Dalrymple: Nope, a new Apple TV isn’t on its way

“For the next week, customers who buy an Apple TV at one of the tech giant’s retail stores will reportedly receive a $25 iTunes gift card as part of a promotion that could signal a new Apple TV is on its way,” Salvador Rodriguez reports for The Los Angeles Times.

        1. Yes, Comrade. We shall all think alike, like you, and all be better. Thank you comrade! I shall get the club and beat myself for thinking the global warming scientists fudged numbers, lied, and misinformed the Press. Or thinking they changed the name to ‘climate change’ because that excuses facts like a Great Lake icing over for the fist time in centuries. Ow…ouch. Yes, I feel much better Dear Leader! Got my mind right, boy!

          (And they said McCarthy was wrong…sigh.)

    1. Thank you Tim Cook. That war on Global Warming is winning. It is about 4 degrees out here in Cleveland, Lake Erie is 100% frozen over, another huge cold storm is headed this way, children are being found frozen to death outside in Minnesota, record cold weather is all across America. And Apple did it. Not that Global Warming has been beaten, I have a request for Tim Cook. Could you now focus on the awful Global Cooling? It is killing us out here. You really screwed this pooch. Your GW tactics turned the thermometer back way too far. How stupid are you? Did you and Al Gore really decide you had a better grip on the temperature than God? Better take a look at iOS security once more before you go thinking you are smarter than the one that created the planet.

      1. Yes, global warming create’s global cooling. You didn’t know that….I know. I mean, who’d have thunk it?

        Psst, a word of advise, better to just keep your mouth shut than to open it and prove yourself stupid.

        1. Comrade, I have this friend at worth, she tells me there is global warming on three of the planets we know as Venus, Jupiter, and Mars. How can I explains to her our foul white humans use of carbon affects those planets as well!?! Please help me, Comrade – she and everyone at work laughs at me when I mention global change!!!

            1. Some people have locked themselves into a viewpoint and only accept inputs that reinforce that viewpoint. Their minds are closed and nothing that you do or say can change their opinions in any meaningful way.

              MDN has its own subset of these people. Their political agenda is rigid, their FOV is narrow, and their debating skills are generally quite juvenile. If you get some joy out of it, go ahead and “spar” with them. But it is truly a waste of time.

        1. well, since the thermometer wasn’t invented until 1593 by that well-known heretic, Galileo Galilei, it seems your “warmest month in history” is at odds with the estimated age of the earth at 4.55 billion years. I find it much more likely that you’re fulla shit.

          1. The Global Warming Scam (aka Carbon Tax) and its bizarre adherence to a mere 500 years (mostly local, limited recordings) of temperatures reminds me of this other dandy lie:

            “For more than a decade, Sen. Clinton’s informal biography repeated the story [that she was named for Sir Edmund Hillary], and it was recounted in former President Bill Clinton’s 2004 autobiography, “My Life.”

            The problem with the tale, however, is one of timing. Sir Edmund and his Sherpa guide, Tenzing Norgay, became known to the world only in 1953, after becoming the first men to reach Everest’s summit. Sen. Clinton was born in 1947.”

          2. And so, scientists have no idea how to fairly accurately estimate climate data going back centuries, even millennia? Are you certain? And what authority do you have, what expertise do you claim over the vast majority of scientists and climatologists who have been saying for many years that greenhouse gases are building and causing atmospheric temperatures to rise? Have you bothered to read any articles and studies, or have you cherry-picked the few authors – most of them shills for the energy industry – who claim it’s not real?

            Climate change deniers are as bad as Holocaust deniers or vaccine deniers. Open your eyes. Accept reality.

        2. Yeah, it was the warmest month using the hockey stick team’s “adjusted” numbers. These guys don’t release their raw data and verifiable procedures. They cherry pick data. Sometimes they don’t even know what data they used. They threaten to destroy data before they will let others find it. They corrupt the peer review process. In short, they “hide the decline.”
          All of this was shown with the leaked emails. These guys aren’t scientists; they are snake oil salesmen.

    2. That is correct, George…under Cook,  has ceased to be the world innovator, the pride of American ingenuity. He has single-handedly reduced it to a nauseatingly bland panderer to the “trendy cause célèbre-of-the-week.” Didn’t take long either, too bad.

  1. When Jim says ‘Nope,’ that means the event does not figure in the upcoming extravaganza. Only that. He implies nothing about the creative landscape after that point in time.

    1. What rogifan said. If you read on Jim’s site what he was actually saying “Nope” to, you’ll see Rogifan is correct. Jim didn’t say no Apple TV in the near future, he was referring to the $25 off that ends on March 5 not meaning that a new Apple TV is coming in the next few weeks.

      So, the headline of this story is wrong.

      Cheers.

  2. I don’t think Dalrymple knows anything more than anyone else. With Apple’s recent escalation of secrecy it would be crazy for him to be getting information and possibly a sting operation.
    So, “Meh”. Just another guy who wants to be in the know but isn’t.
