Thread: The Apple Clickbait Generator
07-09-2014, 12:34 AM #1The Apple Clickbait Generator
I got a kick out of this. Refresh the page, and you'll get a randomly generated rant that mimics the seemingly endless articles by various pundits predicting how Apple has lost it, is doomed, etc etc.
It reminds me of another similar gag.... Scott Pakin's automatic complaint-letter generator. I plugged in a pal's name into that once; send him an IM saying someone was writing some awful stuff about him; and he went ballistic. LOL! Yeah... I can be mean.

Think to be fair to GrannySue the exclamation mark serves as an emoticon.
Whatever happened to the attempt to rid the world of emoticons? Remember the petitions?Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

Just Kidding! I waste more time during the day than I accomplish anything! That's what happens who you are re-tired! Besides I don't know now to show emotions on here yet! I have a very wicked sense of humor to be a Pastor's wife.

I was teasing of course. I'm sure there is some way that his creation could be used in a beneficial way. Annoying spouse, kids, parents? My kids are 39 and 41 and anything I can find to annoy them gives me great joy. I figure I have to get it all in before I pass on so it will last them.

Once you get the hang of it...you don't need to click on them...you can just use the keyboard equivalents. Such as:
: ) =
: ( =
; ) =
I used a space between the colon and the parenthese so that the smiley wouldn't show. If using the keyboard shortcut...omit the space to get the emoticon.

I was doing quick replies, therefore the did not show up! Now I know to use the Reply instead of quick reply! Get ready for lots of smiles!
