Does Apple have trouble admitting it was wrong?

Apple’s product designs are often revolutionary.  But not infallible.  And they often seem to be in denial.  The recent iPhone 4 antenna performance thing is a good example.

Another is the Magic Mouse.  I’ve often thought Apple has done a great disservice to the general public by dumbing down computer interaction.  Apple early on decided that any more than one mouse button was too confusing for computer users.  Now the Magic Mouse lets people right click or simulate a middle-mouse scroll wheel using its multi-touch surface (which is very cool).  It looks to me like they are conceding that multiple mouse buttons actually are useful, while trying to deny it by appearance.  Usability issues aside, Apple remains tops in product design.
