Boring proof

Excel 2007 has a calculation bug, no one really knows the potential impact, and no one cares. Mainstream media stay away in droves. Spreadsheets are utterly critical to a great many financial institutions and transactions but nope, no one cares.

Apple update some bugs in their phone (which btw is not underpinning the whole financial world) and it’s instant front page news.

Maybe its the fact that the iphone fix breaks the unlocking hack people have used to get more competitive air-time contracts? Maybe the journos thoroughly analysed the Excel 2007 calc bug error and established it was not critical?

Or more likely spreadsheets are just (even) more boring than mobile phones.

I think the name for the updated patched iphones is an iBrick or iDoorStop.

Was anyone here using one?(past tense!)

cheers
