Howard Stern revealed on his Sirius XM radio program this morning that he made the last step in his quest to upgrade his tech life: He dumped his pretend iPhone for the real thing.
“I’m working hard to get used to the touch keyboard,” Stern said and added that he preferred typing in iPhone’s horizontal (landscape) mode best. “The iPhone is a thousand times better than my Droid and I actually thought that was a good phone,” Stern said.
During today’s program, Stern revealed that he now has two MacBook Airs, a 27-inch iMac, and two new iPad 2 units. He admitted that his “personal stylist,” Ralph Cirella, has been right for telling him to go Apple for the last 10 years or so! At last, sweet vindication, berry face!
Stern’s longtime news anchor and co-host, Robin Quivers said that she will now switch to all-Apple, too. Fred Norris, the longest-tenured staff member of The Howard Stern Show, has been an Apple man for some time now.
Stern fielded some phone calls from Android and Wintel users who tried to talk him out of his Apple fait accompli using some of the usual tired disinformation (“Apple’s are all the same underneath; they try to hide that they use Intel chips just like any other PC” and similar idiocy; BTW: It’s the OS, stupid), but Stern would have none of it: “I’m 100% Apple now and loving it… It’s just so much easier.”
