stvetfly, if you need to advertize your crap on a site called ``i-am-bored`` to gain customers, it`s probably because your website isn`t likely to have much success
sorry man

Its just Apple being Apple. "look we re-made everything and its cool"
Test it first you turnips.
Oh wait....you did....you "left" it in a bar!

Apple are bleating on about "face time". In other words video calling. I was doing that 6 years ago on my old LG phone. It was done over a 3G network then though. No need for Wi FI.
Apple, once again, re-inventing ANCIENT technology.
Mr Jobs...go boil your f**king head you pr1ck

"When Steve Jobs introduced the iPhone 4 at Apple Worldwide Developers Conference, he described the integrated antenna as "really cool engineering". "

Wait, he didn`t describe it as "World-changing. It will save children in Africa while cleaning up the Gulf Coast and rebuilding New Orleans and Haiti and cure AIDS"? How uncharacteristic of him.

Oh no. He must be dying of cancer again.

Maybe they`ll test the next one (and make sure it actually passes) before they release it. Naaa...

Apple designs lots of pretty looking devices... not a lot of useful ones.

So much for elegance in design. Maybe they should design their beta testing phase a little more elegantly. snicker snicker.

When I saw that one video, I thought about how I always try to keep my hand off the antenna with every phone that I held to get better signal and how making that virtually impossible is kind of dumb move. Apparently, I was right. Too bad I never said it before and nobody is going to believe me now. Anyway, I`m pretty sure Apple will claim that "this technology is inferior and dying anyway" and advise to use other means of communication instead, and 3 months later they will probably fix this.

@megavidiot : Dude, get the HTC Legend. I work for Virgin Mobile, the HTC Legend FAR surpasses any iPhone out there, and I`m not just talking about RAM and Processor.

the iP4 does have a bigger processor, but it`s underclocked so it does not overheat.

Plus with the Legend, everything runs smooth.

Have you seen the prices of the iPhone 4? Google shop is coming back with figures of around £800!! I`m sorry, NO phone is worth that much money.

But don`t worry all you Apple fanboys - the new, improved Apple iPhone 5 will be along, solving the antenna problem but creating several new problems in the process, will be out just in time for Christmas for £700.

Guess the testing process never involved actually HOLDING the phone for fear of the design leaking?

Apple... really? Don`t you have people to test these things? Or do you skip the whole beta process to make more dough?

Well, that is a major fault for a phone.
Didn`t they think to put it in the top and the phone jack/button on the bottom? You only push the thing once.

Hopefully this will cool off some of the more hot headed apple enthusiasts. It`ll be a healthy change of mind.

Why would you even try with Apple`s products anymore? Everyone knows that the products suck and Steve Jobs has control issues that are related to one not being able to use the products the way they wish, but they must succumb to what Jobs wishes you to use.
Both of my parents worked for Apple computers and suffered quite a lot of abuse until they were put on disability and eventually fired. After four years, Apple had finally settled on a payment for the abuse they put my parents through.
And, after knowing all of these horrible things Apple And Steve Jobs has done and IS still doing, people are still buying such products as the iPhone? These people are really sad.
