Wonderful response to Brett Arends’ most recent attack on Apple’s most recent, and stellar, financial report. Arends is the same guy who attacked Apple’s iPhone in 2007 while trumpeting Verizon’s V-Cast service:
Let’s get one thing clear. The iPhone isn’t the future. It isn’t a revolutionary mobile device ushering in a new era.
45-million customers and billions in profit later, Arends returns to his bashing ways, only to be bashed by Daniel Eran Dilger:
Arends wasn’t out to get the iPhone just because he had a sketchy understanding of the new device and no capacity for visualizing the future. He was simply disgorging propaganda fed to him by Verizon troll Roger Entner of “IAG Research,” a group that represents the interests of Microsoft of mobile phone companies, which are all listed on the ‘research’ group’s clients page.
In other words, the Wall Street Journal blogger is paid to be wrong.
