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.

No, it is not perception. Calls drop, that's reality. Calls drop more on the iPhone 4 when this happens in medium to low signal areas (most areas in the US with AT&T). So no, I'm not talking about the dropped bar indicator, I'm talking about the dropped calls. Unlike the indicator, dropped calls are a definite thing. Call drops, no talk. Simple enough?


If it was an Android-based phone made my HTC with its guts stuffed into an Apple case you'd still be screaming, just because you had the perception that it was an Apple product and you don't like anything made by Apple.

Even after the deception was revealed, you'd not be angry at HTC, you'd still be blaming Apple.

Wow. So, in other words, your brand loyalty to Apple is so blind that you can't imagine even the possibility that there might be valid reasons to criticize an Apple product. Whenever someone criticizes Apple, you can just make the knee-jerk assumption that they're "anti-Apple"; how convenient that must be!
