Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg Hates His New iPhone

By - Source: Tom's Guide US | B 58 comments

He said he ditched his BlackBerry because his thumbs were hurting, but Mark Zuckerberg was not impressed with the iPhone.

It's almost hard to believe that Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg didn't have an iPhone before now but apparently he didn't. He also didn't know that AT&T coverage is far from perfect and the battery life in the iPhone (and a lot of other smartphones) leaves a lot to be desired.

Zuckerberg recently invested in an iPhone only to discover that, if you're a power user, the battery is going to fall pretty fast. Then he found out about AT&T and its penchant for dropped calls and got even madder. This calls for a snide status update!

Why Mr. Zuckerberg decided to invest in an iPhone 3GS right before the iPhone 4 came out is beyond us. However, some reports suggest he was using an iPhone 4, despite his later comment suggesting he was still stuck with the older model.

    Not a surprise he switched, and right before the new launch...the guy already proved himself to be an idiot several times.

    Somebody needs to tell the world that the iPhone sucks. This guy may be bad at managing facebook, but at least he's in a position where people will listen ... somewhat

    Sounds to me like he has more of a problem with AT&T than he does with his iPhone. Not surprised there.

    And why he didn't just wait until iPhone 4 is beyond me.

    Most hardcore Apple fans are. Many Apple fans actually believe the myth that it was Apple that started the PC industry because they're too lazy to do proper research.

    Ah women.. Buying and eating tons of unnecessary stuff (clothes, chocolate, gadgets) without really caring if it's really needed or not. Thank god one of the biggest CEO's in the world is at least a little bit rational and practical.

    And I'm not saying the iPhone isn't good, it's just not meant for everyone and not suited for all needs.. It's a great smartphone for sure but people are acting as if it's the world's 8th wonder for crying out loud.. Therefore I really can't tell why you're so surpirsed there Jane..

    The guy is a bazillionare and he still has to bang out emails on his blackberry (or other smartphone of choice?) That's what minions are for!!! Mark, you can afford it; go pay someone $100k a year to do your bidding. If you don't know of any worthy applicants hit me up on facebook!

    And seriously, he is just suffering from gadget fatigue. If he had an iPhone and switched to Blackberry (unless living next door to Steve Jobs means he is in the reality distortion field too) he would probably have made a snarky post to the effect of

    "Got a Blackberry this week. This weekend, got miffed that there were no good fart apps, had to buy a holster to prevent my jeans from getting a hole in them, and went nuts trying to figure out what that little key with all the dots on it does."

    just someone else realizing its a fisher price built, big colorful icons, only do one thing at a time, and do it poorly device.

    that doesn't do anything well..just makes itself LOOK useful and entertaining.

    I play with a friends iphone whenever he comes over trying to eventually see the attraction to one, I just cant. I truly can not see the draw to it. other than "it looks big and friendly" appeal it has on people to buy it.

    So, are Tom's gonna do more pieces like these? Gates doesn't like his mouse, he'll get himself a new one? Or, Sony CEO doesnðt like his sony television and fired some employees?

    Oh, forgot to post on-subject, haha. So.. if zuckerberg thinks people that trust him with private info are "dumb fucks", and the reverse is true.. (Can't stop a company from being shitty after all)
    Then that must mean since he "hates" the iphone.. That must mean it rocks ;P

    Quick! Everyone! Flock to your nearest Fruit store to be crappled! ;D
