Can you believe it? It's 2015 and people are still writing "Steve Jobs would never" on their cheques.
"7 things Steve Jobs would have hated about Apple today" (indirect link)
Inexplicably, some still pretend to know what Steve Jobs would think about things. No, they will never stop. But, to be fair, Cult of Mac knows Steve Jobs would have hated these things because [clown horn] honk-honk [slide whistle] doooooooooooop [very long seltzer spray] pssssssssssssssssssssssssssssht
For future reference, here are the rules about presuming to write about what Steve Jobs would have thought of anything:
A) Unless you are Laurene Powell Jobs, do not attempt to write about what Steve Jobs would have thought of anything.

Perhaps there should be some sort of contest, à la America's Got Talent where the most talented Apple executives are pitted against each other and judged by celebrities and then the most talented one is fired. How better to deal with Apple's surfeit of superstars?
Technically, Siri arrived while Jobs was still at Apple.

The iOS update that bricked the iPhone 6
As opposed to Tim Cook who loved the iOS update that bricked the iPhone 6.
A lack of black turtlenecks
"I'm very uncomfortable with what I wrote so I'll throw a joke in at the end! HA-HA! J/K! Please don't verbally abuse me in the comments! I'm being held captive by Leander Kahney! He makes me write these things!"
The nicest things the Macalope can say about this list are that it wasn't 10 things and it wasn't a slide show. So...
