SKATE TO WHERE THE PUCK IS GO­ING

Mac Format - - CONTACTS -

Just sat down with my newly-re­ceived Au­tumn is­sue (#318) of your ex­cel­lent mag­a­zine. How­ever, I think you’ve mis­tak­enly at­trib­uted the “skate to where the puck is go­ing” quote used by Tim Cook to Wal­ter Gret­zky, whereas it was his son Wayne, the all-time great­est ice hockey player who ac­tu­ally used those words! BY ROGER HOB­SON

GRA­HAM SAYS…

Af­ter stren­u­ous fact check­ing us­ing Google, it ap­pears the sit­u­a­tion is best de­scribed as ‘com­pli­cated’, Roger! While Wayne (the fa­mous ice hockey player) fa­mously said it, he was quot­ing his old man, Wal­ter. All my re­search did throw up one funny fact though – Wayne was hired by Black­berry to launch its new Pass­port phone in 2014, but mis­quoted it as “go to where the puck is”, be­fore cor­rect­ing him­self. Sadly, for the fate of the com­pany, it seems he was ac­tu­ally be­ing quite ac­cu­rate.

The Ap­ple Magic Mouse 2 has what some con­sider a fun­da­men­tal de­sign flaw.
