    There are no "gate"s. There are issues and problems, but no gates.

    I voted Error 53 because it was the most ridiculous in terms of stupidity from the customer.

    "Oh I dont want to pay Apple to fix my Apple device, I'm going to void warranty (which stated I could lose access) with a third party and then complain about a security feature designed to protect me."

    None of them are really big deals in the scheme of things. We would all love tech to be perfect, but it will never be.

    Well lets see ATT in Los Angeles on the first iPhone was apple-solutely worthless for web searches - beyond slow as a dog. Glad I am not there now or with that wretched iphone.

    Maybe it wasn't really a "gate" but my favorite was the Twentieth Anniversary Macintosh (a.k.a. "TAM"), released at $7,500 in March 1997. In today's dollars, that would be $11,175.

    After Jobs returned, he killed off the product (which he hated) and to clear inventory the price was reduced to $1,995 when it was discontinued in March 1998. Early customers who paid full price and complained about the massive price reduction got a free PowerBook as compensation.

    Antennagate.

    Telling people to hold different, then offering a bumper as a solution. LOLLLLLL. Straight out of an SNL sketch.

    This^. Most struggle to grasp this concept. At least in terms with Apple.

    It almost took me a moment, but I believe that right there is essentially the only right answer.

    It's hard to get excited about any of these trivial little issues when their only serious competitor sells phones that try to blow up your house. But ok, I'll take bendgate as my favourite. Let's all cram a 46 inch plasma in the pocket of our skinny jeans and then do some sit-ups.

    Antennagate.

    When Apple truely demonstrated their belief that they were infallible ... and the public proved them otherwise.
