Apple denies 'four years' iPod report, clarifies 'for years'
According to iLounge, Apple has clarified a quote in a Chicago Tribune article where the newspaper quoted Apple spokeswoman Natalie Kerris as saying that iPods are designed to last for "four years." What Kerris actually said, notes the story, is that iPods have a low failure rate and are designed to last "for years."
This is a misquote from a professional journalist here. It incited dozens of forums and got "the iPod haters" riled.
Although it won't happen, I'd like to see a retraction and apology to Apple.
