That is the difference between a company that thinks through selling and one that just randomly releases stuff expecting it to sell because they stamped their name on it.

Look at most products with a giant sheet of paper telling customer FOR THE LOVE OF ALL THAT IS HOLY, DON'T THINK ABOUT RETURNING THIS TO THE STORE YOU BOUGHT IT FROM - CALL OUR 800# (BUT NOT ON WEEKENDS). Instead of the millions printing the idiotic sheet, why not just make it easier?

Or Apple, isn't it nice that no matter what happens there is a store with a guy who will try and answer the question and not just say, call the 800#.

Big Difference. There seems to be a 33% failure rate on the Xbox.

Michael,

My iPhone apps crashed all the time and it drove me crazy so I went to see an Apple Genius and she told me to reset the phone and it works so far. But I will tell you, my confidence in iPhone has been shaken.

This auto-restore capability, did it restore _all_ the data and settings on the phone?

Apple has a copy of every single piece of data on the iPhone, including data which you probably thought was confined to your phone?

That seems rather spooky to me.

Fukumimi,

I'm assuming iTunes makes a local, backup copy of your iPhone data on your own computer, rather than on Apple's server.

Although I don't know that for a fact.

If that's the case, it's not as spooky as it would be at first glance.

Anyone know for sure?

Thanks.
