Apple In a move that should surprise nobody, Apple has sort-of admitted to iPhone antenna problems in their press conference this morning, claiming it affects a small number of users, but they claim to be working hard to fix the problems that they have confirmed. They've offered free bumpers (that have until now been a $30 accessory) to all iPhone buyers, and are offering to waive any restocking fees for anyone who wants to return their iPhone 4. Whether or not there's going to be a hardware fix for future iPhones, Steve Jobs says he doesn't know yet whether that will happen.

Why the hell does anyone believe anything Steve says anymore? First he said "There is no problem". Well now we know thats not true because an Apple engineer told him ahead of time there was a problem. Then he said "Its just a software glitch in the bars calculation." Well thats not the entire problem either, if there even is a mis calculation. The problem is you have two antennae for two different bands. The antennae are exposed and can be short circuited by touching them both. But there is no problem, right? Unless you happen to have sweaty hands....
