Re: Does make you wonder
Bendgate is only a small part of the larger embarassment of this opening. It is now aggravated by pretending it hasn't happened, is only a minor few off the same assembly line, or is exaggerated (besides that inconvenience Ms. Lincoln, how was that play?). The complete system included iOS 8 which is already on its third iteration (8.0.2 ?) only days out of opening gate due to serious, evident flaws. Apple's reputation was hit, the world is laughing, and their stock prices justifiably reflect it. Apple is not alone however (look no further than the daily product recalls) and others should seriously ask themselves if meeting an advertised deadline at all costs is more important than a week's delay to ensure a quality product hits the streets. Americans deal with failure by poking fun at it, thankfully Apple's pocket book is deep enough to absorb the fallout where others companies could not.
