How do idiots get hired in mainstream media? Do they sleep with someone at a company where execs have no morals or shame?
Consider this: Apple sells refurbished iPhones, therefore, the iPhone isn’t selling well. That’s the logic behind Zac Bissonnette of Blogging Stocks.
I’m writing this on Apple’s new aluminum keyboard, the one shipping with the highly touted new iMac. Cutting edge? A bit. This keyboard is a delight, but took a few days to get used to.
Sitting beside my keyboard is my iPhone. The iPhone is a delight to use, but the onscreen keyboard took a few days to get used to.
I could have said, “iPhone onscreen keyboard is a dud, expect Apple to recall millions of units.” I’m entitled to an opinion, though that one borders on the ludicrous.
So does Zac’s opinion regarding the iPhone, yet he’s blogging for a company that should provide attractive and beneficial knowledge about various stocks, instead, it (and Zac) appear to just make up stuff.
For example, Zac acknowledges the recent pullback in the stock market, Apple’s AAPL notwithstanding. What’s he say to that?
Uh, really, Zac? And what kind of evidence would that be? Does Zac have some kind of insider tip on a mass recall of the iPhone? Nope.
Does Zac have some research that says Apple’s first entry into the cell phone industry just isn’t selling well at the nearly 2,000 retail outlets in the US? Nope.
Zac doesn’t have squat. His only “research” into the subject is to regurgitate the fact that Apple now sells refurbished iPhones in the Apple Store (online) for $100 off.
Wait. It’s worse. Zac now launches himself into a fit of imagination, where facts do not exist.
That’s an interesting limb to climb out on, Zac, old buddy. Because you’re the only one there. The iPhone launch was the single greatest technogadget launch in American history. Apple says they plan to sell 1-million iPhones by the end of September.
So far, every analyst doing real research says the company may exceed their objectives as the iPhone is selling steadily at both AT&T’s stores and at Apple’s retail stores.
How do they know the iPhone is selling well? Research, not imagination. They survey some stores, determine about how many are sold, on average, each day, then do the math. Guess what? Apple could sell 1-million iPhones by end of September.
But Zac doesn’t believe it because he has
imagination you don’t have. Why are there refurbished iPhones for sale?
When pigs fly, Zac. Shame on you for passing yourself off as a journalist instead of the charlatan stock manipulator (person falsely claiming to have a special knowledge or skill; a fraud) you appear to be. How do you arrive at such drivel, Zac?
Uh, how so, Sad Zac? You don’t really know, do you? You just made it all up, right? I call you on your bullcrapola attempt. You’re a disgrace to anyone who can type.
Zac, your logic would mean that Mac sales are in trouble because Apple also sells refurbished Macs. Oh, forget about those pesky facts, like record sales for Macs.
Your logic would also mean that iPod sales are in trouble because Apple also sells refurbished iPods. Oh, forget about those pesky facts, too, Sad Zac, like record sales for iPods.
People read Blogging Stocks because they want to learn something important about a company; important enough to help them with a stock buying decision. All you’ve done is help readers decide not to read Blogging Stocks any longer.
Why? Because of the company’s “hire the handicapped” policy? It’s possible. People sure won’t read you because you’re a good researcher. You’re a fiction writer.
