Newsweek staffer Daniel Lyons apologizes for Apple interference claim

| To Levy, "this is like hiring Rush Limbaugh 
| as your White House correspondent" and 
| expecting to get interviews. Lyons's "most 
| notable professional accomplishment is a 
| vicious satire of Apple."

Caution: Full-Blown Fool Ahead

| Imagine...an operating system that runs totally outside of Windows...how 
| silly. 
| You will note that there doesn't seem to be a way to comment on 
| his "blog"...and maybe that's by design...or maybe this is just a satire blog 
| like Fake Steve Jobs. I don't think so...Our Forbes Editor who got outed as 
| the Fake Steve Blogger is simply a mean-spirited @$$-Whole who spend about 
| two weeks after the "outing" explaining how he had been taken out of context.    
| About 90 or 100 times by my count. I am guessing this is the kind of guy who 
| got his kicks as a kid sticking firecrackers in a cat's collar and watching 
| the mayhem. Our Fool in Full is just plain addled...I have no other recourse 
| but to guess that, given the type of stuff he is writing and passing on 
| as "technical knowledge". And I quote:    
| "Linux is a marvellous operating system in its own right, and even
| comes in several different flavours. However, as good as these flavours
| are, they first need Microsoft Windows to load the services prior to
| use."
| Now, how many people are reading this drivel and taking it for gospel? You 
| have to wonder and my next question would be: Do people who believe this sort 
| of Foolishness have any business operating a computer? I have a friend 
| in "the business who says she thinks not...   



Grumpy Fake Steve Jobs

| Some of you may be wondering why Daniel Lyons, aka Fake Steve Jobs, is on the 
| war path against me. 


"Fake Steve Jobs" is Daniel Lyons, in case anyone wants to sue

| Maybe we should be, since this is the man who wrote about the "evils" of 
| anonymous blogging in  "Attack of the Blogs", where he said that blogs 
| are âthe prized platform of an online lynch mob spouting liberty but spewing 
| lies, libel and invective.â   
| Um. Dude. Talk about world class hypocrisy.

| MediaNews did buy the Mercury News with a loan from Bill Gates' foundation, 
| and is in the process of paying back that loan by publishing information 
| without much journalistic or technical integrity.  
| Specifically, I wrote âOne might think that the San Jose Mercury News, being 
| located in Apple's backyard, would tend to trumpet the company's success. One 
| would be wrong... Apple's corporate proximity to San Jose is trumped by the 
| Mercury Newsâ need to publish low cost, highly sensational news to make 
| enough money to pay back Bill Gates for the favor of his humanitarian loan.â
