Linking to Bullspit

Lazy history….check. Terrible ‘illustration’….check. Nonsensical premise….check.

Is this dreadful piece about the impending “Death of Apple” (sharks will circle first) from the Observer what Marco Arment was talking about? It might seem hard to believe, but knowing the Observer, this article wasn’t written with link-bait in mind. It’s a print article that, somewhat embarrassingly for the person that wrote it, has been pushed on to the Internet where most readers actually know that the contents are nonsense, rather than being hidden in the Observer where no-one would have seen it.

Don’t get me wrong, I like the Observer. But I often get the impression that their motto should be “It’s Sunday, we can write any old shite, no-one actually reads it”
