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?

Sorry. But calling people, that expected a very improved device(concerning the antenna and reception), whiners is just incorrect.
These people got on the hook and got burnt like the techie early adopters are every time. Apple charges some restocking fee for the refund, so legal proceedings are quite reasonable. And in US going to court is considered normal. In EU Apple can't charge you for a refund, especially if the device is defective.
