The once relevant and somewhat funny guy who wrote the “Fake Steve Jobs Blog”, Dan Lyons, had this to say:
But Apple’s big weakness is its control-freak nature and insistence that there is only one way to make a smart phone. No matter how many carriers sign on to carry the iPhone, in the long run, Apple has again set itself up to be a niche player in smartphones, just as it is in PCs.
Clearly the iPhone is niche — I mean it isn’t like your mom or grandparents want one. Obviously people hate the fact that Apple insists you do it their way, that is why iPhone sales are just tiny.
Wait actually my Mom does have an iPhone as do many grandparents and Apple is selling iPhones left and right.
The only thing clear is that Dan Lyons has now taken to writing garbage sensational headlines.
