Terrible, and sad. But we have to face the truth. Nothing lasts forever.

More than just an embarrassing misstep, this disastrous move shows that finally Apple has lost its magic:

But wait—I love broccoli! We all do! At least, millions and millions do! And think about the huge number of great recipes out there you can’t possibly enjoy without it!

More than just an embarrassing misstep, this disastrous move shows that finally Apple has lost its magic. Without proper broccoli, the iPhone 5 will be no match for the upcoming Motorola Pipe Dream, and its market share will drop dramatically as has been predicted since, uh, the original iPhone was announced in January 2007. The game is effectively over, and the once successful iPhone models will be nothing more than nostalgic fodder for gadget historians.

  1. No, this is a brilliant marketing strategy! Think of all the young kids and teenagers who distaste vegetables! They didn’t lose it, they just changed the target-group!

  2. OMG. it’s over… So sad… ;)

  3. love the daring fireball links – when the iPhone was first announced, I remember driving down the highway when an “expert” on the radio proclaimed that the iPhone was doomed to fail because “nobody wants to have a phone that also plays music, does email and surfs the web. People want different devices that specialize in different things.” I nearly drove off the road laughing. Looking forward to the iPhone5 even without broccoli-tasting broccoli because the pie-on-demand button will make up for that.

  4. Yeah the linked articles from Daring Fireball are just too fantastic! They inspired my blogpost in the first place, but I was still looking for a hook. Then along came this iPhone 5 cartoon :-)
