John Paczkowski for AllThingsD, on the significance of Apple's new page:
So these "rare defensive" interviews? These "We Are The Champions" Web pages? They're not tells.
They're marketing. They're advertising. They're part and parcel of a brutal battle over a lucrative and important market. And they're not unusual. They're business.
This is my take on it as well. If Apple does it for the Mac, why not the iPhone?
