Okay, sure, it's a "touch screen" but it's hardly "such a screen" as Amazon's.

Who does Gruber hate more? Trump or Gurman?

This is a real fuckin stretch, Grubs. Ctrl+F on https://www.apple.com/homepod/ finds no match for "screen". They mention touch but barely:

"Responds to your touch, too. Tap the top of HomePod to play, pause, or adjust the volume. The top also shows you when Siri is listening, with an LED waveform that animates with your every word."

Has Gurman ever commented on how much Gruber hates him?

One other thought, Grubs can say the whole point of the 'piece' was to say that Cook deserves praise for doubling down on secrecy, yet Grubs is practically praising Kuo for getting the scoop more correct than Gurman, so it was really just a hit piece on Gurman.

Right, so they're basically both right (or at least not wrong).

It is painfully obvious that Gruber is is hate-obsessed with Gurman. IT is weird and bizarre and probably unhealthy.

Maybe he gets Apple points every time he tries to diss him?

Doober can't mention Gurman without calling him Scoop Gurman and referring to his as "kid". Which is ironic, coming from a 40-something man-child.

Just when I thought Gruber couldn't be any more of a douchebag than he already is, he manages to top himself yet again.

What a fucking child.

This is the worst fucking "claim chowder" Gruber has ever "served up". What a fucking hack.

Get over your Gurman jealousy already, John.

I mean, for fuck's sake! Gruber's *own fucking embedded quote* here emphasizes the use case of *video calling*. And *this* is the context that Gurman says Apple's device won't have "such a screen".

Google Home has the ability to control these things by touch at the top, where the flashy lights are. Nobody says that has a screen.

Remember when Grubs had his 'little birdies'?

Where are they?

Where are they, Grubs?

A Trained Chimp:
The embedded quote doesn't say anything about video calling.

i never thought the *play-pause-next-volume change* touch surface on my cheap philips earphones could be considered as a touch screen.
