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.

... honestly I really like Mr. Sculley, he seems to be a rather genuine and adult/rational person, which is refreshing given the current crop of CEOs. So it was a pleasure to get some honest opinions/hindsight from people who are/were "inside" the beast so to speak.

The comments section is what really frightens me, seriously Apple has some weirdly ill adjusted fans. Apple's products are just a neat shell for a microprocessor board, not a philosophy which explains the meaning of life....
