Fake Steve Jobs blog creator opines on the new iPhone as "boring", says visionary CEO replaced with a number-cruncher
You remember the famous Secret Diary of Steve Jobs aka Fake Steve Jobs aka FSJ blog? It was started by the Newsweek tech editor Dan Lyons, who took it down after it became clear that SJ is terminally ill. 

Dan's identity remained a secret for a long time, and provided us with an endless stream of hilarious posts, which were as serious about the happenings in the Silicon Valley, as they were entertaining, Onion-style.

Well, Dan Lyons came up with a big editorial today, and it is not for the faint of heart Apple fans. Basically he dissects the year during which Steve Jobs is no longer running Apple, and concludes that, while doing great financially, Cupertino needs to step up its game productwise. Here are some notable quotes from his opinion piece:



Of course, it's quite premature to judge anything before it has been even announced, and Apple's stock keeps hitting new highs, with analysts predicting record sales and bottomline contribution for the new 4G iPhone. It is also true that this is the season when Apple will face the stiffest smartphone competition it has ever encountered, so what do you think? 

Will the new iPhone boost Apple's market share significantly like with every previous iPhone launch, and will it regain the lost ground against Samsung and Android like last year, or "this time will be different"?
