Apple CEO Steve Jobs is not used to being said what to do with his device.
When people started telling that his device was not good enough, he was outraged. He started telling how they need to hold the ‘magic device’. Consumer Reports was the one to blame for all these hassles. That was why he was ‘stunned and embarrassed’.
Some points to prove that he wasn’t at ease in the press meet:
- Admitting "We’re not perfect” shouldn’t have been easy for Jobs. That is why he started his presentation by admitting the truth.
- He was still in defensive mood – repeatedly calling out the press for blowing the problem out of proportion.
- Saying and trying to prove, the antenna problem isn’t unique to Apple.
And yes, nobody cared! As long as they can get their hand on the $29 ‘bumper,’ for free!
Those, who heard of the the Apple engineers knowing about the problem beforehand, are asking, ‘Is Apple staffed with people afraid to tell the truth?’
Since the iPhone 4 went on sale yesterday, a number of reports have begun to appear online about the users having issues with the signal strength. When the phone is held with hand over the new steel band that encases the iPhone, the signal strengt reduced and loose the connection.
Apple’s response to the problem:
“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. This is a fact of life for every wireless phone. If you ever experience this on your iPhone 4, avoid gripping it in the lower left corner in a way that covers both sides of the black strip in the metal band, or simply use one of many available cases.”
That means, Apple publicly admits to their antenna design flaws within the iPhone 4 that can reduce reception quality.
