...because Misanthropy is FUN
bynkii
  • 01:34 Just checked, Retrospect 8 will in fact support our tape library #
  • 01:43 Dear people surprised at the auto bailout being stuck in "low gear"...did you think that... #
  • 01:43 ...throwing billions at Detroit would do fuck-all for sales? people are not going to buy new fucking cars in a shit economy. #
  • 01:43 what part of this don't you understand. #
  • 07:44 @flargh Fuck Canon, it's overrated, and really, who cares. Canon gave us tripe like Voyager #
  • 07:52 @darxmac yes, yes it was #
  • 09:43 is very pleased with my latest AE/SE team from Apple. They are doing the whole "client relations/responsiveness" thing right #
  • 09:48 I'm done being nice to fucking idiots who think CES = Uber-Macworld Expo #
  • 10:06 @GreyAreaUK oh they may be at CES in some low-key form, but a big-assed booth and a non-exclusive Keynote? Riiiight #
  • 10:06 @jaberg I've been being marginally polite #
  • 10:09 @jearle what, you're doing generic news that applies for any situation? #
  • 13:13 @DaveHamilton not surprisingly, the blaaghosphere LOVES CES, and HATES Macworld #
  • 13:14 @DaveHamilton up to a point. Blaahgers have a place, but not at the expense of the people the show is really for #
  • 13:15 @DaveHamilton the Dorkosphere are interested in nothing but their own self importance & entitlement, which is why CES is a good fit for them #
  • 13:15 @jearle yeah...Paris might actually give you a hummer. iLounge isn't even good for that #
  • 13:17 @ShawnKing on the other hand, Vendors won't have Apple doing all the PR buzz work for them, & will have to do more than just show up #
  • 13:18 @jsnell god, I hope not at a CES level. It's hard enough having a decent conversation without a horde of idiots doing podcasts in the way #
  • 13:19 Blaahgers are like Technohobos: They want endless handouts and toys, but won't do a fucking thing worthwhile to earn it. #
  • 13:20 @ShawnKing @DaveHamilton of course Vendors will say yes. As annoying as Blaaghers are, they have the illusion of Free PR #
  • 13:20 @DaveHamilton @ShawnKing I say illusion, because they only seem like they have this incredible reach.... #
  • 13:21 @ShawnKing @DaveHamilton ...when in fact, it's really a small, incestuous technocirclejerk. Look how many sites do nothing but repeat PR #
  • 13:22 the danger in playing to the blaaghers is that they don't WANT "common people" at their show. They want it to be all for & about them #
  • 13:23 but it's the wide range of attendees that gives Macworld its strength. Not a lot of grandparents and families at CES #
  • 13:23 @GlennF But Scoble lives on #
  • 13:24 @GlennF *exactly*. There is nothing at CES of any use or interest to me, or anyone else who's not a reseller, or full-time press #
  • 13:25 @Angry_Drunk oohhhh....that could be fun..."CHALLMERS! Bring the elephant gun, and freshen my highball, I see a herd of fat ones!" #
  • 13:26 @DaveHamilton only if the people you're selling to read the blogs. It's easy to forget just how limited blogs are. #
  • 13:26 @DaveHamilton the *vast* majority of home users don't care about tech blogs #
  • 13:27 @DaveHamilton Which is why CES doesn't exist for them #
  • 13:28 @GlennF @ShawnKing I'd definitley love to see MW have the community more directly involved with the show, now that Crazy Uncle Apple is gone #
  • 13:28 @ShawnKing @GlennF Gruber for the 2010 keynote! #
  • 13:30 @DaveHamilton the schmuck in the local paper here gives better buying advice than your average blog #
  • 13:31 @DaveHamilton To a lot of people if it's not on the first page of an Amazon search or Best Buy.com, it doesn't exist. #
