Did a quick scan on Techmeme this morning for interesting CES news. Guess what I see?
Apple decided to announce new servers today. I call this a lame move.
Last year, Apple dominated CES without even being there with their iPhone announcements. This, in my opinion, was fair game, since CEA scheduled the conference to overlap with MacWorld.
However this year there’s no schedule conflict. And the PR guys and marketing team there know this, and they also know that by issuing virtually ANY news (Mac servers? really? do they exist?) they are going to get prominent coverage. In other words, they did this intentionally to steal any limelight from the thousands (yes THOUSANDS) of companies spending HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS of dollars at CES.
This is a lame move akin to a bully stealing some lunch money. Lame, and unnecessary. And in case anyone’s forgotten, I actually like Apple now. Well, maybe just a little bit less.
UPDATE: okay, 20 comments later, I get it, you don’t agree. that’s fine, and some of you raise some good points. but no need for the personal attacks, that’s lamer than lame!
