  1. LOL. And the lemmings will continue to fall off the cliff…

  2. What other company would have responded so quickly? Not Google, not Microsoft, not anyone. Apple is NOT perfect… but they DO respond faster than anyone else on fixing software issues…having used all of the above companies.

  3. Ten million new iPhones sold the first weekend and nine complaints. I would say that is a pretty good track record for quality. Most of this is media hype and nothing more. Apple is where they are today because they are responsive to customer needs and their service is excellent. Other companies could take a lesson.

  4. 8.0.2 is causing the same problems.
