Depending upon who you talk to or read, Steve Jobs somehow ‘lied’ to technology experts when he introduced the iPhone. How? Why? The iPhone wasn’t finished yet. Wil Gomez directs another stupid argument.
Steve Jobs gave a preview of the original iPhone in 2007, months before it was released. Yes, anyone with a modicum of understanding of how hardware and software works knows the product used in a pre-release show’n tell is flawed. The original iPhone was also flawed when released back in 2007 and will be flawed when released later this year.
That’s how it works. To say Jobs lied about the iPhone or misled an auditorium full of experienced technology and media people is to gin up a controversy where none existed, and where none exists today.
Jobs said many things that may have been untrue, but the iPhone’s introduction was not one of them. That’s how the industry works.
