“Is Jobs really commenting on other manufacturers’ reception to make up for his own design flaw? I’m surely seeing this wrong …”

“….ok, Ben gestopt met het volgen van dat huilverhaal van dat vruchtje…. heb betere dingen te doen… Hij maakt de industrie zwart…”

“… okay, I’ve stopped following the cry story of the ‘litte fruit’ … got better things to do … He’s making the whole industry look bad …”

“LOL… Ik krijg veel reply-tweets van mensen die willen weten hoe ze hun HTC moeten vasthouden om de ontvangst te laten verdwijnen…”

“LOL … I’m getting a lot of tweets from people who want to know how to hold their HTC in the wrong way, to lose reception …”

“Looking at the responses by the industry, yesterday’s press conference might make a nice marketing case for students in 2020.”
