Heated Steve Jobs Email Exchange is Real [BGR]

Heated Steve Jobs Email Exchange is Real [BGR]

The BoyGeniusReport has declared that their exclusive account of an email exchange between Steve Jobs and an irate iPhone 4 customer is real.

Unfortunately, BGR made a mistake in publishing the story. The last line of the exchange was written to be said by Steve Jobs, when in fact it was Jason who emailed that in reply to Steve Jobs.

Otherwise, they are confident in the story.

Let’s go over it one more time… someone who wanted to remain 100% anonymous and only asked to be paid a nominal fee of a couple hundred dollars lied and completely made up this entire thing? Someone who showed me in his AT&T call records more than two calls from Apple representatives (Texas phone numbers, confirmed to be Apple Customer Relations) on the exact dates he said they called trying to resolve the situation after he had emailed Steve Jobs? Someone who repeatedly emailed me and the BGR staff to correct the last line in my story since it wasn’t accurate? Someone who has now had his name revealed to the public via a tasteless article from AppleInsider, and is now being called by reporters non-stop asking about this article and whether his exchange is true or not? They still wouldn’t admit this was fake? No, you know why? Because it wasn’t fake.

When CNN asked on the record whether Steve Jobs was the author of any of these statements, a top Apple spokesman emphatically denied it. BGR notes this very well could be true.

I personally couldn’t give a damn if this email was with Steve Jobs himself or not. What I care about is whether this was with Steve Jobs’ email box, one that is obviously monitored by a bunch of employees at Apple, either in customer service or PR, or both. So, is it possible that Steve Jobs himself did not write those emails to Jason Burford? Without a doubt. Is it possible that these replies were fabricated, and didn’t come from someone at Apple sending emails to Jason Burford from Steve Jobs’ email address sjobs@apple.com? No. I believe 100% these emails are real

I just read the article ate BGR's site, what total crap, seriously. Spam filter......what? You get all this guys emails except the one that points out an error.....I call BS.. Calling yourselves journalists.........seriously...........uhm.......no your not. Your sensationalists, paying for a story line, no better than National Enquirer, actually worse than NE, they don't try and hide who they are. The iPhone is what it is, like it or not, buy it or don't. But these jerkwads riding coat tails for free press is the real failure here. Think of it like this, before today, I never heard of BGR or the hoaxers advertising firm, now sadly I know the names of both...think on that!

Honestly sounds like bullshit to me. We are in a time of financial angst the guy who "spilled the beans" got paid he isn't going to admit to lying, honestly Steve Jobs doesn't come off as the Mel Gibson type. I'm sure he has a temper beut he's not fool enough to expose himself like this. If ppl don lik iPhones don't buy them, get a refund. Geez

So the article title is a firm statement based on one person's belief... That is pure garbage and this should be retitled.

Just because someone "believes" it to be real doesn't make it true. Without evidence they came from Jobs just makes it a big scam. BGR is pissed because he was scammed and is holding the line so he doesn't look like a douche. I "believe" BGR is a douche. So it must be true then!?

OMG, Who the hell cares about this B.S. You don't like the damn phone, return it and shut the fuck up already. I swear Apple has to be the company everyone loves to hate. One little problem about anything gets blown the fuck out of proportion. Real or not, get on with your damn life and shut the hell up. It's just a damn phone. Remember when phones didn't have shit in them? Remember when having a camera in a phone was like.....OMG NO WAY, shit wasn't even a mega-pixel cam, it was VGA. People are such douche bags. You don't like something, return it and get something else. You don't want to get something else. wait for a fix and shut the hell up about it.
