John Gruber rips apart Adam L. Penenberg’s Fast Company cover story on Apple

This morning I picked up the latest copy of Fast Company to read on a flight to Vancouver. The cover story, All Eyes On Apple questions whether Steve Jobs and company can maintain the incredible growth and success of 2007.

Daring Fireball is one of the sites that makes the Internet such a great place. John Gruber wrote an excellent piece that rips apart Adam L. Penenberg’s feature for Fast Company. Gruber is one of the few people that takes the time to critically examine popular news stories about Apple and point out their inaccuracies.

I love the title of his latest blog entry — Yet Another in the Ongoing Series Wherein I Examine a Piece of Supposedly Serious Apple Analysis From a Major Media Outlet and Dissect Its Inaccuracies, Fabrications, and Exaggerations Point-by-Point, Despite the Fact That No Matter How Egregious the Inaccuracies / Fabrications / Exaggerations, Such Pieces Inevitably Lead to Accusations That I’m Some Sort of Knee-Jerk Shill Who Rails Against Anything ‘Anti-Apple’ Simply for the Sake of Defending Apple, and if I Love Apple So Much Why Don’t I Just Marry Them?
