    Do you think Steve Jobs is turning over in his grave given the quality control issues that Apple is having? I read somewhere that Steve had a five-year plan for the iPhone, you think this was it? People will probably buy the phone, and the next phone, and the next after that too. How has your opinion changed?

    We don't know the full story to be jumping to conclusions, yet. There appears to be more defective units this year than in past releases, but the amount of phones being manufactured has increased at a steady rate as well. I'll wait for some statistics before coming to a final answer.

    I've seen some terrible Apple products come out under Steve Jobs's control. It's just that none of them were iOS-related, so few people cared. This is not that bad, and the Maps issue will be temporary. The iMacs produced between 2004 and 2006 were very unreliable, the original Apple TV a failure, and Ping a flaming explosive diarrhea.

    On the other hand, I sold my AAPL stock for now (will maybe buy later) because of the extremely high expectations people hold for Apple's iOS. Everything on iOS must be perfect.

    What did SJ do about Antennagate, MobileMe, etc.?

    People here have exceedingly short memories.

    Antennagate - admitted a problem, free bumper

    MobileMe - swore at designers and fired a bunch of them

    We remember.

    Who is Stan Jenkins and why should I care about what he would do?

    Steve Jobs is dead. Whatever someone says he would do is saying what they would want done, not him.

    The maps and the quality control issues still aren't as bad as Ping ;)

    If think he would turn on the door step of everyone who starts a thread like this with a nice basket of carrots and carrot products. Then politely ask them not to do it again.

    No. 5 million iPhones sold, a few hundred or even thousands complaining here is not indicative of a major issue.

    Well never know what Steve would say/do


    Thread over// question answered

    This is just like the iPad "screen tint" people on here complained about.

    Who cares. There will be another visionary. There always is, you just have to give it time. Ford, Lincoln, King, Tesla, Edison, Jobs, Wozniak, Wrights, Branson, Musk, Zuckerberg, etc...there'll always be another one.

    Seriously, why are people still hung up on "What would Steve do?". He's dead. Cry, then move on to what the people running Apple ARE doing.

    its quite funny some of the answers here.
    it was just a simple hypothetical.

    no wonder people think apple fanboys are pretentious d-bags.
    its apparently true with some of you. :)

    especially the responce above me.
    he must have a chip in his iBlock.

    Why can't we leave this alone. The man is gone. It doesn't matter what he would or wouldn't have done. He was a great innovator but certainly not perfect, he had his fair share of busts as well.

    What would JC do???

    At the end of the day your the customer , we are where we are with the 5 and iOS 6, map included . Under SJ apple has its ***** software like Ping, so who knows.

    I'd like to think SJ would not let apple maps out in this state , but hey, it works okay in the US so maybe he would. Tim has people advising him, the question is, the person who recommended that maps was ready.... Will they have a job next week. SJ would have gone MobileMe on th them ;)

    ----------

    SJ would not require 17 words to respond to scuffgate! What was Phil thinking ;)

    Steve would look you in the eye and tell you you're holding it wrong. He'd also tell you that you don't know what you want...and that Apple would tell you what you want.

    This isn't about Steve though. It's about a corporate culture that's run amok and that is losing touch with the very customers that have made it such a success.
