Ignorance Speaks: Steve Jobs displays his ignorance

I ran across a news item from 2010, and the ignorance, arrogance and ineptitude of Steve Jobs are clearly on display.  Small wonder he built a cult of personality around himself, he believed he was infallible.
Apple accused of 'discrimination' over iPhone 4

Apple has been accused of ''discrimination'' over the design of their iPhone 4 – amid claims that left handers find it more difficult to use.

[T] there have been complaints an antenna in the lower left corner can become masked when held by a left-handed owner, causing a drop in signal strength.

The glitch emerged in the form of videos of users demonstrating the fault on technology blogs within hours of the new iPhone going on sale in the US.

Apple boss Steve Jobs defended the gadget and declared: "Just avoid holding it in that way."

Translated: "I don't care if you are left handed, use it right handed.  Poor design by Apple's engineers are your problem, not mine."

I was never an Apple fanatic fanboy, so I never paid any attention to stories about it.  But if I ever needed an excuse not to use their overpriced and underpowered products, this is one.
