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.

You're probably right that it was blown out of proportion but I think what really allowed this grassfire to explode in something worse is that Apple simply made up excuses and denied the issue even existed, when it clearly was present. It was the arrogence of their response.

I would have thought Apple would know to not try and fight the press.
