Joke of the Year

Its only early 2007. But this quote will remain as one of the Jokes of the Year.

“You don’t want your phone to be an open platform. You need it to work when you need it to work. Cingular doesn’t want to see their West Coast network go down because some application messed up.”

Steve Jobs, CEO, Apple Inc. on why the iPhone will not support third party applications.


One thought on “Joke of the Year

  1. Basically iPhone comes with the same Apple tradition (or arrogance) of “I’m the everybody”.

    And that is not the only joke. There were more. The one I liked:

    “Java’s not worth building in. Nobody uses Java anymore. It’s this big heavyweight ball and chain.”
    – Steve Jobs in an interview with NY Times on why they don’t support Java.
