 iPhones Target the Tech Elite ­ Quotes Assignment     In “iPhones Target the Tech Elite,” the author, Michael Macedonia, appeals to logic to convince  his readers that the launch of Apple’s integrated iPhone will impact technical, financial, and  cultural domains in society. One example of how this is shown is when he explains how great of  a “technical marvel” the iPhone will be, presenting the product’s characteristics in the quote “in  the tradition of Apple, the iPhone emphasizes aesthetics over features. The device is thin at  11.6 mm, but provides a large, clean display. The iPhone lacks keys, instead using a 3.5­inch,  480 x 320 pixel touch screen … the device also has a multitude of wireless capabilities,  including multiple flavors of GSM, Bluetooth 2.0, and WiFi 802.11 b/g.” He goes on to state  more facts and statistics in regards to the new device, which is psychologically causing the  reader to appreciate this unknown device. He goes on to reveal predictions, stating that “if the  iPhone meets expectations, it could create a new, unpredictable dynamic in the mobile phone  marketplace,” which causes excitement in the audience.        Identifying Ethos, Pathos, and Logos     The purpose of this article is to inform the audience of a tragedy that involved a young  girl being fatally stabbed in a fight by an adolescent. The author of this article, William  Lee, of the Chicago Tribune, appeals to ethos, logos, and pathos throughout his article.  Logos, in essence, uses facts and statistics to back up the points, and this is seen in the  article when it states “​The 13­year­old and her mother, Tamika Gayden, 35, were  charged Tuesday with first­degree murder in the Saturday night slaying of DeKayla  Dansberry” (Lee.) This is giving us the facts of the article in one sentence. The author  goes on to tie this case to a previous one in history, also giving the facts to the grounds  upon which the shooter’s uncle was arrested, in the quote “The case is reminiscent of  the 2014 slaying of Endia Martin, a 14­year­old fatally shot by another girl … The uncle  of the alleged shooter in that case was sentenced to 100 years in prison in March for  giving his niece the .38 Special” (Lee.) Pathos is the emotional response the author is  attempting to invoke in the reader, and this is littered throughout the article as well. One  example of this is when empathy for the killer is appealed to in the quote ​ “The  13­year­old girl cried out, “I killed her, I killed her” after using a knife provided by her  mother to fatally stab a girl just two years older” (Lee.) Her age is provided to the reader  because this causes feelings of sympathy because of how young the girl is. To add on  to the feelings of pity, it added that she “cried out.” The specific means of killing, that the  girl was “stabbed” was mentioned as well, because it depicts an image in the reader’s  mind, as that word has a negative and fearful connotation. Stating that the victim was  “just two years older” is another example of appealing to the reader’s sympathy, as the  victim is also a young girl who did not deserve this misfortunate. Another example from  the article that appeals to the audience’s emotions is when it describes the killer as “the  girl, with brown hair that fell past her shoulders and dressed in a navy blue detention  jumpsuit” (Lee), because it depicts a young and vulnerable child. To appeal to the  reader’s sorrow, the article states memories of the victim, and a comment from her  mother, describing her as “an outgoing, sociable athlete … often talked about running  track at school and was planning for the state meet” (Lee.) Lastly, ethos is the credibility  of the author’s words, and was shown in the article because the author is a contact  reporter who is covering the incident, rather than a citizen of the town who may be  biased towards the scenario from what they have seen or heard. Furthermore, he is  working for the Chicago Tribune, a well known, reliable newspaper. The author  establishes ethos in the followin​ g quote “De'Kayla's parents attended the hearing. Her  mother wept silently and trembled as the prosecutor laid out the accusations against the  13­year­old” (Lee.) This is credible because prosecutor has the necessary certifications  to lay accusations against a criminal. In essence, Lee has accurately appealed to, as  much as one can in the coverage of a tragedy, logos, pathos, and ethos.  Article can be read at:­girl­13­charged­with­fatally­stabbi ng­girl­16­during­fight­20160517­story.html
