We’re not going to resummarize the whole Apple “iPhone 4 Antenna” press conference; every other tech blog has already done that, many of them in real time.
As OWC Mike H. said to me earlier today, it was eerie how some of what Steve said had been channeled in our post last night. Maybe that’s because, being in the same industry, we live the same passions for serving our customers and creating (sorry Steve but it is a great line) insanely great products. I felt his comments today were spot on…and even his use of the word “bulls***”… well… that is kind of an old-school word and really does cut to the bone when “calling it like it is.”
One point he raised that I had in (but later removed from) my post last night was about Apple being an American company. Do any of the lynch mobs realize just how important Apple is to our economy and how many ancillary jobs (like yours truly for example) they help to create? I’d say what was misquoted in the 1950’s by the president of GM, “What’s good for General Motors is good for the country.” could be changed to a modern day and correct version of “What has been good for our country has been good for Apple and vice versa.”
Economy aside, Bloomberg had better ante up some serious proof of the knowledge of antenna concerns they contend they were privy to or Apple just may be adding a new content source to their portfolio…
Dang… it must be a slow summer in the news rooms for all this noise.
Hmm… you know… this could be a redirect from the highest levels…
Now there’s a story to contemplate… ;-)
