See here. Anil Dash says we’re being all smug and ugly because we make fun of Windows in one of our ads. Money quote: “Perhaps most disturbingly, it’s not at all implausible that this little easter egg was, at least implicitly, approved by Steve Jobs himself. It’s a whole ‘nother post to explain why that level of meddling megalomania is kind of pathological for a multi-billion-dollar global corporation, but let’s not digress too much. Suffice to say, the presence of this image means that there’s permission to be this passive-aggressive and, well, lame at all levels of Apple’s organization.”
I’m not even sure where to go with this. I got so angry reading this vicious attack piece that I just started shaking. Ja’Red had to come in and bring me my bottled oxygen. People have no idea how sensitive I am. Negativity of all kinds just really upsets me. I know it’s a free country and people like Anil can write or saw whatever they want. But I really need to keep this stuff out of my zone of focus. It hurts, people. It really hurts. Now will someone please bring me a mango smoothie and make sure there are no damn chunks in it? Thank you.
