Wow! Reports from Singapore and Australia launches. iPhones performing great and buyers are happy. So much for antennagate. Call quality better than ever.
iPhone 4 has kicked Galaxy S' ass with Antennagate AND without launching in all countries planned either. Unbelievable marketing, truly benefitting a phone of marvelous design and technology far surpassing anything the market has to offer at the moment. The iPhone is the work of genius!

"Twelve years ago today,Steve jobs stood onstage at Macworld and told the crowd that apple had found an investor to help cure its financial ills.Microsoft."
"We have to let go of this notion that for Apple to win, Microsoft has to lose" said a darker haired jobs.
"In addition the macintosh would also provide Microsoft with an additional market for office and internet explorer.In return apple would drop a long running lawsuit against Microsoft,alleging(notice the word alleging,in brackets are my words) that Redmond had copied crucial aspects of the mac operating system when creating windows.
So they helped each other.Apple needed financial help,possibly the reason for starting a lawsuit against Microsoft and microsoft gained with internet explorer on macs and apple agreeing to drop a lawsuit.
Don't need a microscope to see how much better the retina display is. It's very obvious what an improvement it is. I can't believe how beautiful the display is on the iPhone. Nearly didn't buy it in the beginning. I'm glad I tried it out first.

... morethe retina display is only good if you use your iphone4 under the microscope or using a magnifier.
other than that.... it's only good on the spec sheet. and it has no real benefit.
it just like saying that the new publication saying that they were better because they were using the 3000dpi printer compared to current publication such as Time Magazine that use 1500dpi printer.

Microsoft gave that cash to Apple as part of a settlement when Intel and Microsoft were found using Quicktime code stolen from Apple via the San Francisco Canyon Company.

Microsoft owns zero percent of Apple.in 1997 microsoft buy $150 million dollar worth in apple ownership when apple was about to go broke, microsoft still hold that percent of ownership in apple.
just google it and you will find it for yourself.
for me what u pay for this phone is the great user experience. Otherwise some of its features is also present in other phone. So why will you spend some money if other device are also capable of what iphone can do.

iPhone 4 is doing incredible well with people realizing how great it is, outselling and outpacing it's rivals. Blackberry now going to be banned in UAE and Saudi (unless RIM do something) which will mean even more sales for iPhone. Singapore launch pre-orders sold out the day before. Amazing!
