Apple Screws Up Again!

Yesterday, Apple released iTunes 7.7, which introduced the long-awaited iPhone Apps. But they decided to wait until today to release version 2.0 of their iPhone software (which is required for the apps). Makes perfect sense, no?

NO!

Today is also the day that Apple released the 3G iPhone. Did no one think that releasing the update on the same day as the new phone might be a bad idea? Apparently not.

Instead, people all across the web are proceeding with the update, only to get to a point where they get a lovely message that says, “Sorry, something is majorly fux0red, and we can’t connect to the Apple Store. Your phone is now a useless $400 paperweight, and you’re basically screwed!” (I’m paraphrasing..)

Ridiculous. It took me over 2 hours to finally get onto the Update Server, and finish the upgrade to v2.0. Until then, my phone was in Emergency Mode, and absolutely useless. Fun.

If you haven’t updated yet, do yourself a favor, and wait a few days.. While the new apps and features are cool, they’re definitely not worth the upgrade headache!
