The Media Doesn’t Get Apple

Pieces like this Newsweek one come out every so often. They compare today’s Apple to the Apple that lost against Microsoft, insisting that Apple is doomed to repeat history and stumble in the battle against Google: Meanwhile, Android is already outselling Apple, according to market researcher NPD…My sense is that today’s Apple event marks an important tipping point—the point where Android ...

Harvard Thinks Big

Harvard Thinks Big was billed as an “important” event. Its Facebook page was ebullient.

As ... Read More

No Nukes, Please.

It would be a pity to let go without comment Obama’s recent speech in Prague.  For those of you who didn’t follow it (the North Korean missile launch an hour before somewhat overshadowed it), it was surprisingly consequential.  A decent number of commentators dismissed it, echoing Slate’s Anne Applebaum in critiquing Obama’s “odd obsession with universal nuclear disarmament”. It’s interesting ... Read More

The Paper of Record Becomes a Parody of Itself

The New York Times often caters to the upscale tastes of its (quickly dwindling) readership: the Style section, the theater reviews, the wedding announcements. And that’s all well and good. But then, there are articles like this one. You see, apparently half a million dollars doesn’t get you very far in the Big Apple. Well, it’s not that it couldn’t ... Read More
