Wow. Just watched Iphone4 introduction by Steve Jobs.
Now I'm really convinced there is deep rooted institutional bias against RIM. I watched the iphone4 introduction by Steve Jobs where he showed off the Iphone4 and called it revolutionary in terms of design and features compared to Iphone3 and everything out there. The changes between the 4 and 3 generations are hardly distinguishable.
The man had the thick face of putting it next to the Iphone 3 which looked identical and the crowd sees no difference in design and yet they applaud him. They laugh at his every word.
Then his demo fails where he tried to load NY Times on both 3 and 4 where 3 loaded the website within seconds and 4 failed to load. Then he cracked a joke about the audience should turn off their WIFI. Instead, he showed an offline pic which again looked the same on 3 and 4. If RIM failed on a browser load, the crowd would go crazy. But it's Apple and Steve Jobs, so Americans laughed it off like sheep eager to please.
This is American protectionism at itself. They would applaud at anything their own and trash anything not theirs. No wonder the country is failing.
