PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless I'm currently reading Jerry Kaplan's excellent book "Startup: a Silicon Valley adventure". In this book, Kaplan, founder and CEO of GO Corp., details the founding, financing and eventual demise of his highly innovative company, including the development and workings of their product. What's so surprising about this book is just how timeless it really is - the names and products may have changed, but the business practices and company attitudes surely haven't.

"[q]And yes there actually has been a mysterious increase in the hipster twat population.


You couldn't make this shit up. Have you come off your meds again?
"

In case you haven't noticed, "Hipster twat" is a DEMOGRAPHIC, not a biological species. Idiot.

Oh, and how dishonest of you for not quoting the REST of my post which explained what I meant by the "increase" in the "population".

You illustrate what it has come to - in order to maintain your self-deception, you stoop to misrepresenting people's arguments. Reality distortion field - you're in it.

Once again, you show you have no logical arguments to back yourself up and thus resort to misquoting and misrepresenting. Case in point, you haven't even bothered trying to rebut the fact of publishers and how they manipulate sales figures to get on best seller lists so they can start a positive feedback loop - and why this effect could not account for a significant portion of Apple's success.

You. Fail. Intellectual collapse. Vacuous idiot. [/q]


I guess that answers my question about your meds

What was that? Was that the sound of you having no counter argument to make?

Yeah, I expected as much.

So basically, Tony Swash is the kind of person who really believes that books and CDs get on best seller lists purely on the back of the quality of writing and/or composition and/or performance and that applies to every product ever sold.

And I'M the one on meds, supposedly.
