Mac, iPhone, and iPad user Rush Limbaugh today discussed Apple Inc., Tim Cook, and the next-gen iPhone on his radio program that, since its inception on August 1, 1988, is the highest-rated talk radio show in the United States.
The 3-hour Rush Limbaugh Show airs daily on a network of approximately 590 AM and FM affiliate stations. The program is also broadcast worldwide on the U.S. Armed Forces Radio Network. A November 2008 poll by Zogby International found that Rush Limbaugh was the most trusted news personality in the nation.
From the live transcript:
I’m not kidding. I got people e-mailing me, being depressed about the new iPhone. I kid you not. Well, I’ll tell you why. It’s because apparently everything is known about what it’s gonna be, and that’s like taking Santa Claus out of Christmas for people. Apple’s big announcement is on Wednesday, and everybody thinks they know what the phone’s gonna be. It’s gonna be a four-inch screen. It’s gonna have LTE, 4G LTE in it, it’s gonna have whatever, people know it. It’s not a new design. It looks exactly like the current phone, a little thinner. It looks just like the current phone, just a half-inch longer. But no wider. It’s gonna have a bigger screen but nothing on that screen is gonna be bigger. There’s just gonna be more space on the screen and the Apple fanboys are all depressed…
It’s amazing to track this. You know, I’m a Mac fanboy myself. So I track this stuff… It’s amazing to look at the various things people are interested in, and you can find depression everywhere, disappointment. And Apple hadn’t even said anything yet. But everybody’s convinced they know what it’s gonna be, and it’s like Santa Claus. One guy even said that Tim Cook, the CEO of Apple, is so boring they better get a celebrity out there to conduct the big show on Wednesday or nobody’s gonna watch it.
