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.

I must be about the only person here who doesn't have one of these smart phones; I have a basic Telecom R6 and it does all that I need, and better still I can hold which ever way I want in any location around Wellington without the signal dropping out - and tether it to my laptop without having to pay a 'special fee' to the carrier:

$149 for the lot and a great phone at that; and for my music player I have an iPod Classic (160GB). Am I going mad being the only person on this forum who seems to have no interest in smart phones? what am I missing out on that everyone seems to be enjoying. It as though there is secret that everyone else is in on except me?
