It looks like iPhone 4 might be their Vista, and I’m OK with that. That’s another mantle they’re welcome to take. I actually read that headline last week, and I just sort of had to smile after I did cartwheels again.
It’s simply an outrageous assertion for Microsoft’s CFO to make. Windows Vista was a poorly conceived operating system that demanded too much power and delivered jerky performance—and it was a market failure. There is simply nothing about iPhone 4 for that’s like Vista. The statement is pure FUD.
