if enough people say you look tired…

you go take a nap. If there’s enough evidence from all over that the iBooks have a design flaw that causes their premature failure, will Apple do something about it? Nothing official yet, but more support from credible sources.

Ars Technica weighs in on the iBook issue in their Apple 2003 wrap-up.

It’s a balanced overview of the problem and the reaction around the Internet which can be summed up in one line:

Apple has a serious problem with the iBooks, and needs to deal with it.

MacFixIt also has an additional extensive report on the subject.

Can Apple continue to deny or pretend that this issue doesn’t exist? Stay tuned.

Update: The Register has their say too. Yes, it’s a rumor rag but interesting that they hint that something’s going to happen at MacWorld San Francisco next week:

Faithful Apple users plan to put Quality Control issues center stage at the MacWorld show in San Francisco next week, to highlight a problem that Apple refuses to acknowledge.
