A Tuesday PSA

June 28, 2016 Jon Seliot 1

Humans have many flaws. Selfishness. Greed. Sloth. The Bible outlines a few more. But there are other sinners who are far worse. BOIYDs, Should-ers and lastly, the third of the trio–NIMBY. As usual, we’ve put it on the menu and uploaded it to youtube. Spread the word and be careful.

iPhone 7 Rumor Update: Deep Blue and an Adapter

June 22, 2016 Jon Seliot 0

Hey Tim Cook, We heard a new rumor. The iPhone 7 is going to come with the old ear-buds and an adapter for the lightning port. We’re all for dropping the old hole, but old headphones and an adapter by default–that’s just asinine. Earbuds Apple’s made some pretty illogical decisions lately, such as equating the Republican convention with Donald Trump. […]

“Should” – NO

Hey World, We’ve created a public service announcement, because we care about people. Even the evil ones. So we wanted to let the world know that we at Heysayer are watching for ‘should’ and its purveyors. As with all PSA’s, we’ve added it to the menu.

Apple: Political Player

June 19, 2016 Jon Seliot 0

Hey Tim Cook, No aid for the Republican convention! Rock on. Those damn conservatives. All of them. Every single one. Damn them all. Here’s the scoop from Politico. Apple has told Republican leaders it will not provide funding or other support for the party’s 2016 presidential convention, as it’s done in the past, citing Donald Trump’s controversial comments about women, […]

The iOS Agenda

June 17, 2016 Jon Seliot 0

Hey Tim Cook, News flash. iPads are not laptop replacements. iPads are great, don’t get us wrong, and are well suited to a variety of uses. They just happen to lag in many areas. The education market is the canary. In 2014 the iPad lost its lead in the education market to Chromebooks. PC Mag gave four reasons. Trusty 9to5Mac […]

Struggling with the Hate

June 15, 2016 Jon Seliot 0

Hey Tim, We’ve been struggling to write since the Orlanda massacre. We’re still struggling. We thought by now we’d have some brilliant thought or moving passage that would change the world in some small way. We started and stopped and edited and restarted. And then we’d turn on the news and someone would be bashing someone else. CNN would be […]

3 Expectations for WWDC 2016 [Updated]

June 11, 2016 Jon Seliot 0

Hey Tim, We’ve narrowed our list of WWDC expectations down to three. Just three little ones. 1. Pier to pier payments This is a no-brainer, and how it’s taken this long baffles us. We know it’s not easy. Nothing that’s built for a billion devices is. And we realize Apple still hasn’t fully grasped services yet. And we know that […]

Poor Old Macs

June 9, 2016 Jon Seliot 0

Hey Tim Cook, There isn’t one Mac that I’d buy today. The 12” is underpowered and overpriced. It’s like a 4 cylinder Lotus. And the 11”, which I love, is the same price it was over a year ago. The bump in RAM doesn’t cover the lapse. Just take one glance at the trusty Macrumors Buyers Guide. Everything’s old. The […]

NoCal Homerism [Updated]

June 7, 2016 Jon Seliot 0

Hey Tim Cook, How’s NoCal? We know it’s your home. We know it’s the home of Apple. It makes sense that you like it. But you seem to like it a lot. You’re building secret facilities and plants and buying and leasing large tracts of real estate in Northern California. You’ve named your Mac operating systems after places in California. […]
