The Macalope was interviewed by Apple Matters – you can read it here.
Wonderful interview, and I agree with you that the iPhone will sell well enough to cause Ballmer to throw around office furniture like a deranged monkey.
The Church of Apple would like to point out that the Macalope left out key aspects in his speculation of the future of the iPhone in his Apple Matters interview:
The iPhone will undoubtedly provide a direct link to the spiritual transcendence of Jobs. For the first time ever, the Faithful may no longer experience distance from Him. Always His ethereal presence will be felt, guiding us in our daily lives, soothing our tortured souls whenever we are forced to interact with unintuitive, ill-conceived software or clunky, grotesque hardware whenever we’re away from our marvelously elegant iMac G5 that must remain at home alone on our desk.
The Church of Apple also has it on good account that with the second version of the iPhone the Faithful will be able to miraculously transform PC computers INTO Macs by holding the device up to the PC and focusing the power of Jobs’ spirit through the device.
Finally, a Mac at this Zealot’s day job.
The Church of Apple speculates that the third version will allow a Zealot – by holding the device to another’s forehead – to invoke the almighty efficacy of Apple to flood unbidden into the minds of the misguided so as to assimilate them into the ranks of the Apple Faithful.
Of course we feel this feel this feature is well overdue.
“We live in a golden age for Apple. No one knows how long it will last, so enjoy it.”
Do we learn from this interview that the Macalope is in fact male?
Only if you haven’t been paying attention.
The Macalope regularly refers to himself as “he”.
I consider myself truly ticked off, oh mythical man-beast.
I was thrown off the scent by that comment by Mr Gruber on 1st Nov: “If I knew who The Macalope was, I’d buy him (her? it?) a beer.” That’s my story anyway, and I’m sticking to it.
You and Mr. Gruber are not the only ones so don’t feel bad.
At any rate the Macalope’s gender will become readily apparent around rutting season.
@ Church of Apple,
That is brilliant. I’m gonna hold you to it, too. If it doesn’t work I’m going to….do something…
