If all you did was do a surface skim of reading today, you would have read this;
Senator John McCain just interviewed Apple CEO Tim Cook about the company's taxes and offshore profits.Come on people. You can have your issues with Sen. McCain (R-AZ), heck I do ... but at least make the effort.
But the kicker came at the end, when McCain stopped his line of questioning by asking, "Why the hell do I have to keep updating apps on my iPhone?"
McCain does have a point. It's really annoying to pop open the App Store every time there's a new update. We wish iPhones worked more like Android phones in that respect, letting you update apps automatically.
You know, updating apps means that the developers are improving them and there's a new version and it's gonna do more, and it's gonna maybe be faster, and it's gonna use less of your battery, it's gonna have more features to it. App updates, I can't wait to get app updates. I love getting app updates. I don't get enough of 'em. I wish Apple was updating the iPhone far more often than they are, but McCain is just one of these just buy it... never mind.
... crotchety old John McCain wanted some answers on another matter while he had Mr. Cook’s attention: “Why the hell” does he have to keep updating the apps on his iPhone?
Bill Gates might want to steer clear of D.C., in case Senator McCain decides he needs an explanation for why Microsoft Office doesn’t include the funny little talking paperclip any more.
Here, watch the video yourself. Even TPM got it right for goodness sake, he's having fun.
