Apple… Seriously? …..

 

When the BP Deep Horizon oil spill started earlier this year, BP replied by stating that they would do everything in their abilities to stop it. When Windows Vista showed to have many bugs and errors, Microsoft responded by sending out a lot of updates at the start to repair the issues. When the iPhone 4 showed to have antenna issues, Apple responded by saying, *PARAPHRASE ALERT* “Well, they did it too!”

Let me just start by saying that I would NEVER suggest that Apple take an example from Microsoft, simply because they’re two different companies, and their users want two different environments. However, in this case, Apple should definitely take an example from how Microsoft has dealt with sticky situations. When Windows ME showed to be awful, Microsoft released Windows XP, which is considered by many to be the best Windows distribution yet. When Windows Vista showed to be another stinker, they not only released many updates that made the operating system quite usable after two service packs, but they released Windows 7 which I actually consider to be the best Windows distribution yet.

Since the beginning of the Apple/Microsoft battle, Microsoft has yet to release bad press about Apple, and Apple has yet to release a Mac advertisement that shows Mac features rather than how it is better than a PC.

They should have maintained their professionalism and stated that they would do everything they could do to fix the problem and abstained from removing forum posts referring the issue.
