Apple isn't perfect.
It's about time this has been widely and publicly acknowledged. One of the things that had disturbed me for the past couple of years was the expectation of naysayers that Apple would eventually flub it in a major way. In fact, one could perceive a growing resentment of Apple's string of hit products and the company's overwhelming success.
There's a silver lining to the iPhone 4 issue and thanks to the company's highly public response, the misperception of Apple being a company that sees itself as perfect or a company that has somehow become unjustifiably arrogant can be put to rest.
The iPhone 4 issue may become a high-profile non-issue. For those of us who expect the share price to reach or exceed $400 within twelve months a challenge of this kind couldn't have come at a better time.
