This type of story, while founded in a bit of truth, seems to be a bit out of touch.
It is perfectly normal for people to vent when something happens to a project that they've been working hard on. In this case, the rewarding surprise of bringing something to market was tainted. If my own experience at work is any indication of human nature, far lesser gaffs can produce short lived outbursts. This is absolutely normal even amongst groups with healthy cultures exhibiting desirable interpersonal interaction patterns.
Besides this, it really isn't even news. Did anyone doubt that apple would come out with a higher capacity iPod at some future, undisclosed date?
Funny, the shear existence of this story, let alone people's vehement reactions to it, is more noteworthy than the story's contents.
