Comments on: Yahoo Chief slams Apple’s iAd Where media and technology meet Wed, 16 Nov 2016 08:48:25 +0000 hourly 1 By: ChristopherD Thu, 16 Sep 2010 23:40:39 +0000 Bartz’s comments may also simply be that Apple-bashing is in vogue and generates tons of free publicity. Negative forecasting of a hot property carries the gravitas of deep tech insider knowledge, yet requires nothing substantial for corroborating evidence.

This is not to say that she may not be proven right in the long run, but is it because she researched Apple’s failures over time and sees a pattern in iAd like what we saw with the Pippin or IIVX failures? Is it that “Jobsean control” over the App Store and iOS have proven to be such failures (which would require her to clarify her definition of “failure”).

Or would it be more likely that she just took a wild swing using the latest buzz-kill trending of Apple and it just so happens that this time it proves true?
