You know better, this is inexcusable:
If Gruber’s going to call Lynch a bozo, if you’re going to double and treble down on it, then where’s the articles calling Schiller and the rest of the Apple executive team, including Jobs, “bozos” for supporting shitty products like the Moto iTunes Phone? Right.
It’s not just Gruber. Jim Dalrymple, someone else who knows how shit works in a corporation should start checking his kegerator hoses for mold for agreeing with Gruber on this in his piece, “Bozo”:
John Gruber giving his thoughts on Apple’s newest VP Kevin Lynch. There is also an Exhibit B. Like Gruber, it concerns me that Lynch kept beating the Flash drum for so long, even when it was clear it was dead.
Oh come on Jim, it most certainly does not. You’ve been a part of a largeish corporation before, you know how shit works. The both of them do. Kevin Lynch wasn’t doing anything that anyone else in his position, including Gruber wouldn’t have done. He was supporting a major company initiative in public. That’s not the sign of a bozo, and Gruber needs to stop pretending otherwise.
[The latest sign of the apocalypse is holding everyone to a different standard than the one you hold for yourself.]
