Whoopi Goldberg is finally getting the respect she deserves.
sadly not from her acting, but her way to deal with the iphone issue.
Apple why don't you speak about iPhone like you do it always. You are the people that would like convince us that the iPhone 4 is the best on the market. Don't tell us naive jokes that other phones have problems too. The problem is that if the iPhone is the best, you would certainly not compare it with other phones that have problems. In my opinion, Apple is losing credibility more and more with each new excuse.

BECAUSE IT IS WAY WORSE THAN ANY MOBILE PHONE PROBLEMS..you think the media is that lame and stup%^ that they will concentrate on apple alone and let the other company get away with it? grow up please...
" this antennagate is only affecting a few unlucky customers."
a few?? oh dear!!! so people are also that stup%^ that they rant about this issue if it only a few of them??? dear oh dear!!!
" A lot of phones drop signal as presented by not only Apple but quite a lot of other people check youtube."
correct..but not as worse as apple iphone4..hmmmmmm.........
" The game is all about selling phones you don't sell you lose your Job."
and is that responsible enough? is that taking the consumers welfare?
or just PURE GREED???? hmmmmmmmm...
" No other phone has ever sold more phones in the first week of release in fact the Iphone 4 actually broke the record set by the 3GS. Until the day another phone out sells the Iphone, it shall reign supreme. "
hearing yourself??? when does quantity more important than quality???
As an Apple fan this is sad.
-Flat Battery & hell of a tight grip to get only 2 bars.
I turned my Wi-Fi off for you that day at the conference so you could connect, be nice please.
Why dont they try it also on other iphone models? let say iphone 2g, 3g, 3gs? I guess they're afraid that it will show the issues too!
they are comparing with others brand, but the question still remain, how do they solve this problem....don't divert attention to others phone makers...if you comparing your so-called best product with others not so best product, then your product also become not so best product...
Not so easy for Steve Job to admit and announce to the whole world that Iphone4 has a defect. I believe he is under lots of stress.
Remember .... Apple only has one phone product ... Iphone3GS but it is getting old and people..the Apple fanboys, Telcos, App developers, games developers, are waiting for Iphone4.
Apple puts all most of the eggs in one basket which is the iphone4. His businees model does not allow a single product failure!!!! Not like Nokia, Samsung, SonyEricsson, Motorola, HTC where they have multiple products.
Imagine ..... admit defect ... recall 3 million phone on the streets.... stop production ..... re-design the phone's antenna .... another 6mths to 9mths delay .... unable to fullfill contract/order from big telcos....pay LD (Liquidated Damage) ???? ... Dissapoint all the Apple Fanboys is loosing the brand image and loosing brand image is loosing big bucks$$$ for Apple...... what about the App Store ... people reduce patronising the App Store .... revenue down from App Store ... loosing $$$ again. How about the Iadvertisement in IOS4 ... Telcos will be dissappointed they cannot earn $$$ from advertisement and data traffic ..... Telco loose confident on Apple products .... Oh ... Foxxcon .... all their manufacturing line running day and night, stockpiling up the Iphone4 ... stop production???
so on and so on ......... I can't imagine that.
He will be kick out of the board if he admit defect in Iphone4. Anyway the investors... won't allow that to happen.
What he can do now is to blame others(Nokia, Samsung, Motorola, RIM ....etc) and be ready to put up a fight in the court.... Apple has very good lawyers and they have cash to go to court .... court case usually drags for years... by then, people on the street will forget the incident.
Now he need to buy some time ...... giving free cases which cost Apple on USD$1.00 ... cheap and good idea... isn't it
In the meantime, their top engineers will look for a solution to patch up the antenna design flaw .... maybe a thick layer of teflon coating at the side, I think should do the magic. Then secretly or not secretly cut in to the production and out it goes to the market. Well ...not all user will experience the drop call ...even so ... not all will request for a product refund. So it is a good bet that they don't admit the mistake at all
Well ..... we will see how things turn out .... Good Luck Apple ... Stay healthy Steve Job....
Peter, 21 Jul 2010"You need to wake up; it has the worst reception than any other smart phone. It can’t get... moreIn response to Peter. The main problem is, instead of admitting that the iPhone 4 has a issue with reception sometimes and being mature and polite as you are, and you are being very mature and polite in your posts. Mr Jobs decided to be immature and started pointing fingers saying "But all our competitors phones do it too, wah wah", when he just should have said we are working on fixing the problem and here is a bandaid (the covers) until its fixed.
That is why everyone is up in arms about the issue.
i don't have anything with apple, but this is wrong. they got a problem that they should have fixed, and insted they do nothing and point finger. i don't understand one thing. it's imposible that apple didn't know about the reception problem... why did they relesed it with this problem?

A couple months back share holders had voiced their concerns over the failure to out smart Steve Jobs and Co, which led to a Nokia management shake up, read this http://www.mobile-computing-news.co.uk/nokia/5925/massive-nokia-reportedly-searching-for-new-ceo.html
Again I ask, if this phone is such a crappy phone why are you here? I mean you know it's crap so go and support the platforms you prefer! why is the media concentrating on iphone issues? The N97 was worse we never heard such an out cry, but off course Nokia fanboys' answer to to this is "I was one of the unlucky few", yet will not accept that this antennagate is only affecting a few unlucky customers. A lot of phones drop signal as presented by not only Apple but quite a lot of other people check youtube.
The game is all about selling phones you don't sell you lose your Job. Nokia are none existent in the high end sector until the N8 is released. No other phone has ever sold more phones in the first week of release in fact the Iphone 4 actually broke the record set by the 3GS.
Until the day another phone out sells the Iphone, it shall reign supreme.
I have nokia n97 mini and the problem in the signal I have only noticed once or twice in the period of 8months and for apple they thought they could do whatever they want and get away from it but this time they got red handed . If the problem in nokia is there nobody has noiced it for a year now so that not come under defect and with my experience Says you don't hold Nokia n97mini that way u hold an iPhone because of the fact that nokia has an resistive screen and iPhone have an capacitive screen so they give different approach for doing things.
So it's is

all phones reduces/losses signal when held in a certain way..
the question is "how about when you are in a call"
apple will never face this issue.
Anonymous, 22 Jul 2010Most of the videos on online showing the Iphone death grip are the same as shown in this video... moreare you a tool. seriously, if a fault is pointed out to a company it is up the company to fix it not to say "Well there's suck a little as well".
The problem is with apple and if all these other phones where such a problem than there would be a big huff about them. My friends own the n97 mini and they don't have a drop out problem in any area they go to. Whether it is a strong signal area or not.
So apple should stop acting like young children and grow up.
Agian... Steve is just a fool. Let me explain. Hold & grip the phone during call, signal will change from 3G network to 2G network. What the so called apple to prove others mobile phone manufacturer having the same issue as iPhone4, is totally wrong. Because apple is NOT showing the other mobile manufacturer signal bar during a call(because the issue happened during call). This is the main and major point that they never show out. Just showing hold & grip the phone without a call is just NONSENSE!
"next victim"..nokia n97
I think people juz go n try iphone2 g,3g,3gs,4g..
see the issue will same or not with right now..
appl e really stupid company..
they only know to blame proble m to others brand phone..but totally dont know how to fixing their issue/problem!!!
Now i ask you..
Why you (apple) juz dont want list out all handphones from nokia,htc,se,samsung,m0t0r0la..after that you can said:"all phones suffing the antenna strength issue/problem"..
