“Steve Jobs” Claims iPod Touch Calendar Will Be Fixed Soon

letterfromsteve.pngDavid Early, a MacRumors member, shot off an e-mail to Apple complaining about a number of limitations on the device, such as its lack of disk mode, incompatibility with older iPod games, and crippled Calendar application that doesn’t allow the creation or editing of new events. And he actually got a reply, signed by Steve Jobs (though possibly composed by an assistant of his) that ignores most of Dave’s questions but speaks directly to the Calendar issue, which he says will be fixed via software update soon. Click on the thumbnail to read the full note.

It’s pretty awesome. Anyone else ever get an actual e-mail back from Steve?

    Please point me to the part in this response where he claimed that it would be fixed “soon”.

    The email headers have already been posted in the MacRumors thread. The email is genuine. The author is the only thing in question.

    You know, the annoying thing is that you’ve read the comment and done nothing. Now, you may not want to publish it (Whatever, seems childish to me. Is it due to the fake email address? You don’t need my email.), but you could at least go back and correct your claim of things being fixed “soon”.
