Most people heard what Rabbi Sacks said. Few heard the recant. The real question is why on earth would someone make a statement that oes viral and then recant.

Rabbi sacks retracted his statment

Rabbi Sacks clearly retracted his statement and explained it. Why would you write and post an article about a retracted statement?

PS Rabbi Sacks said the same thing about himself using an iphone every day.

I think you missed the point. Shochet doesn’t disagree with Sacks just his attack on Jobs. It seems Sacks has since recanted on his view. http://www.thejc.com/news/uk-news/58670/chief-rabbi-i-did-not-attack-steve-jobs-or-apple

Definitly has its advantages… but for the people who don’t have a choice, but everyone knows to learn chitas and daven from your phone is NOT the same as using a sefer, did you ever get a phone call or text while using your phone for Shmoineh Esrei?!

use it for good

Shows that some enjoy to be argumentive

Two Jews, three opinions. Some like to argue even when there is nothing to argue about. The Rebbe said over a “story” that after 120, each Rosh Yeshiva gets to say a chiddush before Kaviyochal. One R”Y was not a great mechadesh, but he was great at shlogging op. After 120 when invited to say a chiddush he responded, Let the Kaviyochel say a chiddush and I will shlog it op. The Cheif Rabbi said a nice “chiddush” – no need to shlog it op!

Two sides to a coin

An iPod/Pad isn’t exactly the best thing either, if you get my drift.

Shows the Difference of a Chassid

This is the difference between on who learned from the Rebbe how everything created can be used to serve Hashem. A Lubavitcher finds it natural to look at things the way that Rabbi Shochet just did in this article

I learn daf yomi every day with my iphone. I also have my siddur, chitas and other sforim. Can’t leave home without it.
