One major bonus with the Golden State Warriors’ pending early exit from the NBA Playoffs is that we won’t have to be subjected to a parade of Apple Inc. middle management sycophants saying “Go, Dubs!” during their WWDC presentations in order to ass-kiss Apple’s C-level Golden State fans.

(Curry must be promoted as the face of the NBA, so his team makes the finals no matter what – the refs will see to that. NBA fans make professional wrestling fans look like sophisticates who are firmly grounded in reality.)

So, lucky us, now we have to be subjected to yet another a parade of Apple Inc. middle management sycophants saying “Go, Dubs!” during their WWDC presentations in order to ass-kiss Apple’s C-level Golden State fans.]

  1. Where’s the “sycophant” call-out for any other A-list fans at Oracle arena? The disparity in critical scrutiny of all things Apple has got ridiculously unbalanced.

    1. I believe the point is that WWDC is no place for such localized, time-specific trivialities. WWDC has a worldwide audience and the presentations should be timeless, not sullied with banalities. Jobs would have never allowed it.

      1. I totally disagree. Small passionate anecdotes about local teams humanize the experience (and the presenters).

        All you grumpies whining because an Apple rep didn’t mention YOUR team can go to a local Apple Store and sports talk up your local Genius; I’m sure they’ll make you feel better about yourself (and any Apple product you may have with you)!

  2. I will say that I’ve gotten tired of seeing Eddie Cue appear at games, other flashy events, hearing about his love of Ferrari’s…etc. I’m sure he is a talented guy, but he seems so caught up in the glitz. I’d like to see him put his nose to the grindstone a bit more…not saying he doesn’t work hard, but his image doesn’t suggest so.

    When Steve was around, he could call the execs of the music and entertainment industry, and get them to make the deal he wanted through the force of his personality, genius, and achievements. It seems like with Eddie Cue his main way of trying to cut deals is just to schmooze with the big players on the expense account. And he doesn’t always seem to get very far doing so.

    So I do get the point of this post.
