Apple So, the iPhone 4 has been out for a while, and is getting mostly pretty good reviews - there's one major sore spot, though. Apple made this hoopla about their fancy antenna thingie, but as it turns out, this thingie is kind of a design flaw, causing signal loss (and dropped calls) for some people. Despite downplaying by Steve Jobs himself, AnandTech has done a thorough investigation, and they've found out that the problem - which affects every mobile phone - is a whole lot worse on the iPhone 4 due to the new antenna. At the same time, however, the iPhone has much better reception in low signal situations. What?

I fail to get the joke, if the intent was to make people not freak out when coffee is poured on the device and the current design was specially crafted to make people not freak out when coffee is poured on the device, then the design if flawed if people freak out when they see coffee on the device.

Going on stage when announcing the launch of the device and claim people do not freak out when coffee is poured on it then start saying it is a non issue or freaking out customers are mentally unbalanced when customers start reporting freaking out when they see coffee pouring on the device will lead to bad PR and lawsuits
