T.T. O’Brien is tired of fake complaints from technologists.
Some people like to complain and a few get paid for it. Take John C. Dvorak. Please. Let’s just make the complaints viable.
Can we complain about Apple?
Apple has a keyboard problem? Check. Apple’s Mac Pro is too expensive even for pros? Check. ‘I dread going to the Apple Store?’ Uh, no. Unless you dread eating, or dread bathing, or dread laughter and life. The Apple Store is where you go to, 1) check out Apple gear, 2) buy Apple gear, 3) get support from techies more genius than most of us, 4) get free training.
A tech writer complained about how far away Apple Stores are just before Apple cut a support and service deal with Best Buy.
Enough of the caterwauling and woe is me from technology journalists who figured out it takes less time to complain than it does to analyze a compelling issue write about something worthwhile to readers.
