47: The Battered Apple Writer

February 15, 2015 at 10:15AM • 52 minutes • Wiki Entry

In this week’s meeting, Jim Dalrymple of The Loop and 5by5's Amplified attempts to tackle step eight by confronting the trauma of covering Apple when the company was beleaguered in the 90's, how it fuels his ongoing vengeance towards Blackberry & Samsung, and now with the company's earnings hitting world records, why he still feels compelled to convince others that Apple products are the real deal.

In addition, we discuss how enthusiasts follow technology with a sports team mentality, how geeks have an emotional connection to their devices just as musicians to their instruments, the commoditization of smartphone market, and whether it says much that many people throw Apple apps into a "crap" folder on their phones.
