    Like a Leica, except made in.............by.............for the wage of......................and shipped over here, creating ...................fuel demand and air pollution. A Leica? Really? You're such an asshole, Steve. I don't want your stinking iPhone. I want my countrymen to have jobs making them.

    I actually think my 8 year old Nokia is more like a Leica than the iphone. It's never needed repair and keeps on working, my niece's iphone has been repaired twice and then it was replaced, all within 12 months.

    Will it be useful around in 50 years?

    Very typical Apple/Jobs spin. And an affront to Leica (no, I'm not a Leica owner), which does not churn out rubbish to a gullible public.

    Most in his audience only know Leica's reputation, not Leica. If they don't know Leica, they'll accept his pronouncement, and figure Leica is something special. It's an easy way to use a product of legendary reputation and quality to promote his product. Maybe he believes it.

    Leica's not making money hand over fist while some foreign company actually producing the stuff is having a "problem" with employee suicides.

    I'm willing to bet no Leica employee is dumb enough to have ever left a Leica prototype behind on a bar stool in a beer garden!

    I've always really liked Apple's products. But the whole carefully cultivated cultishness leaves me cold. I guess if you've got the fan base you might as well use it, but it puts me off.

    All he was saying is that Apple aspire to the highest standards of design & engineering. Which sounds like a good thing to me.

    cult ?

    people who want apple computers use apples,
    and have no problem not wanting a PC.
    people who want leicas use leicas
    and have no problem not wanting a slr ...

    i don't have an iphone but know plenty of people who
    do cause they are fun.

    if using something like to use is "cult-like"
    i guess everyone is in one sort of a cult or another ..
