So Apple did what it needed to do. This is over IMHO. That being said... Steve spent a good chunk of time pointing out how all smartphones have this problem. It isn't just an iPhone problem. What I find odd about this, listening to Apple marketing and Steve himself, is that it is Apple's contention that the iPhone isn't like other smartphones. It is better. It is great. It delivers an unequaled user experience, etc, etc. So it has a serious flaw like other...
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.
I don't understand how these accounts are being "hacked." There is nothing in the story to suggest Apple has had a security breach. This leads me to believe that the hacking in question is really just users doing stupid things with their account information. Or maybe they are Windows users that have some sort of malware on their system that sending out their information. Plus, while I understand it is a convenience, you should never let a vendor hold onto your credit...
I am curious, if you folks hate these stories so much why do you read them? I have no idea if this particular rumor is accurate, I will say AT&T recent actions (moving away from unlimited data, early upgrade options) suggest they won't be the exclusive iPhone carrier for long. I am going out on a limb and say this story is probably true. In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if the iPhone ended up on Verizon sooner than that. -kpluck
The Nexus One and there are others. You need just to pull your head out of your butt long enough to search a bit. It is not an uncommon problem.
That is probably wise. After some time with the new install on my 3G I am kind of wishing I had waited. It definitely feels sluggish. At first it didn't seem so bad but now with after I have spent some time with it I have run into several spots where response is slow. -kpluck
I believe everyone with a post count of less than 10 is having the issue. Very odd. -kpluck
Without knowing the capabilities of their phone system that is a useless metric. -kpluck
You were making a great point up until you typed the part in bold. Apple only cares about the greatest profits (as it should be, that isn't a dig). You are foolish to assume the greatest profits come with the largest amount of customers. The design was chosen it to make it look cool. Its price was raised to increase profits. Steve knows his users and his users are form over function idiots as a rule. They rather pay a lot of money for a cool looking under powered computer,...
So what if Android gets a foothold. Windows machines outnumber Apple machines when it comes to desktop computing, yet Apple manages to sell lots of hardware and make lots of money. It is not that I think Apple ignores market share but it certainly isn't their primary focus. Nor should it be. That being said, I believe the reason why AT&T expanded the eligibility requirements for the new phone is because they know they won't be the only iPhone carrier much longer and they...
