25 Jun 07Strange times call for strange people.

Could be an odd week ahead what with iPhone fee-vah hitting a fee-vah pitch, so expect several posting irregularities (’cause I had the bean dip, if you know what I mean! Ha-ha!), as we may be forced to self-medicate to contain our excitement.

And, well, speaking of pitching, we’re going to Wednesday’s Mariners/Red Sox day game to see Dice-K pitch against Not Felix.

And, in this case, it’s Baek so it’s someone really not Felix.

But if you’re in desperate need of solid technology news you can always go to Fake Phil Schiller.

Or Fake Paul Thurrott.

Or Fake Rob Enderle.


Uh, fake me.


Anyone want to take responsibility for that last one?




Didn’t think so.

    Gotta go read it now

  5. The Incredible Mr says:

    Hey! who took my exclamation mark?

  6. fourth says:

    The fourth one has spoken.

  7. Biff Whammy says:

    No fake Biff Whammy? I’m hurt. Or irrelevant. Probably the latter.

  8. seventh says:

    Or perhaps sixth?

  9. yet another steve says:

    But wait…
    Are you real in the first place.

    All these fake fakers, only one real fake steve.

  10. redeyebase says:

    obviously i wasn’t paying attention. sorry. you’re all fakes.

  11. The Incredible Mr says:

    This is all because I had my ass amputated after that fishing accident isn’t it? Hey, where’s my hat? Damn it!

  12. Streetrabbit says:

    That was a fake first before but everyone knew that.
    Seems to me that most of the comments on those sites are either from John, Paul or Rob which could mean they are all the product of the same deranged mind. The common thread I see is…John.

    Of course the whole industry is full of fakes and phoneys. When Peter Asher and Gordon Waller fell out over the lead break in ‘World Without Love’ they formed rival software companies and vowed one day to take over the World with hate. Extreme and loopy but that’s the sort of people they were. Nowadays most people know them as Bill & Steve. Only a few of us still call them Peter & Gordon.

  13. Not Paul says:

    Thanks for putting my site ahead of Enderle.

  14. OMGHAX says:

    Be proud that you’ve inspired a doppleganger, Moltz! Not even John Gruber or the Macalope can tout that! At least I hope not…

  15. vitamin fortified says:

    Is this the real me or the fake me. I haven’t been around for so long, I am no longer sure.

  16. Huh? says:

    I don’t even think there is a real me anymore.

    Oh, does this exclaimation mark belong to anyone? It was lying right over there…

  17. Ahhhhh, to be seventeen again… Wait a minute, I hated being seventeen. I joined the goddamned Navy when I was seventeen and I still haven’t gotten over that, and that was 30 years ago.

    Seventeen sucks!


  18. the fake Carbonfish says:

    Ahhhhh, to be eighteen again… Wait a minute, I …

  19. Strange Person says:

    You called?

  20. Ace Deuce says:

    Posting irregularities=business as usual.

    Thank Godfrey things are back to normal again!

  21. Nxxx says:

    Twenty-one. My age.

  22. buthidae says:

    Twenty-two. Um, not my age. But one higher.

    Damn you Nxxx, who was seemingly born at a similar point in the space-time continuum to myself. Kudos.

  23. Jason Z says:

    You forgot about fake John Dvorak.


  24. Nxxx says:

    Mr. Moltz Sir, Mr. Moltz Sir, that buthidæ is being nasty to me.

    Permission to kill, please, I am a double 0.

  25. Joe #2 says:

    this almost scares me.
    It was actually correct…

  26. blank says:

    I’d rather watch Daisuke pitch than deal with any kind of phone news. Ganbatte!

  27. Step says:

    28. My age. I think. Or at least it’s close.

    Who knew memory loss sets in this quickly?

    Anyway, we’re probably nearing the end of the “my age” posts. Surely grouchy old men aren’t too likely to frequent this type of establishment… IF you know what I mean. *sniff – turns up nose*

  28. kingthedestroyer says:

    I’ll stick with the spuriously original counterfeit John “Bogus” Motlz with his fake and misleading pseudo Applesk rantings.

  29. Lastly in the fake roundup there is Fake Peter Oppenheimer at http://fakeoppenheimer.blogspot.com/

  30. Doc Wolfram says:

    Well, here is one grouchy old man. We aren’t anywhere near MY number yet! Slackers, lets keep posting.

    (At least we have passed HALF my age…)

  31. Dr. Who says:

    Right on Doc. You tell those young whippersnappers!! They need to get a single post up around the Mega Post range. I’d have posted sooner but there was a sale on Geritol at the Walgreens I couldn’t pass up.
