Apple wireless testing lab a work of fiction?


Call me a cynic but when Apple takes a group of journo’s on a secret back street tour of Cupertino and ushers them into the wireless testing rooms I feel that it’s so much like science fiction – that it is! I mean come on. Apple have been caught pants down on this design flaw in the iphone 4. And in the scramble to right the situation I’m sure there have been long nights spent with PR hacks in rooms trying to come up with the best way out for Apple. Including free cases and refunds and keeping Steve Jobs off the airwaves as he seems to put his foot in his mouth a fair bit (his solution – hold the phone a different way – wacked). I have nothng to back this up but I think Apple spent some money and built this hollywood set to get massive media covergae (achieved) and reel back some of the negative comments about them not seeing these issues in testing. OK so if you did see these issues in testing then why did you not fix them? You can’t tell me with Apple’s “genius'” of which we hear so much they coldn’t fix this problem? RIM can, Nokia can. Apple probably can – they just screwed up.
