iMore show 352: WWDC 2013 preview


Good show, guys! But one thing sucked: You just cannot talk about how the LoopMagazine came about without mentioning Marco's TheMagazine even once.

I know that Jim was pretty much straightforward about the inspiration he took from the TheMagazine in his blogpost about the launch of his magazine. But in the show he almost acts as if it was his own idea altogether and/or as if TheMagazine didn't exist. Of course it's the most direct completion one could think, so I get why you don't wanna mention it too often. But not mentioning it at all feels dishonest to me and it hurts Jim's credibility.

I get the point, and I can't speak for Jim but he mentioned it when he launched The Loop Magazine, I mentioned it when I reviewed The Loop Magazine, and so I guess we all just felt like we'd discussed that already and has other stuff on our minds.

If Jim comes back 1 year, or 5 years for now, how often should that be part of the discussion? Always?

It was probably worth mentioning, especially because Jim crediting Marco so explicitly in his initial launch, and it's understandable how it could come off as an oversight, but it was completely unintentional.

Thanks for the clarification, Rene. I agree that TheMagazine shouldn't have to be part of every discussion about TheLoopMag forever. But only one month in and considering the specific question "how came this about?" it just striked me as painfully odd to see Jim & Peter dancing around the elephant in the room, which didn't seem completely unintentional on their part, to me. That being said, I'll give them the benefit of the doubt. I highly respect and just love what you guys are doing here on iMore and on TheLoop(Magazine). Keep going and stay true to your roots ;)
