No, I was responding to the post saying how "arrogant" and so forth Apple's statements on the iPhone 4 antenna have been.
I'm saying that the fact that the consumer's didn't appreciate the truth of the statement "your holding it wrong," and instead take it as an insult
, is basically due to their lack of intelligence/savy/perception/etc. I was also poking fun at Apple a bit for being in so elitist that it never even occurred
to them that a lot of people hold the phone in this troglodytic "cupped-paw-to-the-head" fashion that stops the signal.
The phone is what it is. I think it's a great design and don't believe there is any problem with it given that it works exactly the way it was designed to work and does so exceedingly well
. It seems obvious to me that the signal degradation that occurs when you hold the phone the "wrong way," is far from a surprise to the engineers and not a "flaw" per se. It was designed
If there are
iPhone 4's that are defective in some way (and I'm not really convinced there are yet), then it's certainly not all of them, or even a large number of them.
