On the other hand; did anyone else find it sad that just because Steve Jobs wasn't there marketing to them people are upset with Apple now? I mean they didn't complain about the 2 versions of the iphone3 and yet they're all upset that Apple is following the same business strategy it had under Jobs? I may not like Apple from a business stand point but I have to say it's just sad how fickle people really are. Maybe Apple should just make a robotic version of Jobs so they can stay afloat. It's like people don't think Apple can survive without him.
