|Ryan Tate: "But I really want porn and Flash!!!"|
Paul Mitchell absolutely loves Apple. So in love with Apple is Paul Mitchell, that he never misses a chance to bash anything MacApple manufactures, produces, sells or supports. But, that's okay because Paul Mitchell is a capitalist and he understands that Apple is free to produce a product that consumers are free to consume, and Paul can purchase elsewhere from another manufacturer. This is called a free market system. Paul gets it.
Ryan Tate, does not. Ryan Tate happens to work for one of my absolute favorite media companies, Gawker Media. While at home, in between long homo-erotic porn sessions, Ryan Tate happened across an iPad ad that made him so angry that he spit cheetos all over his monitor. The iPad ad proclaimed something about a revolution, and apparently that's all it took for Sh!tfit Tate to unload on Steve Jobs, Apple's CEO, with both barrels. The astounding thing is that Jobs wrote back.
The article, as much as I hate Gawker Media, is pretty interesting and you should check it out. Okay, I take it back. The article sucks, but the screenshots of the email exchange are very interesting. If, however, you don't have the stomach for it, allow me to give you the paraphrased version:
Ryan Tate: iPad sucks cause I can't watch porn, and you're a jerk for not letting me have Adobe on it or my iPhone.Good for Jobs. The ridiculousness of Tate's logic is as simple as getting pissed that the Italian Restaurant that you're visiting is forcing you to eat Italian. No one forced Tate to purchase, or use any Apple products. He's free to pick up an HP, any time he wants. And I'm sure that HP wont 'censor' his access to porn either.
Steve Jobs: "...what have you done that's so great? Do you create anything, or just criticize others work and belittle their motivations?"
