i think the reasons for Apple ’s failure with the iPhone4 are complex and unseparable from the
company ’s success among consumers. They prioritized looks (which made them popular) and
as a result had to compromise function. The
antenna design allows for a slimmer device,
however exposing it to the bare touch makes
reception a lot more vulnerable to interference
during normal use than for any other phone. Most of Apple ’s customers value their philosophy (form before function) and therefore will be
content with a cosmetic solution such as
changing the signal bar algorithm. Apple rely on
their fans ’ shallowness, and thus react as they did — which is disappointing to anyone capable of critical thinking.
The opposite to denial and cosmetic solutions — to take measures and fix the technical issue — would have to start with admitting that they
made a mistake. For a company that heavily relies
on a religious fan base, that would be a very hard
step which they chose not to take.
So, to answer briefly, they screwed up in all ways
possible, but they stayed true to themselves … and to their profits.
Anonymous, 14 Nov 2010if u r talking about that bs report posted clearly seems another marketting gimick by apple to... more why u in here? i dont understand??? u got no interest in buying the ip4 so why u here?
too much spare time on ur hands...
fact is u see the news and u cry... get over it...seriously, wanna tissue??
why would any company provide warranty on a phone with such apparrent flaws??? it would be suicide
ive owed the ip4 for over 4mths now and over the last 18mths or so ive owned about 10 highend smartphones from htc, lg, moto, nokia to se and this is the first phone which i have not had any issues with...none.
so u can say what u want, whatever makes u feel better, dont bother me. from my own experience with the phone and looking at most mobile review sites on the net, regard the ip4 as one of the best smartphones on the market.(so many review sites compare other phones to the ip4..why is that??) i actually now own the htc desire and the ip4 and in all honesty if i had, had had to deside on one id keep it would be the ip4
get over it.. move on, im sure u got better ways to waste ur time

If they recommended a phone that was unreliable, as reliable, they would kill themselves in the process. That's why their report would be more unbiased than the usual reports.

Posts like those indicate how apple buy media to hide their flaws
iOS is currently the best OS offering on the market. However, not everyone likes it. As an alternative though, it would be advisable to go maybe with WP7 or even Symbian, as Android has been found with severe security flaws.
359 flaws were discovered, with 88 being classified as high risk. This is very dangerous. Until these are patched, it may be advisable to go with alternative smartphones.

Anonymous, 14 Nov 2010Score here do not mean anything the real army are the people on the stock market,
first thing... moreDont you really

users who more than likely
dont have Apple shares really
give a rats arse about what the
company is worth??? but just you will go on and on and on
about it like a godamn stuck
Apple could never do what the N8 does. The N8 offers free hotspot through Joiku, a better camera, all the important apps, and with the SBP shell the same pretty interface. Check it out...
Anonymous, 14 Nov 2010Yes it can and the native way, not a desperate cumbersome copy of Iphone......Are you sure.For example at 8:53 in that video where the home screens spin or what about swipe texting.Back up what you are saying with a link or a you tube clip.
[deleted post]Score here do not mean anything the real army are the people on the stock market,
first thing to remember every morning as you wake up is that Apple is a
$ 300 billion company second only to Exxon and the Iphone is 40% of the business
[deleted post]Yes it can and the native way, not a desperate cumbersome copy of Iphone......
[deleted post]That interface certainly is a breath of fresh air for Nokia.
Regarding swipe for texting, it looks like its faster once you get used to it.
It can be concluded that iOS is superior to any offering other smartphone manufacturers have to offer out there. Until Android fixes it flaws, even WP7 or WebOS are more suitable alternatives.

Anonymous, 13 Nov 2010just block the @ the point of receving the cellular reception. just like those nokia phones ... moreI got my iphone4 for $33.75 on a 3 year contract with my plan $20 cheaper and a better plan, but what was most important to me was that my iphone4 would hold calls in the basement where I live, if not I would sell it. So I'm keeping it.
Does iphone 4 show call waiting if im calling my friend and he have a call while am calling him
Anonymous, 13 Nov 2010just block the @ the point of receving the cellular reception. just like those nokia phones ... moreI just called fido at 611 and listened to the recording via speakerphone while completely covering the antenna joint and guess what. It held the call fine and after 3 minutes I ended the call myself just to prove a point to you.
