    Analysis - Apple’s emergency press event was surprisingly inept

    The decision to belittle the problem, then say everyone has it, then attack the reporting of it was not cool.

    surprisingly, they've gone at it with such amazing arrogance.

    What amuses me is how they completely fail to acknowledge any fault of the external antenna, yet they do acknowledge touching it changes the resonant frequency. So they recommend coating it in plastic, which fixes the problem. You mean like every other mobile phone manufacturer already has. They have all coated theirs with the phones body plastic.

    Yet they then go on to claim those coated ones have an issue.

    Muppets.

    They are in a position to be arrogant though. And regardless of this debacle many consumers will gloss over it just like Steve did. Thats the joys of fanboys. Obviously nothing can ever be apples fault! It must be something else. Even more people will go out and buy the iphone 5 im sure.

    Is this a typo, or am I not understanding the sentance on the 1st page? I can't get my head round it - but I can work out what you are trying to say.

    Does it make more sense without the last comma? Jobs opened with an extended diatribe on how this isn't really an issue anyway, but that the iPhone's competitors also struggle with this issue that isn't.

    Just trying to highlight the contradiction of belittling an issue, then saying everyone has it. Although perhaps Apple thinks that pointing out everyone has it does belittle it.

    The wait is over!

    Apple are proud to annouce the iPhone 5...



    Now featuring a retractable aerial to give you the best ever reception!

    [edit/on topic]
    Nice of apple to bite the hand that feeds them. This may encourage the major online tech sites to have a more negative view on new Apple products.

    Re: Analysis - Apple’s emergency press event was surprisingly inept

    Ah I get you now...

    The issue that isn't an issue. (would make a good header for the paragraph)

    Jobs opened with an extended diatribe on how this isn't really an issue anyway, but that the iPhone's competitors also struggle with this issue, that according to Jobs isn't really an issue anyway... (rinse and repeat) Understandably, they weren't too pleased at being dragged into this affair, and many have commented subsequently...

    Although my version ^ could definitely be tidied up... and seems to go on and on.

    ---

    It's not an issue for the competitors because they don't employ the same design as Apple's iPhone4 - it appears the competitors to Apple deliberately avoided this issue because they knew it would be an issue

    But it isn't an issue, don't you get that? The iPhone doesn't have an issue, it's just the same as every other smartphone that has an issue. It's just not a problem, no more of a problem than any other smartphone manufacturer doesn't have to deal with anyway.

    Made more sense to me without that last comma.

    All this will do it make sure that manufacturers such as RIM, Nokia et al will push their designs as not having problems like Apple's...

    I would hope that the major online tech site would have an objective view of anybody's products. If not then they're just another partizan blog, surely? I trust you are not supporting bias or censorship in reporting...

    Re: Analysis - Apple’s emergency press event was surprisingly inept

    I have never had a reception issue with any previous phone I've ever held in my hand. My X10 works lovely in both hands and while I know it has issues at least SE aren't blaming it on everyone but themselves. Its this sort of arrogance that so annoys me with apple, their products and their fanboys.

    Re: Analysis - Apple’s emergency press event was surprisingly inept

    Steve Jobs, in an unprecedented PR gesture, has decided to combat the "unfair" negative media coverage by offering all iPhone 4 owners a free accessory, in case they want to use their iPhone as a telephone once in a while.
