iPhone 4 issues? Our guys got it right IMHO
Posted by: OWC Larry

A great blog, if I do say so, by Mike and Grant at OWC:

[blog.macsales.com]

Apple is a victim of their own success... and while they might provide the paint used for that target on their head - none the less, talk about something getting overblown. When comments too coming from 'experts' that then top it off by saying they don't like AT&T's network to begin with (ok, join the party - legitimate complaint - but not in this issue's context) - so that's you're real beef, why are you even qualified to talk about the iPhone then at all? And the now 'infamous' email from Jobs saying to hold the phone differently popping up in reputable news site articles - except that debunked as being from Jobs.

Apple used to be the underdog... and now - they are the best in a lot of ways and the role reverses. The only I will say is that just a tad more humility, or perhaps a bit less arrogance sure might offer benefit.

And all said - I really like the iPhone 4 and no plans to return. And we have a case for that. smiling smiley

I want to see Jobs sitting down holding a bag filled with Bumpers, his back to the crowd, tossing them one by one over his head, the reporters jumping up to get them like single ladies squealing and grasping for the garter at a wedding reception.

And then everyone can go back to hating him, and Apple, for not "addressing the real issue."

And next Tuesday when AAPL announces earnings, everyone will remember that those lines outside Apple Stores were not the return line.

You know you've hit the big time when you are on the nightly news right after the story about Lindsey Lohan's latest escapade.

That would be great!

But in typical Stevie fashion, he'd probably just tell them to look under their seat.

by believing all possible evil of evil men.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

Mister, that's a ten-gallon hat on a twenty-gallon head.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

The extremes run both ways. When an inanimate object is deified, anything can happen. People invest more than their money, they invest their emotions and the media knows that. I'm sure a simple quiet fix will "cure" future iPhones (probably already done).

Sure, but what will every other cell phone manufacturer do to cure the same problem on their phones?

Their phones aren't perceived to be the cure for cancer like the iPhone is so there is no expectation of perfection.

Agreed.

Prior to the i4, I don't recall anybody ever mentioning that they lose bars and possibly drop calls when holding their brand of phone.

Maybe somewhere somebody did, but it obviously didn't have the Butterfly Effect of Apple.

What was it the Green Goblin said in the first Spider-Man movie? The only thing people like more than a hero is seeing a hero fall. Same basic situation.

Some people just love hatin'.

I cannot think of a more apt observation than the one above - and is applicable to so many different situations, past & present.
