Oh God this is one of the greatest Fireball days ever. Grubs is becoming a spoof of himself and it's fucking hilarious.

Oh man I posted this before I saw the 3 other posts of Grubs bitching about who got a review unit. I love this.

Guess Apple got the hint Daring Fireball is irrelevant about two years after his advertisers did. Fun to see Gruber burn down his only bridge.

This is quite interesting.

>>the real review embargo has been lifted, and it turns out Apple gave reviewers only 24 hours between handing over the phone and lifting the embargo.

>>This is a carefully orchestrated "control the message" type of thing, and all the videos are practically identical, with the same limited number of talking points, all shot in the same fancy nondescript loft-like Apple Store (?) somewhere in New York City.

Oh I am *enjoying* this emensely.

I'm think I was right, the phone blows. Apple is doing this strategy to combat it.

FUCK immensely.

Ol Grubs is rubbing off on me.

> Nilay Patel details that while Face ID works quite well inside, it has issues outside in the sun or under fluorescent lighting. It regularly just wouldn't recognise his face in these environments.

Like I said, FaceID sucks (IR is hard in the sun), while TouchID is awesome.

Definitely waiting for the XS.

Are we witnessing the slow unraveling of the Grubester? In some ways, I feel bad for him. Daring Fireball has made him a lot of money, but I get the feeling those days will come to an end, perhaps abruptly. And joking aside, I wonder if his liver is holding up any better.

Good luck, Gruber! I hope you snap out of this bitter streak.

Grubology 101:
Of course they would seed it to someone intent on actually publishing something, not taking their good ol' time with the review, letting the experience settle in before writing about it, etc. It's called marketing.

This is making me laugh with how obvious Apple was trying to create buzz.

Also this kid from Ellen got one and Grubs didn't HAHAH.

What a whiny little bitch Gruber is.

Darling Felcherballs:
These reviews are saying FaceID only works when you hold the phone up as if to take a selfie - which is exactly how the iris scanner on the S8 works. That is pretty much instantaneous - but holding it up in just the right way every time turns out to be surprisingly irritating. I really miss the finger print scanner/home button in the S7.

But first let's talk about my next sponsor...:
To be fair, this kid did follow all the 4G blogs before anyone had 4G. He kinda earned this.
