iMore show 333: Apple is doomed. Again.

Rene talks about skeuomorphism vs. digital authenticity, and then dives into the crazy "Apple is doomed" week, including supply cut rumors, stock manipulation chatter, and more. (Note: due to technical problems, this show had to be re-recorded. Twice.)

iMore show 333: Apple is doomed. Again.


Rene, I haven't listened to this episode yet, but I feel like you need to bring in some different guests and shake the show up. It feels like I have been listening to the same show for several months straight. Sorry for the negativity!

I agree with the post above. I could do without Georgia but Seth added a great dynamic to the show. Show needs some life injected back into it.

I follow a lot of pod-casts (and am mostly an Android user these days) but I wanted to say thanks to Rene, for re-recording this show with such care. That was an impressive and dedicated act, one of many. Well done mate.

The regular "Apple is doomed" story from Wall Street has become a ritual without meaning. Even the jokes now require a priest. Apple is a nation of the future, not a prisoner of it's past.

It is unfortunate that I just cant listen to more than 15 minutes of your podcast before your rampant fanboy vision of Apple puts my teeth on edge and I have to stop. To see a covert conspiracy against Apple in recent events feels more like paranoia than reportage. Like all other companies, Apple try to make money out of consumers while retaining their grip on the market; they do it rather too well at times. As an ecosystem, iOS has always been too bolted down and "greedy" for control; which is why I avoid it. Try to take a more balanced view, unless you are happy only preaching to total believers, who regard Steve Jobs as a god - because everyone else has changed channels and left the show behind.
