We Flush It – You Flaunt It

Is basically the advice from Steve Jobs on the laughable state of the new iPhone 4…
Originally suggested as the first 4G mobile which it isn’t, the iPhone 4 has a bad habit of not being able to receive a signal if you hold it in a particular way – you know, like NORMALLY!!!
This is apparently worse if you hold the phone in your left hand…
The original idea was that the entire steel casement was to be the antenna, but is actually based at the lower left hand side of the unit. Once your hand covers it – you lose all signal!!
Apple said: “Gripping any mobile phone will result in some attenuation of its antenna performance, with certain places being worse than others depending on the placement of the antennas.”
Steve Jobs on the other hand simply replied “All phones have sensitive areas”, which is basically a polite “go away” response from the billionaire…
An irony? When Steve Jobs introduced the iPhone 4 at Apple Worldwide Developers Conference, he described the integrated antenna as “really cool engineering”.
Here in this YouTube vid, the problem is tested – see for your self…

I stand by my conviction that both iPhone and iPad products are all flash and no substance and simply carrots dangled to help you spend a small extra fortune with Apple later.
