I knew people hated Apple, but I had no idea it spread to the tech bloggers who drummed up this whole farce.
My wife and I were holding out on the iPhone until we could understand the extent of the "problem." Now a number of my friends have their ip4s, and none have problems with their phones. On the contrary, they love them. We will be ordering our new iPhones this week.
The extent of this problem has been exaggerated by people with an agenda. In this thread alone, so much of the dramatic noise about signal issues come from people who do not/will not own an ip4. Personally, I'd like to know how these folks have so much time on their hands that they can go to various sites, register, and conduct their private propaganda campaigns.
At the end of the day, it's "The iPhone Antenna Song" that has it right...
If you don't want an iPhone 4
Don't buy it.
If you bought one and you don't like it
bring it back.
...but, you know you wont.
BTW, I thought it was hilarious that Apple started off the Press Conference with this jingle.
