Apple Is it an indication of Steve Jobs' (in)famous strive for perfection, or just stupid bone-headedness? The white variant of the iPhone 4 was first delayed for a few weeks, but those few weeks became 'end of the year'. Now we know why: the manufacturers Apple employs are apparently having issues matching the shades of white of the various components. This anecdote ties in nicely with a very interesting interview with John Sculley about Steve Jobs' ways of doing business.

What a complete bullshit. I wanted to say this even to the post above.


I've got a Macbook Pro, and it suck. End of story.

Sure laptops in general probably suck much more than desktops, and even more so than workstations. I'd still assume an IBM Thinkpad would had been much better.

And atleast I definitely didn't got what I paid for. How the fuck can someone say that about any Apple product? Unless you think "paying for brand" matters.
