well done apple - for once, they did the opposite of ignoring a problem - they overreacted to the customer's benefit. AND with very minimal cost to the company. Everyone wins. Should shut down any further discussion on the matter.

Not everyone. Do you realize that those stupid bumpers were $29 of near pure profit. Not being able to sell rubber bands for $29 apiece is going to negatively impact the share price, which directly affects my portfolio. angry villagers smiley



"In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion." (1987) -- Carl Sagan

What if I don't want a rubber band around my iPhone? Did he acknowledge that there is a problem after all?

Agreed.

Don't buy an i4.
Get a free case of your choosing.
Return it.
