Must Read: Apple's Mistake on Baby Shaker

Note: We're all Apple fans here but On Apple and Onxo aren't above sticking to Cupertino when they do wrong.

Another note: This really ruined an otherwise great day. Apple beat Wall Street earnings and revenue targets while cleaning up over 11 million iPods and more then 3.7 million iPhones. And the App Store inches ever closer to 1 billion downloads.
