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.

The "matching shades of white" was a common theory in a lot of podcasts (Mac OS Ken, MacBreak Weekly, TNT, TWiT, Engadget and probably others.) I don't remember anyone claiming is was "fact" but I remember it being discussed as is it was.

EDIT - oh, and my point - this was a month ago.
