A few outlets have noted that it’s particularly sketch due to the situation Princess Diana faced with paparazzi. We’re with that camp.

whobutwbstilwell says: I might be wrong here, but didn't Bill Gates also receive this honour a few years ago? Just thinking about your comment about Windows users here haha.

» SFB says: Yes, you’re right. — Gates received a KBE honor in 2005, but here’s where Ive and Gates differ. See, Ive will be called “Sir” because he’s British. Gates is American, so his title didn’t change. The joke was faux-arrogance to be honest. Heh. — Ernie @ SFB

Hey Tina Brown, we get it. You’re a big fan of Princess Diana. But seriously? Why would you do this to the woman? We have a white iPhone too, but we don’t imagine Princess Diana holding onto it. It’s just weird.
