It might be fun if a slough of people pay a penalty to switch to Verizon only to discover that the Verizon network's not robust enough for the pounding iPhone users will undoubtedly deliver to it. It'll be a replay of the whining that occurred with the first iPhone update.

Heck the XServes were innovative, striking, and influential, but they didn't really leverage Apple's existing advantages enough, and the best parts were simply copied in a more economical way by competitors. As innovative as the X Serves were, they were rather pricy. Apple has an overarching strategy that of creating synergy through recursive simplification and reuse; product lines, components, etc. Hardware—CPUs, GPUs, Memory, cameras, displays; OS—OS X, OS X Sever, i...
