Yeah, Apple never fucks anything up.

This clown rakes in $8,000 a week and can't even be bothered to proofread his two sentence commentary.

That's not a Google bug. It's an NSA bug. Do you really not think that the NSA is tracking who's buying these things, and turning on the mics of the Homes purchased by persons of interest?

This is Stuxnet-level shit right here.

If this were Apple, and someone discovered a bug in their software, they would probably disable that feature while they explored a long-term fix. Oh, that's exactly what Google did. What's your point again, Gruber?

This sounds like a hardware bug though -- crappy button switch?

John hadn't updated the blog since Wednesday. Then this one typo-ridden post today. I think he's pretty much done with Daring Fireball.

"Do you really not think that the NSA is tracking who's buying these things, and turning on the mics of the Homes purchased by persons of interest?"

What person of interest to the NSA would buy something like this?

>What person of interest to the NSA would buy something like this?

Oh, I dunno, those who don't KNOW they are a person of interest to Trump's NSA? Which would mean pretty much anyone who isn't sucking his cock (figuratively or literally) on a daily basis.

>Trump's NSA

That's right, because the NSA wasn't interested in anyone before Donald Trump took office.

Bad commentators here. "Buttongate" would absolutely be a top news story if this was Apple.

The Point:
If Gruber's point was that Apple would be excoriated for a similar error, that point was lost in his cack-handed commentary.

Electrical contacts on a button accidentally engaging?

That's what Weinstein said.

Am I the only one who recalls Apple buttongate with the G4 Cube power button? You couldn't turn the Cube on, you couldn't turn it off, it would turn itself on or off if you reached for the CD...
