A recent article from Brian Chen about why the Japanese hate the iPhone has been making the rounds on the web over the past few days. The only problem, though, is that the article is largely based on either taken out of context or outdated quotes about the iPhone from Japanese tech journalist Nobi Hayashi. Hayashi even sent out a tweet yesterday saying, “I like Wired but i dont like brian chen making false claim using my name.”
Wired’s tech reporting is usually either hit or miss, and Chen’s recent article is an egregious example of the latter. AppleInsider thoughtfully explains why over here.
