The bigger problem is all the idiots who watch her show and will buy in to the idea that the iPhone OS is difficult to use. If just half the Oprah drones are also DeGeneres drones, Apple could have a cause to complain. You only have to look at the impact Oprah had on the Kindle sales when she praised it. All the Oprah drones ran out and bought them (two of them are my wife's parents). Imagine if Oprah has said it was hard to use! Oprah praised the iPad a week or so ago and hinted that it had replaced her Kindle. You might have missed the hasty post show retraction because Amazon does not want the Oprah drones jumping ship and seeing what a real device is like.
It is all about perception and Apple is justifiably touchy with the Android OS nipping at their heels.
