The Orange View (on hiatus) Because Apple is great but it isn't perfect

Steve Jobs, whiner in chief

ZDNet's Rupert Goodwins looks at Steve Jobs' public statements and finds a common thread:

Steve Jobs normally talks to the press about as often as the Earth gets visited by Halley's Comet. And, like the comet, it's usually a portent of doom.  
There have been three sightings in living memory: the iPhone 4's Antennagate, the as-yet-unexplained rant against Android and tablets in last October's earnings call, and yesterday's response to the discovery of iOS 4's unexpectedly good memory for location. Let's call it Trackergate.

  1. Hit the nail on the head. Apple makes strong, beautiful products. It’s a shame that those products are ruined by a wrongheaded and almost sociopathic desire for control and self-aggrandizement.

  2. We will see who is whining when Apple releases an enhanced iOS and a $99 8GB iPhone 4 that works with iCloud doing things Android’s cheap copycats have no prayer of competing with this holiday season.

    Remember it took Android over 2 full years to get a decent copycat version of iOS. The hardware is easy to copy, the software, not so much.

    The integrated iOS, iCloud, low storage ecosystem is going to put Apple another 2 years ahead.
