Woz Thinks Apple Should Make an Android Phone

2 Comments

DF reader Glen Turpin brought this to my attention on Twitter, asking “Does Woz have any idea what has made 21st century Apple successful?” Bless his heart, we all love him to death, but I don’t think Woz understands what has made Apple successful since 1984.

No, he's a wealthy, geeky troll. If I was in his position, I'd be doing exactly the same thing, just to make life interesting.

Where is the transcript of this interview? The quoted text ("There’s nothing that would keep Apple out of the Android market as a secondary phone market…") leave out the context for how this topic came up. You don't think there's a chance he was asked a hypothetical, then his response cherry picked for page views?

→ Network Solutions auto-enrolls high-profile domain customers for $1,850 “service”

4 Comments and 5 Shares

Brent Simmons:

I couldn’t believe that I’d been opted-in, without my permission, to any new product — and I was stunned when I saw how much it cost. And further surprised when I saw that I would have to make a phone call to deal with all this.

I waited to link to this at first, because surely, I thought, this has to be a misunderstanding, a phishing scam not actually from Network Solutions, or some other reasonable alternative explanation.

Nope. They confirmed it:

“WebLock is intended for the top 1 percent of Web.com’s customers who own some of the world’s most highly-visible and valuable web properties.”

I bet the real reason they’re auto-enrolling this helpful “service” for the top 1% of customers is because the top 1% contains many huge companies and bulk registrants that are less likely to notice this extra fee.

I am shocked, just shocked, that Network Solutions is run by horrible people.

From my experience, I can't recommend Hover highly enough. They are straighforward and reliable.

Apparently Network Solutions missed the glory days of the 90s when they were the most reviled company on the internet…

I love Saddleback Leather bags. I have a couple. They are HEAVY though... but as Dave (owner/founder/designer) says... they'll fight over it when you're dead and gone.

The domestic violence "joke" at the end wasn't funny, but this is a very good marketing department overview of how to make a quality leather bag.

Wow, roped me into watching the whole thing. Guess I like leather crafting. Of course I'm never spending $600 on a bag but fun to watch.
