Forget the guy that developed the programming language most major OS'es are created on, or Unix, you know, that little free OS Jobs and Woz took, polished and resold. Forget one of the founding fathers of the industry that made pretty much everything Jobs sold possible...the marketing guy, he's the real inspiration and blessing to the world. GTFOH

When Xerox bosses were shown the first mouse they laughed at it; if it wasn't for Steve Jobs it might have just stayed in a lab and never popularised, Apple took away a the concept and created something that didn't cost $200 to make and was a lot simpler for people to understand.

I've never said that these types of people are unimportant. It takes the visionary people like Jobs to make the ideas successful though.

This stuff happens all the time no matter how high quality a product is produced. They did initially deny all of these issues, they eventually acknowledged and reacted properly once customer outcry became loud enough.

Apple's stance is always to investigate these matters anyway, the whole iPhone 4 antenna issue was blown way out of proportion anyway.

The only reason people make a big deal out these things is because it's Apple.

LMFAO, YOUR CALL DROPPED IF YOU HELD YOUR PHONE IN YOUR LEFT HAND!! GTFOH There's a reason they offered thousands of FREE bumper cases and redesigned the antenna for the iPhone 4 S. When they made the announcement about the cases there was literally a line halfway around the block here at the SF Apple store. Wow, you never cease to amaze me in your justification. Aww, poor wittle Apple, getting picked on by everyone.
