2009's Geek of the Year says he's never used the iPhone
Swisher: "I don’t believe you" Rubinstein: "I don’t have an iPhone. I’ve never even used one." Considering the fact that Rubinstein was the person most responsible for developing Apple's iPod, that is a statement that many would find very hard to believe. As for Palm not really paying attention to Apple, it would be very unusual for a company not to keep close tabs on what its main competitor is doing. Could you imagine Pepsi not wanting to know what Coke is up to? Rubinstein could be saying that nothing of interest to him has been produced by the gang at Cupertino since his departure. Most likely he is just trying to get Apple's (and Steve Jobs in particular) goat.
