Hmm, Steve staat strak van de coke? . Nu heeft-ie voor de vierde keer binnen een week z'n policies aangaande de G4 orders aangepast. Zoals het er op dit moment voor staat wordt de hele downgrade-operatie teruggedraaid voor openstaande (US) orders:
And now we have Jobs saying, yes, we can honour existing orders after all. Go figure... So, all orders submitted before 13 October "will be honoured at the originally quoted prices, including those placed with the company's resellers", Apple said.
What brought about the change? According to reports, not only further complaints from understandably indignant customers, but the threat of a number of class action lawsuits.
"We apologise to our customers for upsetting and disappointing them during this past week," said Jobs. "Our actions today will hopefully set things right."
Meanwhile, British buyers appear to have been left out in the cold. An employee of one London-based reseller told Web site MacFixIt: "As of close of day on Friday, it would seem the policy on old orders has only been changed in the US. We could get no information out of Apple regarding if the change would affect the UK. We certainly weren't phoned to say reinstate your old orders."
