fake life?

> Not through a screen.

Interacting through a screen is also a part of real life.

When you do a Facetime call with your wife, is she somehow not a real person anymore?

> They have spaces around the world where people can have interactions with real people, in real life. Not through a screen. Real life. Who else has that? I think taking that to the next level is what this “Today at Apple” program is all about.

I doubt it. Apple are famous for their prudishness.

Idiot. When you do a Facetime call with your wife, is it exactly the same experience as talking with her in person?

Don't be obtuse.

No, it's not. But that doesn't mean it isn't real life, or that she isn't a real person.

How is it "being obtuse" to address the actual words written by Gruber, instead of something completely different?

@To Be Fair:

Gruber's point was a little confusedly worded, but in no way was he saying that people you interact with through a screen are not real people. You're off on this.

Apparently Tim Cook and Grubnuts haven't been in an Apple Store in a few years. They're too crowded with loitering dolts—and they're too loud to hear a fucking thing.

Take the iPhone out of the stores and they'll be useful stores—though nowhere near as popular.

When Apple stores had theater seating, this might have made sense.

Now they give you wooden boxes to sit on and they're just full of people waiting for help to fix their phones. Not comfortable.

But that's exactly what he wrote. Are we supposed to just imagine him writing completely different things now?

He's often bragged about how he's very careful about what he writes, and is painstaking about being precise with his language.

stop being a pedant, you and everyone else know exactly what he meant. there are plenty of things about him to be critical of, but this isn't one of them.

Apple stores a victim of their own success, and are now vastly insufficient for the task. A three week wait for a genius bad appointment. Effectively useless.

your wife stopped being a real person when she became your wife.

She's your property now. not legally a person.

Of course not. She can't give me a handjob while talking to me via Facetime.

By the way, Microsoft stores have been offering classes for years... Not that I'm a fan of Microsoft, but let's not get all breathless about some continuing education night-school that Apple threw together.
