A friend sent me this quote:
No way that “the market” forced Apple to do anything. Steve Jobs is the undisputed master of all reality. Surely Mac loyalists will find some way to spin this… I know! Steve didn’t want all that money anyway, so he decided to lower prices of his own volition. Surely he will soon lower prices on the iPhone and the iPod, right?

One thought on “Quote of the day”
I would love to be a fly on the wall at one of those Apple PR strategy meetings:
PR chick 1: But EDGE is an obsolete technology, how are we going to release it in Europe where 3G is the norm?
Steve: Easy, we’ll instruct our carrier partners to announce that they have the “largest nationwide EDGE network”. Nobody there really remembers what EDGE is anyway.
PR chick 2: Is that enough?
Steve: We’ll also throw in the battery life argument. 3G sucks battery life like a Thai hooker. No journalist will be smart enough to ask us to compare that to wifi energy consumption.
