According to a Mac rumors blog, a German user emailed Jobs asking if Apple was planning on "supporting/updating the iPhone 2G in the Future" and that was Jobs' answer.Apparently Steve Jobs has gone and answered another customer email, this time sending shockwaves through the tech world with two words - "Sorry, no."
We know it's only been a couple of years since the iPhone was originally released, but is this all that surprising?
Should we really expect Apple to continue releasing updates for outdated hardware? As it is, the iPhone OS 4.0 isn't going to support the iPhone 3G for half of its functionality - what are we looking for with iPhone 2G support then? After all, with Apple's infamously closed platform, are we looking for much in the way of bug fixes and security holes?
Now, if only Microsoft would do the same for Internet Explorer 6, we could all move on with our lives.
