It couldn't be could it that Martin's technology had failed rather than Apple's?
This is what Martin tells us about himself. "Could anyone be better suited to writing about tourism?" he asks. With his colourful language he seems perfect for the job.
What's more he claims to have once written a "po-faced paper" called "Managing Perceptions: The Care and Feeding of the Media," which he delivered at a Tourism Law and Management seminar.
What kind of perception does he think his free use of four-letter words on Twitter creates. It makes him out to be a guttersnipe type character.

Wallington is a former journalist so perhaps this accounted for his reluctance to discuss the activities of another one.
Esther de Villiers Editor of CXPRESS, a free Garden Route community paper said Martin should not have her paper on his client list as he "last wrote a column for us many, many moons ago." She added that social media left her "rather cold" particularly because of the "forum it creates for users of all manner of sub-standard language."

And finally he sums up his own behavior perfectly with this Tweet.

people you do business with; your employer;
your wife, if you have one and small children).
