Has Apple reached the bottom of the barrel? Have people stopped bobbing for Apples? A recent story claims that iPad sales are down 27%. The new Apple iPhone 5C’s sales are tanking. Are customers finally realizing that an iPad is just a tablet and an iPhone is just a phone and that there are tons of alternative choices out there? If that’s so, it was a long time coming. People have been so brainwashed that Steve Jobs was the technical equivalent of God that if he had attached an Apple logo to a stack of dog droppings, it would have sold like hotcakes. Personally, I have never cared for anything Apple makes, and am also unfazed about Android. My previous phones have almost exclusively been Nokia/Symbian, except for one Motorola. I then had a Windows 7 and upgraded it to a Windows 8–the est phones I ever had. I’ve fooled around with iPhones and Androids and find them to be a pain. Everyone I know who has iPhones or Androids has numerous complaints, especially when it comes to batteries draining prematurely. I recently had the opportunity to try a Windows tablet and found it much better that its competition. That’s why Windows has dominated the tech world for so long. Apple makes a poor also-ran.

My junky car’s water pump went out. It’s the original 30-year old pump, so over all, that’s not bad. Still, the car’s so old that things have been going out for a while. About 4 years ago the A/C went out, then the power door locks fizzled out, and about a year and a half ago my heater/blower motor (or maybe just the fan switch) stopped working. I’ve spent money over the last couple of years fixing my wife’s car and nothing on mine. Today, the Oldsmobile is in the shop and the water pump’s getting replaced.
