Apple lets down its adoring public

Never did I think I would have to call Apple out for failing its public, but I know you've been reading my esteemed colleague, David Zeiler and his Apple A Day blog, which has been chronicling the mishaps surrounding the iPhone 3G launch.

We told you on launch day that PC Magazine was reporting glitches in activating accounts for iPhone owners and then David wrote about the iPhone/MobileMe disaster, and the fact that MobileMe users couldn't access e-mail for days.

What a mess, right? 

Now Wired Magazine says that despite the launch fiasco that included "e-mail outages, inadvertent credit-card charges and web-app bugs, Apple isn't embarrassed enough about MobileMe to resist advertising it to iPhone users."

C'mon Apple. People aren't paying you chump change for your products. Many of us are fans (full disclosure: I am not buying an iPhone, but I do own a 2 GB iPod and I'm writing this on a MacBook). Don't take advantage of your devotees by treating us like tools. We expect better from you.
