My name is Cédric Bozzi. I make websites and apps, and this is my blog dedicated to technology: here you’ll find news, opinions and reviews, all written by a Mac-head who tends to have definite opinions about stuff.
Normally I’d say Apple engineered this article so that the public (or media, since the public doesn’t care that much, if at all) would know in advance that there wasn’t gonna be an iPhone 4 recall tomorrow — to manage their expectations, as Gruber writes — but this bit doesn’t really belong in a shill piece:
Apple engineers were aware of the risks associated with the new antenna design as early as a year ago, but Mr. Jobs liked the design so much that Apple went ahead with its development, said a person familiar with the matter.
Steve Jobs, not at all going mad with power.
Or: we’re damned if he leaves, damned if he doesn’t.
(In the real world this would be too absurd to believe, but it just fits with Jobs’s first email response on the subject, doesn’t it?)
