I may never get journalists

November 1, 2011

Sam Jones after [quoting nearly every word](http://www.guardian.co.uk/technology/2011/oct/31/steve-jobs-last-words?newsfeed=true) of [Mona Simpson’s touching eulogy](http://www.nytimes.com/2011/10/30/opinion/mona-simpsons-eulogy-for-steve-jobs.html?_r=1&pagewanted=all) for her brother Steve Jobs:

>”His biography, written by Walter Isaacson, is topping many book charts and is even tipped to become the bestselling book on Amazon this year.

>The company’s latest offering, the iPhone 4S, is faring less well, however, with many users complaining of rapid battery drain on their new smartphones.”

The most successful product launch in Apple’s history and it isn’t fairly well because of a simple software bug that is draining the battery a bit and will, no doubt, be fixed with the next release of iOS 5?

I don’t think it is possible for journalists to go an entire article without saying something negative. Or, maybe it is because Jones or the editors wanted to link to their own “smartphones” page to earn my ad revenue.

Dolts, all of them.
