As you may recall, FutureLawyer (Rick Georges) and The Mac Lawyer (Ben Stevens) went head-to-head in the March 2008 ABA Journal (Mac v. PC). By all accounts, the fight had to be stopped early – with Mac being declared the unanimous victor. Hip hip hooray!
Now, FutureLawyer seems to be itching for another fight, as he blogged earlier this month "iPhones Are For Sissies". He actually wrote, "This thing feels like a man’s phone, and makes the iPhone experience feel more suited to a latte drinking, girly man, fashion conscious wimp." Ouch – big talk from the PC guy.
However, he then quickly loses credibility by stating, "Trust me, there are, and are going to be, more open source Android apps than you will ever be able to read about." Trust me? Really? I guess FutureLawyer hasn’t seen "Broken Promises", the latest Apple commercial which (correctly) mocks PC’s plea to "trust me" that Windows 7 won’t have any of the problems that the prior Windows OS had.
I didn’t know that anyone legitimately doubted that the iPhone changed the cell phone forever. I realize that some people like it more than others, but to say it’s akin to a "latte drinking, girly man, fashion conscious wimp" – give me a break! The iPhone put a computer in its users’ pockets and the App Store introduced countless new ways to increase users’ productivity. Trust you? No way, my bespectacled friend.
