Surprise Jobs Report...


It appears that Steve Jobs, Apple Inc. CEO and largest shareholder in the Walt Disney Company has scheduled another one of those Special Events by invitation only scheduled for next Tuesday...

I wonder what Mr. Reality Distortion Field has up his sleeve?

I don't know what you've got against Steve Jobs. Can you think of a tech CEO that does better, more interesting, more engaging presentations than him? I can't.

So who ya gonna call? Steve Ballmer, of Microsoft? Let me tell you, he ALSO has a "Reality Distortion Field". But that's all he has. He seems driven by greed and power, not by making truly innovative, user-friendly products.

Um. I don't think Honor has anything against Steve Jobs. Unless I'm much mistaken, hasn't he promoted Steve over and over as someone great for the company?

Yes, kevbot, you are right.

I am not sure where anonymous #1 is getting this tone from.

At this time of year (September), he does his annul Dog and Pony show on the new I-PODs.

Also, he needs a little damage control on all the reports that he is in bad health and even the respected Bloomberg business news wire accidentally published that he was dead.

They say the press can be murder, but in this case they actually killed him off!

Kevin Rose broke this over a week ago. New Nano, slightly updated Touch and iTunes 8

Well Anonymous,

You obviously don't read this blog very much if you think I have something against Jobs. And you obviously don't know Steve Jobs very well if you think I was calling him a name. He's been known for having that "Reality Distortion Field" for a long time. It's a saying that has applied to his speeches for decades because of his ability to move people and sell them on his ideas. As for Steve Ballmer, he runs some company up north, right?

Hehe.

I love Ballmer! Anyone that crazy is always going to give you a good show. Let's see Jobs to the monkey dance!

You're so out of touch. The announcement was made weeks ago. Its for the new iPod Nano & iPod touch. Its also for iTunes 8 which will have music recommendations based on your library.

If you spent the same amount of time reading the news as you do prepping your post graphics in Photoshop, you wouldn't waste everyone's time.

jrriddle said...

@anonymous and if you could actualy read I mentioned this a couple hours ago. Plus there has been no "anouncement" only rumours at this point.

Honor Hunter said...

If your times being wasted reading this blog, perhaps you should spend it elsewhere?

Then again, maybe it's my time I'm wasting responding to you...

Reading is fun! said...

You're exactly right, jriddle. If the anonymous had been reading the news, they would realize that all of these 'announcements' are predictions. There is actually a new release that claims iTunes 8 will most likely not be released.

reading is fun! said...

Clarification: Rumor is iTunes 8 would not be released during this announcement.

Kevbot said...

Honor, I've decided to start spending my time reading news that doesn't pertain to your Disney site, and then critiquing you for doing your job and reporting accurately and ebulliently. That's how it's done on here, right?

pully hutchets said...

His site. He reports on what he likes about Disney and anything else that pertains to it. Again, it's his site.

jriddle said...

Just avoid this whole mess and stick to the Disney news. I know you like Apple products, but this will make things easier.

pully hutchets said...

It could be worse. At least this blog isn't as bad as the Re-Imagineering blog. Those people are nuts.

jrriddle said...

@jriddle. It's his blog let him write about whatever he wants. Oh and try to be a little more original with your name

reading is fun! said...

iTunes 8 won't be coming. Everyone stop fighting! These are all rumors! We need to embrace humanity. Just because honor hunter wants to promote Apple, doesn't mean we should stop him.

MouseInfo isn't a blog, it's a discussion board.
