Okay, okay. This Steve Jobs presser parody video was too hard to pass up

The weird thing is, despite Steve Jobs being the butt of the joke below, most of my Apple-fan friends will see this as a “tribute piece.” I guess that’s why it’s called irony.

As a reminder to those just catching what has accidentally become “a series” of posts, I’ll not that my recent rants have not complained about Apple products — even the iPhone 4, which I own — but on the surreal way in which the company responded to the complaints about the antenna, specifically the way in which the company first denied and ignored the complaints for 22 days.

    aha, interestig and amazing! hmm, most of my Apple-fan friends will see this as a “tribute piece.” I guess that’s why it’s called irony, this is not irony, but loyalty!
    Ofcourse, quite a few people have had alot of problems with the Iphone 4, but it does have its positives. Like said, it has longer battery lif and I also love the design of it. Its resolution astounded me for some reason.

  • This is why I have said, over and over and over, the issue here is not with Apple's products. It is with the way in which the company responding to this controvery — and anything negative: by ignoring it and then attacking bloggers and reporters. It is their achilles heel. Because I am a fan, I want Apple to be perfect: Not just perfect in longer battery life and better HD video recording.
