Steve Jobs Is Here To Remind You About The Important Things In Life

little boxes“Retire, relax, enjoy your family. It is just a phone. Not worth it.”
Steve Jobs (or someone claiming to be him?) tries to soothe an iPhone 4 user who is, shall we say, agitated about the device’s issue with dropping calls when it isn’t held in the proper way. Is Jobs’ response indicative of a new “be chill, bro” marketing technique coming from Apple, or is this simply the response of someone who doesn’t have to pay AT&T for lousy service and is thus more Zen about the whole idea of a somewhat expensive device actually working? Either way, it’s kind of amazing how low our expectations are for the reliability of phone service these days, isn’t it?
