Kevin Poulsen Attacks Ron Paul, iPhone, Mac Users In a Single Broad Brush of Wired Incompetence.

Kevin Poulsen
Daniel Eran Dilger
Embarrassed over a sensationalist article he commissioned on iPhone security panic, Wired editor Kevin Poulsen pulled no punches to cover over his sloppy work by publishing an inaccurate, politically-tained smear piece that mixed in a conspiracy theory regarding presidential candidate Ron Paul into the discussion of Apple’s iPhone security. Someone with Poulsen’s tainted history in computer security issues should know better.

Troy Wolverton Digs Up Rob Enderle In Desperate Apple Attack

200711052003
Daniel Eran Dilger
Seething Apple critic Troy Wolverton sifted through the company’s latest stellar earnings reports in a desperately transparent bid to find something bad to say about the company. He ended up complaining that “iPod sales grew just 8.2 percent last fiscal year to $8.31 billion.” Yes, what’s a half billion dollar revenue increase, 31% unit growth, and industry leadership in a market that wags like Wolverton tried to concede to giant Microsoft, which is losing billions?

Ten Myths of Leopard: 1 Graphics Must Be Slow!

Are you ready for an all out assault on Mac OS X Leopard by Windows Enthusiasts? Earlier this year, I compiled a listing of complaints related to the iPhone before they could even think them up, although self-styled analysts kept trying to perpetuate them for months after I debunked them. I later outlined a similar series exposing some reality related to Apple TV. Before the trolls really get going on Leopard, let’s clear the air there, too. Of course, there are also real issues related to Leopard users should take into consideration. Here’s an honest look at Mac OS X 10.5 against the myths being reported.

The Great Google gPhone Myth

200710200002
Daniel Eran Dilger
Pundits have seized upon rumors of a new mobile phone product from Google as their golden ticket for bashing the iPhone. The “gPhone” is the perfect foil for fear-based rumormongers because it’s a secret Google hasn’t said much about publicly. That lets the wags blow it out of proportion and stretch it into an iPhone Killer. They’re wrong, here’s why.

Steve Jobs Ends iPhone SDK Panic

Apple officially announced plans to release a software development kit for the iPhone and iPod Touch in February. That pulls the rug from under the harping wags who have tried to conflate Apple’s security efforts with the persecution of third party developers.

Rise of the iTunes Killers Myth

iTunes Killer
Daniel Eran Dilger
After years of looking foolish for parading out model after model of embarrassing junk as the next iPod Killer, the seas of punditry have given up on finding an iPod Killer, and have instead sought to identify an iTunes Killer. It seems they’ve decided that the reason the iPod is outselling everything else is that it is “locked down” to the iTunes Store. Their obvious answer is to seek to kill iTunes so that online music buyers are liberated to go out and buy iPod alternatives. They’re wrong, here’s why.
