Today Steve Jobs shocked the world by making some unexpected apologies at a press conference in Cupertino, CA.
He announced to a stunned press pack, “I am sorry. We lost our way.”
As reporters dropped their iPhones in shock, he continued, “We made too much money and became too complacent and arrogant. Too many of our employees behaved like Comic Shop Guy out of The Simpsons. Too many of our products contained design flaws which we denied until the bitter end. This will change.”
“For too long I pursued a petty feud against Adobe, forgetting that without Adobe, the Macintosh would never have been a success even in its niche design markets. Today we are allowing Flash on iOS. We are launching low-spec, low-cost versions of the MacMini and MacBook, and we are cutting the cost of the iPad. We’d like to apologise to everyone whose iTunes accounts were compromised. And we promise to answer the phone when you ring us up.”
“One more thing,” he added after a pause.
“We will allow any track on an iPhone to be used as a ring tone or SMS message alert.”
Ok, ok, I made this all up. That last one is utterly ridiculous.
