Steve Jobs on Wi-Fi Syncing, Macs, and iPhone 4 Scratches

Steve Jobs has been engaging his customers quite a bit lately, and we’ve got some rather interesting answers pertaining to the three most important topics people are concerned about.

“Do you think you will ever allow syncing iPhone to Mac over wifi?” writes Rick Proctor, friend of Mashable and previous TUAW writer Christina Warren. Steve wrote back, “Yep, someday.”

A handicapped Mac user, Steve O’Hear from TechCrunch Europe, wrote in to ask Steve about the future of Mac. It was a personal and concerning email, with this end note, “It’s not that I can’t use the existing iPhone or iPad, just not as efficiently as everybody else, so I haven’t invested in either.” Steve replied, “We will keep making the best computers on the planet. We love it.”

Now about those iPhone 4 scratches. A lot of pictures have shown up all around the Internet and various tech blogs that show the gorilla glass getting some serious new tiger stripes. And we’ve come to expect nearly every Apple mobile device to incredibly scuff-able.

“I’ll get my new iPhone 4 32gb tomorrow, but i heard a bad info about the back protective glass. isn’t it manufactered by Gorilla Glass as the front one? I saw too many scratchs after 5 days of use.” Pasquale Dileo writes. Steve, not addressing the scratch issue, informs us that, “The back glass is the same as the front.”

So while we have answers, the issue with the iPhone 4 was not exactly addressed. And I’d be curious to hear if Steve would vaguely answer questions about the iPhone’s new antennae issue.
