Apple Deletes Thread About Consumer Reports Not Recommending An iPhone [Updated]
from the we-were-always-at-war-with-eurasia dept
Apple, of course, became a household name with its infamous 1984 commercial, about how Apple equipment would make sure that “1984” wasn’t like 1984. However, now that it’s 2010, apparently it’s fine. As you may have heard, Consumer Reports yesterday posted that it could not recommend the iPhone 4 due to the widely discussed antenna problems. Apparently that was double-plus-ungood to the folks at Apple.
Ragaboo alerts us to the news that Apple has deleted a thread discussing this at the Apple support forums. And when they delete it, they mean it. People created a new thread, and it got deleted again. And again. And again and again. At least six such threads have been deleted, according to that TUAW article. Of course, all this is doing is drawing more attention to the issue and the fact that Apple is trying to deny it exists. Oh, and we were always at war with Eurasia.
Update: Apparently some of the threads have now come back… and people are suggesting that it may have been a glitch with Apple’s forums, rather than anything malicious… We haven’t yet seen a full explanation, but perhaps that’s the case.
