By my calculations, I still have fifteen minutes of fame left


Recently, I came across a piece written by Tim Worstall, a regular contributor at Forbes, about Apple.  I left a comment on that article and asked Tim to check out my post, Comparing Apples to Apples, that I wrote regarding the possibility of Apple making iPads in the U.S.  On Sunday morning I got an email from Tim telling me he had read my post Comparing Apples to Apples and had responded to it.  He included a link in the email which sent me to his article in Forbes that subjected my post to his expert analysis.

A couple of thoughts on Tim’s article on my post.  First, while Tim disagreed with a lot of what I wrote in my post, he was incredibly gracious and kind in finding fault with my analysis.  Most criticism on the internet is amazingly mean-spirited and sarcastic, so Tim’s good manners in criticizing my post were really appreciated.  It was like being slapped with a few strings of yarn, rather than a gloved hand.  Second, I was really exciting to see my ideas being analyzed in an article on the website of one of the mainstream business magazines in circulation in this country.  I am researching each of Tim’s critiques of my post and will provide a response to his article later this week.
