    I guess everyone forgot when apple reps shot down the idea of a cheaply made iPhone long before the press release?

    Quite the opposite, if you bother reading the article. Apple played the role of the innovator that makes the top quality product (nobody disputes that), but fails to realize that the guys in the bottom (lower quality, lower prices, lower margins) eventually catch up and squeeze the top player out of business. It has happened with Apple before on the personal computer, where it was almost obliterated by PC's, coming back only by becoming a PC maker and lowering its margins.