  • 13:31 @DaveHamilton hell, even MY relatives think tech begins and ends at Wal-Mart and Best Buy #
  • 13:33 @DaveHamilton Google Juice and Blogs only get you eyeballs in the community that knows how to use them. That's a really small group #
  • 13:33 @ShawnKing Summer in SF is great. Not real hot, cool nights #
  • 14:02 @DaveHamilton it's not a case of like. Google rankings only work if people search correctly #
  • 14:03 @DaveHamilton there's a LOT of consumers who don't just google for info on a product. That's what AMazon/Best Buy/Wal-mart are for #
  • 14:03 @danfrakes that's why blaahgers like CES: no Proles to get in the way #
  • 14:04 @paulkent excellent. MW 2010 should have the Gruber Track. All Gruber. All Day. #
  • 14:05 @Angry_Drunk yeah, I mean...ass...mouth...oh, wait, the OTHER kind of ATM.. #
  • 14:05 @paulkent I'm not saying ignore them/deny them. But CES is just insane with the entitlement #
  • 14:06 @paulkent although without Asshole Uncle Apple, things HAVE to be easier with regard to media handling #
  • 14:06 @paulkent I love how many NMDs get excluded by your media qualifications. You don't know how hot that makes you #
  • 14:08 @paulkent I hit it too. The DHCP setup was just not able to handle the number of nodes #
  • 14:08 @paulkent have you NEVER heard me go mushy for Zeppelin and The Donnas? #
  • 14:09 @danfrakes that was my impression too. Makes me wonder who iDouchbagLounge talked to #
  • 14:11 Oh thank $DEITY$, Mini DisplayPort is part of the DisplayPort 1.2 spec. Will have no effect on teh whinz0rz #
  • 14:16 @chuq John C. Welch: The "C" stands for Cranky #
  • 14:23 @DaveHamilton oh that was just mean dude. So very mean. Drummers are mean people. Mean, mean, mean people. #
  • 14:24 @mdeatherage ah...it happened to hit one of my feeds, and of course, the actual article was 5 lines long #
  • 16:42 let the chaostards begin #
  • 16:44 today brings a special irony to all the MacMacs screaming "OMGWTFKHAAAAAAAAAN!!!!" #
  • 16:45 @ibvanmat it's unsurprising. Pancreatic cancer is a bitch to treat, even the "good" kind #
  • 17:06 @Angry_Drunk Yeah, and they should all be the stars of a "When Dolphins Attack Your Ass" video too #
  • 17:07 Hey Intarweb Douches, how about we be fucking sane here? tinyurl.com/92kdws #
  • 17:08 @mdeatherage oh I know, and I agree. But we both know, facts never stopped anyone #
  • 17:09 @ShawnKing what, you're supposde to assume iLounge ISN'T a bunch of lamer NMDs? #
  • 17:09 @chuq exactly. it's not like Steve has personally had every good idea Apple came up with for the last 11 or so years #
  • 17:10 @ActiveSkip thank you, and @mmchargue for the correct things to say on this #
  • 17:11 @DaveHamilton however, keep in mind that under his original tenure, the Mac was doing really, really bad. #
  • 17:11 @DaveHamilton it's original major success happened under Sculley #
  • 17:12 @mdeatherage yep. It's also possible that Apple was waiting *to be sure* about what should happen next #
  • 17:14 @ShawnKing he's invloved with a few things at a low level. Other stuff, not so much. Steve ain't approving Open Directory changes #
  • 17:15 @iLounger Don't you have an iPhone case to jizz on? Funny how you are pushing the expo that hates "common" people & blows bloggers, isn't it #
  • 17:16 @iLounger you SO do not want to get into it with me. You have no fucking influence over me, so go back and play with your blaaagher friends #
  • 17:17 @ShawnKing right, and there are things he's heavily involved with, but it's not everything by a long shot #
