    If this guy thinks he is impressing anybody, he isn't. Blame the iCEO? Unprofessional. Next time, do it right and don't hash out internal grudges in the press.



    Are you for real?

    This just proves that the engineer doesn't know how to get his point across. I bet he's real proud of himself!

    Anyways all this will be rendered moot when 4.0.1 includes a SOFTWARE fix that solves everyone's problems. Then Apple will use the Friday press conference to declare victory.



    Good god almighty.. I do look forward to your future posts!

    they had the whole circumference of the case to make the antenna splits. Why the one spot most likely to short between the two by just holding it? Why not the top middle or bottom middle or some other spot? Pick up any phone and cradle it in your hand. Whats the pone spot that makes the most contact? Right where they put it. Its mind boggling to have made such a blunder.



    Blunders happen.

    I would like to try, but apparently you didn't read the article because the source is listed as "anonymous."



    But lets say it is accurate. We still don't have a date to when it happened. For all we know, it was a previous design that was being discussed and the production version could be different.



    I am not saying the antenna design isn't a problem, it most certainly is.



    What I am saying is that you are an idiot, everyone knows this.

    But hasn't anyone learned anything about putting their faith in unconfirmed rumors put forward by bloggers? Maybe if someone is willing to come forward and use their name, we might have a story here. Or maybe if Ruben or someone in a position to know confirms it?



    You do realize that Bloomberg News is not a "blogger," right?

    at&t handles more data traffic than all the other US carriers combined. Heroic. I'd like to see VZW buckle under that.

    Don't you know, a conspiracy requires more than one party? Of course you're free to try to paint commenters here anyway you'd like. Good luck with that and thanks for playing.

    Not very adept at processing information given the context, are you? Here, let me help: He's possibly talking about the Apple engineer Ruben Caballero, and Bloomberg.

    Sorry, Apple engineer, Bloomberg, take your choice. Both are being dissed, if you haven't noticed.

    My, such a short post really bunched your panties. Resorting to name calling. Really makes you look better.

    Don't you know? The conspiracy would be within Apple, which astonishingly is made up of more than on person.

    I see you're still confused. I didn't put any particular faith in that survey. I simply pointed out that it's the only data available. That doesn't make it right - but even if it's only got a 1% chance of being right, that's still better than anything you've provided.



    So where is the data claiming that there are massive returns on the iPhone?

    True. Bloggers sometimes list the names of their sources.

    Oh boy. We have someone that believes the antenna "shorts out" here. Goodbye. \

    And sometimes Bloomberg does as well. In fact, very often.
