This just in, Jobs is still a douche, but this is pretty cool looking:

    Just goes to show you that even with the best testing equipment in the world, you can still fail if you have bad methodology.

      I was half expecting the narrator to, after saying "we spent hundreds of millions of dollars [bla bla]", end with "... and we didn't frigging test bridging the antennas with a sweaty palm!".

      So who knows somebody with a similar voice? Remix time!

    but this room must cost more than a few hundred dollars per hour to rent in the middle of the night. Ultimately, as nice as this chamber is, it does nothing to explain their problem. Nice try.

    Hmmm.. That second image reminds of a level in Doom...

    Wow, that first article reads like something from the Onion or Fake Steve.

    I think Job's health problems are beginning to make him crazy.

    • lionsphil says:

      I think Jobs has been crazy for a long time; it's just that the crazy used to be mostly harmless, if not beneficial.

      Telling him to "lose the attitude" is kind of like asking Ballmer to lose the bombastic, sweaty shouting.

      I think Apple's level of craziness has been a constant here and what we're seeing is the wider world starting to recognize and react to it.

      This is all backlash after the more-free-advertising-than-you-could-ever-hope-for from the prototype "theft" and AT&T's inability to make the cost of service go down to "affordable" levels. And Apple's American touches [locking, incompatible SIMs] have been irritating the Europeans who happen to supply most of the world's cellphone-related press. [Not to mention print media having just given them a codependent pass on the iPad and starting to get fatigued from covering every move by their new masters - Apple's looking healthier than their own employers, now, so suddenly it's not fandom, it's business.]

      I think AT&T's trouble with wireless (and yet they did so well with "Project Pronto", and no worse than Verizon or cable with the U-Verse buildout) speaks to some systemic failures (it really is a big production to put up any sort of cell tower compared to plonking a U-Verse cabinet in your front yard) and a possible opening for WiMAX or whoever manages to get some sort of consumer-grade mesh-routing thing going. T should be putting picocells in every U-Verse cabinet or doing subsidized residential service [go up a speed bin or get a month a year 'free' if you let them bum a couple K/s off the top for iPhones in range], but whatever's holding that up can't entirely be their own fault, can it?

    I love watching Jobsy get all butthurt on those rare occasions when the media bothers to be critical of his company.
