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 almost broke my own personal rule

of waiting at least 4 months before buying a new model of a device.

Free bumpers? From the company that has billions in the bank? I'm not sure what bothers me more, Apple the company or the cult that waits in line all day for a defective product and then later defends them in forums.

I would switch to Droid if had better games and offline movies. The WP7 phones at least will provide a better platform for game developers and will likely have a movie service tied to Xbox live. Droid is good for business but can't compete with the iphone when it comes to entertainment.
