Another crazy-assed, hit-whoring article from Seeking Alpha, which is quickly becoming like Gawker publications—high as a kite on sensationalism, low on facts or insightful analysis.
The latest from Sam Diaz equates Apple’s iPhone 4 antenna problems with Windows Vista.
I can’t help but wonder if the folks in Cupertino are getting a little taste of what Redmond must have been feeling when everyone was bashing Windows Vista – stuck between a rock and a hard place because there’s really no quick answer to give iPhone owners.
And this analogy is like Windows Vista how? Vista was hated by users and businesses, who quickly backtracked to Windows XP. Who is backtracking to iPhone 3GS? Who is standing in line to return their iPhone 4’s?
The iPhone was the pioneer, a company that redefined smartphones and single-handedly changed the entire ecosystem of apps as a business – just like Microsoft did when it originally introduced the Windows operating system to personal computing.
Fine. Except that Microsoft did no such thing. It was already the business and home PC leader (MS-DOS) when Windows was introduced. Apple’s Mac never led anything except mindshare—similar to the iPhone today.
