press is all in a tizzy this week after it was
revealed that someone did not use an iPhone.
Macinsider reported the SHOCK news that Palm chief
executive and former iPod chief Jon Rubinstein had never used an iPhone. The magazine also delivered the amazing statement that
his company does not pay much attention to Apple.
The AMAZING announcement came when Rubinstein sat down
Kara Swisher to talk about his company's new lineup of webOS-based handsets due
out this year.
Naturally the interview swung to a conversation about
Apple and Rubinstein surprised the interviewer by failing to indicate his total
dependence on Jobs' Mob for ideas.
Rubinstein said that although it sounds "really
strange," his company doesn't pay much attention to Apple, and he doesn't
worry about the iPhone. To that, Swisher responded: "I don't believe
you." Rubinstein then claimed he has never touched an iPhone "I don't
have an iPhone," he said. "I've never even used one."
This might seem a little strange as Rubinstein once
actually worked for Apple. However there must be someone in the industry who
has never used an iPhone, other than me and we are surprised that the Mac using
IT press is so surprised.
