Also, if understanding that Apple is not the work of the devil and the sole blame for everything that something thinks is bad or wrong with all things associated with Apple makes me an 'apologist' then I guess I am one. I guess I'm also an TV Network Apologist as well cause I'm smart enough to understanding how ratings and show cancellations work and I don't blame it all on 'the morons that run the tv networks'
but you know what, in that case, I'm proud to be an Apologist. I consider it a sign of my higher understanding of how the world really works.
If the discussion turns to TV, I will remember you. You did seem to conveniently ignore my statement about how other global networks can stand the load of having an iPhone tethered to a computer. Maybe you missed but this was the #1 argument around here. Poor AT&T's network just can not handle the load. Well that is AT&T's fault. Other networks around the world are doing just fine with tethering so anything less is pandering to AT&T and yes apologizing for their lack of planning and management. If you want to own this, then by all means do so.
I never said Apple was the source of all things bad but in the case of several things iPhone related, they are not the beacon of light that they try to portray. Apple is no better than Microsoft, Dell, etc.... They are out to make as much money as possible and to provide as little as possible in the process. I can deal with a sentiment like this but what I have a hard time with is the "we are better and look out for the consumer" mantra that they try to espouse and their followers evangelize.
Sooooo, your "so-called" higher understanding is not really that high as it does not apply here. Yup, we are clear no. Thanks for stopping by.
