The iPad Pro is a half-baked toaster fridge. A heavy, unnecessary, do-little tablet with a keypad.
That’s a hard sell, folks. Just ask Microsoft, which has been trying to sell the same device for a few years now.
People don’t have infinite amounts of money. They can only spend just a bit more than they bring in.
What to do? What to do if Apple, always happy to take your money, has a product that’s, well, not an easy sell?
Perhaps, and I understand this is a crazy idea, just hear me out, but after years and years and years of saying “if you see a stylus, they blew it” maybe now, now that Apple offers a stylus — PENCIL! — the world’s richest corporation can get people to buy their high-priced, high-margin tablet with a keypad by touting all the infinite wondrousness of, you guessed it, a stylus!
IT WILL NEVER WORK!
That’s Apple’s concern, not mine. And not yours.
And yet, we must note…
If “it just works” and “only when the technology is ready” and “intuitive” then you’d think we wouldn’t require so much marketing, such a huge media push to get people to buy. Right?
The only way Apple gets folks to buy this flop-turd is through a huge media blitz.
Oh, and that Apple bloggers are all praising the Pencil stylus, which only works on Apple’s high-priced, high margin new iPad, is a totally unrelated matter, of course. What? You don’t believe me? You think there’s something going on here? My, aren’t you a suspicious one. Look, I’m sure that post after post after post after link after link after link, in only the past few days, all offering the same, glowing praise over Apple Pencil, is completely coincidental.
And dozens more…
I betcha Apple, the world’s richest corporation, loves all this coincidental free press. All for a mere accessory! Well, an accessory that works with their brandest newest mostest expensivest tablet ever.
But again, these are coincidences. Ignore what looks like anything, well, untoward.
What you should not ignore, of course, is today’s lesson: The moment you stop buying, lots of people, including people who may blog about Apple, stop making money. Sponsors don’t pay if you don’t buy. Advertisers can’t exist without your click.
You wouldn’t want that, would you?
Besides, what else are you going to do with your money?
Now get out there and make some more. There’s another magical revolutionary product coming out in just a few more weeks! And bloggers gotta eat.
