Why Apple rumors are bad

March 7, 2012

Apple’s new iPad which will be announced March 7 2012 is sure to be a crowd pleaser and many people will buy it. There have been a lot of rumors surrounding this and other Apple product launches. Tech sites clammer for this information just like a baby wants to be feed. It’s utterly ridiculous if you ask me. For one you are making stuff up which is stupid. Second, your leading other people to believe and get their hopes up about the next product. Third when the next product is revealed and it doesn’t have what you thought it would your disappointed. Great example; the iPhone 4S was supposed to be called the iPhone 5, have a new design better camera all this stuff. Well, when Apple revealed the new iPhone (oh wait for it) people were disappointed. Why, easy not just because it was the same form factor as the iPhone 4 however, that’s one of the main reasons the other is that people’s expectations were shattered. In a total reversal the  iPhone 4S was a huge success selling out within twenty-four hours. Why? I’m really not sure but, people try to guess what Apple is doing STOP! It’s a vicious cycle that will kill you every single time you do it. Be happy with what they put out and don’t try to guess because then who looks like the idiot? Something to think about isn’t it?

Why Apple is not responsible for Foxconn Scandal

March 6, 2012

It’s been a while but I’m back baby! Yeah schools been keeping me in lockdown, but enough about that. I want to talk about Apple for a minute.

If you haven’t been following the news well, shame on you and if you have good job. But, for those of you who haven’t or don’t follow tech news let me fill you in. You’ve probably heard of a company called Apple. Yeah the company that makes the cool iPod Touch you are holding in your hand right now. Well, maybe holding in your hand right now. No, well oh just forget it. My point is Apple is well known for the iPod, iPhone and Mac computers. Recently however the media and tech blog and news sites in general have gotten a hold of something that is totally deciduous. Yes, it’s true that Foxconn has had some problems. Yes, Apple could do more than the bare minimum to make things better. However, I have to argue look at it this way. The people in China are living it up in Foxconn. Do your research in China and you’ll find out that most of the country is in poverty and that there is no middle class system for chinese people to even think about moving up. Foxconn gives the average chinese adult a chance at a better life. We as americans think that where they live at is bad. The living conditions are like military style and dorm room style put together. Basically you have a few people sharing a dorm. Which again to our standards of living is not the best idea situation. Again the chinese people are better off and like it there. Foxconn is a step up for a lot of chinese adults. I agree that Apple could do more than just check the situation and not just slap Foxconn managers and the chinese government on the wrist but let’s face it, Apple is going to do what they want when they want and how they want because it’s Apple, and nobody is going to tell them otherwise.

If you look at this situation from a logical perspective and get your head out of the iCloud (no pun intended) then you’ll see it’s not Apple’s responsibility to do anything about Foxconn. China’s government needs to step in and deal with the situation. Not Apple, your always going to have things that can be done with Apple products, services what have you but, for Apple to deal with something from another country? No, I’m sorry that’s the Chinese governments job not Apple’s.