  • 17:17 @Angry_Drunk someone needs to explain to iLounge that I'm not really nice to NMDs #
  • 17:19 @ShawnKing see? when it comes to the things I really care about, Steve's not even a factor, and sometimes, a bit of a hindrance #
  • 17:20 @alwillis dude, it's going to be two hours of lame panicing. You could bring naked women and beer, and no one would notice #
  • 17:25 @diskgrinder BWAAAHAHAAHAHAHAAHAA #
  • 17:46 @ShawnKing excellent news. If the stock market doesn't completely flip the fuck out over this, then it's just the blogtards #
  • 17:47 @arekdreyer Dude, it's MAC NN, of COURSE it's useless #
  • 17:47 @grobertson hit him again! #
  • 17:47 So much for Scoble's Frogurt Diagnosis #
  • 17:48 @Ihnatko Sal is indeed a stylish man #
  • 17:49 @malfunction54 exactly. If Jobs personally approved that shitpile, I'd have kicked him in his cancer LONG ago #
  • 17:51 I'm not even going to look at the comments on Macworld's story about Jobs. I'm cranky enough as it is. #
  • 17:52 @chuq or they were waiting to see what would really happen. It can take a while to nail down a course of treatment in such cases #
  • 17:52 @chuq however, using a Frogurt worker as a source, for good or ill, was dumb #
  • 17:53 @aulia nah. To be honest, I never noticed he was out at all. #
  • 17:53 @jonfingas or that maybe you can't tell if someone's fine by looking at them #
  • 17:54 @jsnell Montalban will always be Khan to me, and kudos for using that line. It still gives me shivers #
  • 18:11 @nadyne luckily, I rarely read it anyway! #
  • 18:11 @nadyne misanthropy FTW! #
  • 18:12 @dmoren you're surprised? Dude, I'm shocked! #
  • 18:13 @chuq For me, it's "From Hell's Heart...I Stab at thee. For hate's sake, I spit my last breath at thee.." Hokey, but man, he made them real #
  • 18:27 @Ihnatko oh thank you andy , thank you so very much for that bit of sanity in all of this #
  • 18:33 @mdeatherage okay, you're sane :-P #
  • 19:28 @chuq @GlennF the best was TM profanity. For some reason, "Cocksucker" was very amusing when mangled by that engine #
  • 19:29 @paulkent you know, they released a Taser/SHotgun combo... #
  • 19:46 @nadyne @paulkent I had froyo with Steve in December. Then we did some kickboxing, and rolled a couple of Oracle execs & took their wallets #
  • 19:55 @nadyne it was Steve's idea. He said Oracle execs were all like Ellison, all talk, no hat, and they WERE...that shit paid for the strippers! #
  • 20:12 @blatherskyte: Dude, the Air Curve RULES. That's the neatest thing I've seen in a while #
  • 20:15 Random IMs from idiots are the BEST #
  • 20:25 @ejacqui have you seen tool academy and that teen idol one? #
  • 20:26 @mdeatherage goddamnit, you broke my brain #
  • 20:31 @mdeatherage IZ NAWT! #
  • 20:36 @ejacqui Reality show HEAVEN #
  • 21:00 @dlpasco or a goat getting fisted by a koala #
  • 21:52 @danfrakes BAAAHAAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHA #
  • 22:09 @blatherskyte it's a cool as hell acoustic trick. we sat there for an hour putting the iPhone in, taking the iPhone out #
  • 22:09 @blatherskyte just marveling at the sound difference #
  • 22:20 @paulkent @SlyM well of COURSE he liked the SVH, he has taste #
  • 22:25 @paulkent keep playing the Skynrd dude...and moar zeppelin please #
  • 22:29 @paulkent woohoo! #
  • 22:41 @paulkent #
  • 22:41 @paulkent "No QUarter" dude...it's got a little everything...guitar, keyboards, you name it #
  • 22:42 @paulkent and "The Crunge" 'cause it's got da funk #
  • 22:44 dear people bitching about MW being not free...did you really think it's a charity? #
  • 23:04 @Angry_Drunk but which ones are the lolbertarians? #
