Tera Thomas O’Brien’s history lesson:
Students of history will know about nattering nabobs of negativism, a phrase used by former Vice President Spiro Agnew to members of the media, circa 1970-ish.
Yes, nabobs still exist.
Nabobs are nameless and negative members of the press, now memorialized in digital form, but still spouting worthlessness to unsuspecting readers.
O’Brien outlines the nabob‘s negative view on Apple’s new iPhones and Watch models and concludes with this:
In 2017 the new iPhones did not sell out, ipso facto and alakazam– sales must be anemic. Oh. Wait. Maybe sales are just fine but Apple increased production of the new iPhone models so they would be available instantly, knowing all the while that iPhone X would be a little later to the premium party.
Seems plausible to me. Drop by an Apple Store and see the iPhone 8’s camera and screen.
