1) And just look at how much the iPad case covers, that thing must be really poorly made.
2) You say that as if Apple is never scrutinized, that they could pull a fast on on all their users and scam an extra charge from them. They are evil, after all¡ What CE company is put more under a microscope or sued over as many silly things as Apple.
3) Or, you are saying Apple doesnt realize they are scrutinized, despite all the evidence to the contrary. Could they really be that stupid?
4) The next step is saying they designed it that way to require Bumpers. But I guess they only designed some units that way, because not all are experiencing it. Today I was I had the worse 3G Ive ever had, had to turn 3G off to get EDGE and GPRS just to get any data. Even with less than 5 bars I still couldnt get it to freak out and go to No Service.
5) General rule of thumb: If you have a theory that screams conspiracy, its best to never speak aloud.
