What Really Grinds My Gears!!

Posted on Updated on

I think from time to time I will write one of these ‘you know what really grinds my gears’ posts. If Peter Griffin can do it, well so can I.
So you know what really grinds my gears? The manipulation that occurs in reporting the news. Sure it’s nothing new but it’s incredible how rampant it is now just to get in ratings or to generally misinform.. i’ll just stick to tech for this one post.. a couple days ago… I am watching the news and the tech segment had the guy talk about how apple servers were brought down by the sheer amount of download requests for iOS9… in the same breath he talks about a gaff Microsoft made by making an update that was meant for certain phone models available to all phones which caused many phones to crash. Do you see the difference in the reporting? Has #Apple not had its share of mishaps thus far with iOS9? Of course it has. Do u remember ‘antennagate’ when it was the end user that was holding the phone incorrectly ? This morning on another news show their tech guy was playing down the malware in the app store but at the same his explanation of what this malware can do was not very promising. So which is it? Worry? Or not. I don’t think i’ve seen or heard anything come out of #Apple. dead silence… even from local boy @iMore.

Then u have this guy..

Say what? The few issues that a some people might have? Hahaha.. u do know that the first step to recovery is to admit you have a problem.
