What, they finally got their A team off of the stupid Ping project and got them on something important, like fixing their flagship product?
Apple should be ashamed of themselves and their inability to execute anything.
I am truly an Apple fan, but I have to comment again how bad they screwed this one up. There are MILLIONS of 3g users out there who have used a product that was broken for 4 months? Take for example Monopoly. I love playing this game on my phone, but it has been almost unplayable since the upgrade. Consistent memory errors, very slow, and crashed about every 4 times playing it. Don't even get me started about trying to play my music through the game. Now since the upgrade the game has NO errors, never crashes (at least not the 5 times I have played since upgrading), and is downright fast.
People will say be happy? No, they should not release software upgrades that literally break the phone. Unacceptable. My hope is they will learn from this gaff. I love apple, but very disappointed I had to use a crappy phone since the upgrade. For those who say I should have gone back are missing the point.
