What’s more annoying than iPhone hype? Not much, but I’ve finally found something. Or rather, it’s found me: People who fancy themselves electronics experts patting themselves on the back for regurgitating iPhone anti-hype they’ve read on the Internet. Yes, congratulations, you’ve figured out the surprising fact that the iPhone is incapable of curing cancer. Well done. But I’ve already had to wade through a million billion blog posts talking about its horrible horrible failings that make it the worst thing ever to befall the human race. I don’t need to listen to you yammering about the same thing less eloquently, thanks. Please shut up forever.
Speaking of the iPhone, it’s finally shattered the “Apple equals Nintendo” paradigm; apparently the phone was launched in copious supply on day one, outselling projections by 250% with plenty still available. It also costs way too much and is fairly close to the bleeding edge of American phone technology. So yeah, pretty much the opposite of Nintendo these days. Ah well, it was a beautiful comparison while it lasted.
Meanwhile at 1UP, I’ve compared Pokémon Battle Revolution to cocaine cut with Dran-O. Oh, yeah, and I wrote that huge-ass preview about Contra 4… the one I teased all last week but never actually linked from here. Eh heh.
Coming tomorrow: Cake!
