Apple Guilty Of Racial Profiling?

June 7th, 2010 | 1 comment | Posted by Jen

Politico’s Ben Smith reports NY Attorney General Andrew Cuomo is looking into claims that two Apple stores in New York refused to sell the iPad to customers of Chinese descent because of smuggling fears. Because the iPad, though produced in China, is unavailable there. (Chinese gadget-freaks will have to settle for the knockoff iPed, for now.) Cuomo’s office was alerted after NY Assemblywoman Grace Meng (D-Flushing) publicly complained last month that several of her Chinese American constituents were asked to show their passports or asked inappropriate questions while shopping for iPads.

Which means…APPLE IS THE NEW ARIZONA???

Not cool, Apple. Not. Cool.

Apple FTW

May 27th, 2010 | 3 comments | Posted by Jen

On Wednesday, Apple’s market cap moved past Microsoft’s by $3 billion, which had CNN Money declaring Microsoft “no longer the industry’s alpha dog.”

CNN Money interviewed a couple experts on what Microsoft had to do to continue keeping up with the Jobses, with one analyst suggesting:

“They have to continue to try to find other businesses, otherwise growth is always going to be bound by the PC market. Wall Street believes in Apple because Apple continues to put out new products that capture the imaginations of the press and tech pundits. Microsoft just hasn’t been able to come up with a new multi billion dollar business like Apple.”

And while we’re no experts, we are a target demo, as the owners of about a dozen Apple products between us, so here’s another suggestion:

How To Get Olds To Embrace The iPad

April 23rd, 2010 | 4 comments | Posted by Jen

They say the iPad’s target demo is 18-34, but that’s likely to go up after the olds see this video of master pianist and bedhead-giver Lang Lang playing an encore–Rimsky-Korsakov’s “Flight of the Bumblebee”–on it:

Cats, dogs, little children, old people…who doesn’t the iPad entertain? How is that possible? Did Steve Jobs make a deal with the devil? Or is Steve Jobs the devil?

My bank account says yes. But my heart says WANT.

Fine, iWant It

Dear Technology God,

I’ve been fighting the iPad.

I said I didn’t need it. I said it wasn’t necessary. I said it was just an $800 splurge for Apple geeks to jerk off to. I said it was a poor-sighted man’s iPhone. Even that hilarious Modern Family episode couldn’t sway me.

I almost convinced myself, too. I think I believed me when I said those things.

But then I saw Iggy the cat playing with a new iPad.





He’s so cute! And he LOVES the iPad! If Iggy gets one, I want one. Please gimme!

Please!!!!!!! PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Amen,
Diana

Thanks, Tina!
