I-yi-yi, indeed

From the Duke University website, on Friday July 20 (emphasis added):

By now many of you have read news accounts around iPhones and Duke’s wireless network … Cisco worked closely with Duke and Apple to identify the source of this problem, which was caused by a Cisco-based network issue.

Three days later, on Monday July 23, the Greensboro News and Record prints this (emphasis added, again):

Apple’s ubiquitous new iPhone can do everything but take out the trash and do the laundry, if you’re to believe the hype.

But there appears to be an unexpected side effect at Duke University, where the new devices may be interfering with the school’s wireless network.

Experts say the iPhone and Duke’s wi-fi may need to adjust how they speak to one another. A failure, ironically, to communicate.

I know they’re short-staffed over there, but really – it’s been known for three days that the problem was with the university’s network, yet they’re still implying that the iPhone was at fault. It’s extra embarrassing considering that Duke is right down the road.
