Arends explains

It seems he wasn't wrong; I am.

"Regarding my iPhone piece, I must point out that over the past five years it has been vindicated. The article was prescient.

"It was written in June 2007, when the initial iPhone was released. People were lining up around the block to pay $500+ for the new products. I criticized it for what I considered five big flaws. And I went five for five: Apple later addressed all of them, along the lines I had suggested."

But there's the little matter of his unambiguous conclusion -- namely that the iPhone "isn't the future" and "won't be ushering in a new era."
