Recently a minor number of Apple Video iPods were shipped with a virus, namely RavMonE.exe. What do Apple do? Well, blame Microsoft, of course.
Taken from the Apple web support site:
As you might imagine, we are upset at Windows for not being more hardy against such viruses
Seriously, are you fucking kidding me?! Apple, here’s how it is:
- You shipped the product
- You were responsible for testing it
Just because some of your employees has used a Windows machine (oh, the irony) and didn’t how to protect it from viruses, and consequently gave this virus to some small poor iPods, you can never ever blame Microsoft. Microsoft aren’t responsible (as far as I know) for starvation in the world nor for when you do a piss-poor job.
This is exactly the reason why Apple have such a hard time being accepted by large companies all over the world: total lack of professionalism.
If a kid is playing in the sand together with another kid, and he then suddenly hits the other kid with the shovel in the face, it sure isn’t the the poor flat-nose-and-sand-all-over-the-face kid’s fault for just sitting there. Grow up, Apple.
