    Apple is infuriatingly silent on all things iPhone 4 now.
    Mel Gibson has his own troubles.

    Anyone want to wager on who will make a statement first?
    (Apple's previous statement doesn't count)

    In all seriousness, that's a tough question. I'd think Apple would speak first though. I think Mel wants to put his ex through the ringer first.

    Mel Gibson once he wakes up from binge drinking and realized what had happened...

    I love it! I'm going to go with apple. Mel is a celeb and just did something dumb. So his publicist will probably recommend rehab like every other celeb that screws up. LOL! That will take at least a couple of months. So again I say apple.

    Ha! It may be a tie. They're both too proud. Steve will problem make a joke in passing at next years iPhone keynote and Mel will probably wait at least a year before doing some kind of Larry King like interview...lol.:p

    I voted Apple 'cuz Gibson seems pretty out of touch and Apple has money riding on better customer relations whereas Gibson pretty much burned not only his bridges but the land at both ends of his bridges!

    If you combine Apple with Mel Gibson, you get cider

    Actually, it's currently Apple being out of (iPod) Touch.

    So on that basis I am confident that however long will Apple Inc will continue to deny, it will beat the sober-up time of Mel Gibson.

    Well it looks like Apple has blinked. Unless Mel Gibson issues a statement tomorrow (and he may very well), it seems Apple's Friday announcement wins.

    I never thought it would happen.

    Never underestimate an alcoholic Hollywood actor's tricks and the arrogance of a large tech company!

    Heard through the grapevine (numerous unreliable tech blogs, random strangers, friends, and my cat) that Mel Gibson is actually going to be Apple's PR rep at the "we ****ed up" speech on Friday. Imagine that!

    What a great thread... So hilarious!

    Who would have thought that Apple would dig it's own grave?

    Oh sure they will survive just like Mel will. The question is... at what price?

    Looks like those of us who said Mel Gibson will end up being WRONG! :eek:

    Unless Mel Gibson comes out before tomorrow, we all lose (yet, in some ways, we win) :rolleyes:

    I voted Mel.

    He will say how sorry he is...for donating part of his liver to Steve, as his drinking has now made him ultra stupid.

    Only one problem with that scenario: His agency's already dropped him like a bad habit.

    Mel is such a great guy. I mean, the last time he had a rant like this, he said he was so sorry and didn't mean what he said. C'mon guys, let's give the poor guy the benefit of the doubt.

























    ...not. What an idiot.

    I heard Mel Gibson bought an iPhone 4, and when it dropped a call due to poor signal strength, he got so mad he threw it at his ex-girlfriend while she was holding her baby.

    Actually, Mel was down at the orphanage handing out kittens he rescued when he tried to make a call on his new iPhone 4. He wasn't aware of the issue and held it the wrong way. This caused a harmful electrical field signal thing to course through his body and altered his brain waves which caused him to go into a rant.

    He is suing Apple.
