Porges explains

Even before I heard back from him, I strongly suspected that I knew what Porges was going to say in his defense. I've said it myself. And I've had it said about me by writers claiming similar injustice. His reply:

"Hah! The editor slapped on that title without telling me. It never reflected my [point of view] -- which was that the second-gen iPhone would be less expensive and fill in the feature gaps."

Accept his account or not -- I do -- but what he did write was no vote of confidence for Apple or its new phone.
