Do not call us drama-queens, because Steve would have apologised, If he felt the quality is not near prefect.
I do agree the flaws are low in numbers, but you can not tell me as Apple fan, you wouldn't be little upset to see your new iPhone is less than prefect. You have every right too has a individual.
That's why we have return/replacemenr policies, second to no other company.
Steve would have apologised? Is this the same Steve who told you you were holding your phone wrong? And I don't remember Steve apologising for the cracked cases on the G4 cube.
It seems to me that a lot of Apple fans have chosen to forget a lot of the daft things Steve did.
Let's also not forget that he also made the single greatest error of judgement in Apple's history: putting Schmidt on his board of directors. If he hadn't done then they wouldn't be fighting Android for market share and spending millions in litigation against Samsung. If he hadn't done that then we wouldn't be sitting through of MapGate right now.
Yes, Steve was the best CEO in recent history, but he wasn't perfect.
One more thing:
If you've ever met a real, non-OCD, normal Apple user who isn't influenced by every post she reads on the Internet, then you might notice that they're not concerned with scratches and bumps. She even uses the scratches and bumps to spot her phone on a lunch table littered with them.
But most people will just put the damn thing in case.
