Autumn Leaves

IMG_2265I’m enjoying the flood of articles bashing the new iPhones/Apple Watch/Apple Pay in the same way I enjoy the autumn leaves. In a week or two, they’re all gone (until the next product launch). Because it’s really hard to write these when most of the people sitting around you in Starbucks has an Apple device in their hands.

Gene Munster, an analyst with Piper Jaffray, predicts Apple will sell 92 million new iPhones by the end of the year.

Oh, sure, you can get a little mileage from the “Apple people are sheep” trope but that wears quickly. No, this is the sweet spot when the parody videos can go a little bit viral and the tech pundits can gather in basements to make fun of the guys who got dates to the prom.
