I never liked what Apple was doing to the world. For instance, Steve Jobs is a brilliant visionary but an arrogant one who thinks everything he does is being done for the first time. Apple was indeed first in many parts of evolution of technology and manufacturing of cellular phones but in no way does an explanation like this can cover up for the mess they have created with the new iPhone 4.
So the design is new, cool, But on the other hand it is so cool that the phone signals are gone… why you ask. You already know the answer and that is because you don’t know how to hold an iPhone. Its to be held in a unique fashion which has never been done before just so that you can get a complete call and antenna is not blocked. Duh! Nokia is right in their campaign, no matter how you hold a Nokia phone, it works! Moreover, read through the following statement and decide for yourself about what were the Apple engineers doing if they didn’t know how to calculate the formula which displays the signal strength.
“We were stunned to find that the formula we use to calculate how many bars of signal strength to display is totally wrong,” it said in a statement. “Our formula, in many instances, mistakenly displays 2 more bars than it should for a given signal strength. For example, we sometimes display 4 bars when we should be displaying as few as 2 bars. Users observing a drop of several bars when they grip their iPhone in a certain way are most likely in an area with very weak signal strength, but they don’t know it because we are erroneously displaying 4 or 5 bars. Their big drop in bars is because their high bars were never real in the first place.”
OMG here!! Mr. Jobs, it was not your fault but it was your Chief Engineer’s fault who hired these guys! Fire him…
The bars were never real in the first place, like if the phone is displaying 100% signal strength, it is actually getting only ~70%. This is cheating and it was actually intelligent on Steve Job’s part to tell this to press otherwise we could have seen a lawsuit coming their way for lying to the customers.
Secondly, if there is an issue at hand, then why is Apple trying to sell a rubber band to the customer for $29. Apple calls it a “rubber bumper” but it is a rubber band. They should send it to their customers for FREE!! Apple sold 1.4 million iPhone 4 in the first week and made millions out of it, they can afford to oblige their customers for being stupid enough to buy the latest iPhone. I hate these kind of tactics by companies like Apple. They are only their to leech the customer just because they can (and of course customers are dumb enough to follow them just so that they can look cool too!)
Here’s a video which I absolutely loved and gives out a clear depiction of who is an iPhone customer and how Apple has been successfully brain washing them over the years. Enjoy!
