Apple’s Ripe for Fall

Did Yolkin know that the title’s a pun in English? Well, in the original, “iZombie” was in English, as was “Apple” in the title, so, it’s a possibility…

31 August 2013. Taking a Stand… Retracting It Under Pressure… What NOT to Do

00 cowardly lion. 31.08.13

______________________________

Rav Sacks, the Chief Rabbi of the United Hebrew Congregations of the Commonwealth, said the following in 2011:

The consumer society was laid down by the late Steve Jobs coming down the mountain with two tablets, iPad one and iPad two, and the result is that we now have a culture of iPod, iPhone, iTune, i, i, i. When you’re an individualist, egocentric culture and you only care about ‘I’, you don’t do terribly well.

In a later statement, the Chief Rabbi’s office said:

The Chief Rabbi meant no criticism of either Steve Jobs personally or the contribution Apple has made to the development of technology in the 21st century.

Methinks that lawyers for Apple threatened Rav Sacks with a lawsuit (or big-time contributors held the lumber over him, which amounts to the same thing). The Cupertino Commandoes ARE that arrogant (so are big contributors). Rav Sacks should’ve stood his ground… his retraction nullified what was a perfectly-apt and spot-on observation. Isn’t there any courage and grit left today? One does wonder…

19 August 2012. Today was Apple Spas… Did You Eat Your Apple Today?

______________________________

In Russia, the Transfiguration is also known as Яблочний спас (Yablochny Spas: Apple Spas… Our Lord’s Apple Day). Nicky and I had our apple (a Golden Delicious) as we took a little motor today. Did you have yours? If not… for shame!
