Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y So, Marco Arment, John Gruber, and MG Siegler (has anyone ever seen them in the same room?) all jumped on a quote from Eric Schmidt which was supposedly very arrogant and proves Schmidt knows no developer likes Android. The joke's on them, though, since none of them actually bothered to watch the source video to verify Schmidt was quoted properly. As it turns out, he was not, as Julian Yap notes. Update: Arment, Siegler, and Gruber have posted updates.

You don't actually read his blog, do you? Or if you do, you come in with that chip on your shoulder and automatically assume the worst of everything he says.

Glancing over his articles, he seems to be very good at predicting where the industry will go and seems - despite constant baiting by people like yourself and Thom - to be quite polite and reasonable.

His baseball obsession is rather strange, however.

I read enough of his garbage to make up own mind. And even now his "correction"(well update) is more like: "Yeah well, I suck as a blogger and don't check my sources but I am still great and IOS is still pure awesomeness and Android sucks and everything I wrote is still kind of right although it was proven to be wrong.

Everybody who reads that kind of horse manure needs to get his head checked PERIOD
