Who puts anal back in analyst better than Rob Enderle, half of the husband and wife team of Microsoft shills and The Enderle Group?
Not content to simply blog about Windows and collect money from Microsoft and unsuspecting IT folks in need of a consultant to help them justify Microsoft as their platform of choice, Enderle decided once again to Piss on Apple™ for fun and profit.
This time he says Apple’s CEO Tim Cook is no Meg Whitman (thank God for that). And Apple is out of step with reality. And the iPad will burn you. And the iPad is a penis iron (not that there’s anything wrong with that). And iPad users actually use the 4G LTE data plans they pay for. Fast.
Why did Rob say all those nasty things? Because it’s good for his career. What career?
Enderle is the Rush Limbaugh of independent IT bloggers, full of fluff and bluster and bombastic statements that get everyone who reads his cruft in a tizzy (which is what happens just before your hair catches on fire; so, be forewarned).
Here’s the problem. I have it on good authority that Rob Enderle, the male half of The Enderle Group, the same guy with an opinion on all things Apple though he’s never used an Apple product (he’s obviously paid by Microsoft to shill all things Windows), is actually– here it comes– a plumber.
Rob Enderle is a plumber?
My sources tell me that Enderle has always wanted to be a tech guru, and pines for companies to pay him for all the drivel he spews out each day (like advertisers pay for Rush Limbaugh to do the same; even though Limbaugh is an avowed Mac and iPad user).
The problem is this. There’s not much money in blogging these days, especially for Windows apologists. And Microsoft has been cutting back on staff.
Enderle is caught between the crack of a rock and a hard spot. So to speak. He can’t make a living shilling Microsoft or pretending to be an IT guru. He makes a little money by writing nasty things about Apple because that guarantees a large advertising payday for the suspect publications that publish his drivel.
And, apparently, he’s a full time plumber. Here’s a surveillance photo of Enderle sporting his official plumbers t-shirt, and apparently Enderle working on the plumbing of an IT client.
My sources discovered that his wife Mary answers the phone, schedules appointments, and orders parts, while Rob does the dirty work.
At night, Rob practices his first love, creative writing; mostly fiction. But, by day, everything indicates that Enderle is a practicing plumber.
Why would one expose Enderle’s true profession? As an investigative journalist, we owe it to the public to point out that all is not what it seems in the secret world of IT bloggers, Microsoft shills, and Apple haters.
