The Weekly Thread | April 24th-April 30th

It’s the first of the month and time for the Weekly Thread! This week was a mix of good and bad for Apple & Verizon. They released 3 news phones. However, the plan was to release 4. And then there was the whole LTE network being down. Also Apple once again trying to play like they didn’t know something they clearly knew about was happening. I have to say to Apple “its always better to be truthful, lying getting you nothing but trouble in the long run.” I would like to think consumers can handle the truth and when you say one thing despite the fact the terms you make you users agree to say something totally different you aren’t don’t yourself any favors by lying. but on good Apple news the White iPhone 4 is finally here!!!! And like always I will sum up this and more of the weeks stories in 140 characters or less.
