This whole thing is turning into a PR disaster for Apple... Some variation on the Streisand Effect.

When Apple first posted the "apology" Gruber et al all whooped up how clever Apple was. A bit of blowback now.

Hardly a PR disaster. 99% of Apple customers don't have a clue this is even going on.

In this case, the variation is "a bunch of nerds try desperately to make a mountain out of a molehill and nobody cares except themselves".

Maybe we should come up with a new name.

The "Kardashian Effect"?

After all, nobody gives a fuck about her :)

Oh, such a disaster. The UK legal system is shown to be the joke it is, sowing contempt among thinking people everywhere.

The mindless apple haters whoop and cheer and continue their petulant childishness.

Samsung, and android, still fail in the marketplace, which, at least for now, values technical innovation over counterfiet crap.

You think Samsung and Android are failing in the marketplace? boggle Samsung alone has double the smartphone market share that Apple has...

You can safely ignore any comment that nirvana makes to any thread where Apple is mentioned.

Careful, you'll break the reality distortion bubble!
