When did people ever care more about functionality than design; is your iPhone 4 completely useless because of it? No. The consumer public has been aware of this issue the last few weeks but are still flocking to Apple stores in droves to purchase the new iPhone 4. Some of us (females) wear the most ridiculous and uncomfortable shoes sometimes just to look good so that's the same idea right? We have seen people complaining left and right about the loss of reception under the "Death Grip" but I can't say that I've actually experienced it myself nor have I encountered an individual that is holding out for this very reason. My fiance hasn't complained much about reception issues greater than her negative AT&T coverage on the previous iPhone 3G, but then again, we both have Apple's Bumpers as our solution to protection. We're enjoying FaceTime moments and it couldn't have been done without Apple's new iPhone 4. It also became law this past year that you need a handsfree device to talk in the car, and in other states, you cannot text while driving which might cover browsing the internet and reading up on your tweets. So what's the big deal? Put the phone down already while talking. This post is a response to this morning's Bloomberg's article which unleashed a storm startling us out of bed with the inside scoop that one of Apple's senior antenna experts, Ruben Caballero, warned Steve Jobs about how the innovative antenna design might lead to dropped calls. We all know what the final outcome led to; one of the most beautiful devices on the planet hands-down. Now it's under fire. Apple's image is under fire being compared to Toyota's recall debacle. Apple's stock has taken a 9% dive since it's record breaking all time high of $274 and the world doesn't know what to do. So Apple is finally dealing with this issue. Stay tuned for tomorrow's event at 10am Pacific Time. Will Steve Jobs be around?
In the meantime, how do you hold your phone? Here's how I hold mine
Update: Apple's online store is showing shipping times of 3 weeks from today. Does this mean a hardware change is in place in their China factories?
