I think your the one whose not too bright. Enough people complain, means apple loses buisness because many of them may not buy their next iphone. If they lose money then they may just have a reason to give a damn.

We all know apple the corporation really doesnt give a damn though.

Your logic is flawed as well. If I go to a resturant because I cant cook and order the soup. The soup comes out tasting like dog crap. Do I not have a right to complain because I do not know what type of seasoning the chef should use?!
