    Interesting that engadget invites ppl to comment on problems with apple products... but no one has done that yet!
    Ha-Ha! Made Ya Read!

    well, since they saw apple deleting threads AND since they did test this defect out, they figured there needs to be a place that wont get censored in a biased way.
    Mind you, engadget doesnt hate apple. They love the iphone4 sans the bad antenna

    Apple deleting stuff off their own forums is equivalent to you snipping stuff you don't approve of out of YOUR copy of the NY Times.

    Evil empire indeed!

    Not really.

    The point is not that they were snipping things out that had no relevance, but that they were cutting out all things that could possibly give them bad press.

    It would be like the NYT having an Editorial section where no admonishing editorials of the writers or any of their stories or positions were allowed. Only the "good" stuff.


    Some of the comments were probably just bashing Apple (typical), but word is they deleted all comments.

    I have seen several articles on PCworld about that, and they tend to be rather applehappy.....

    apparently apple will have a news conference Friday about the iphone antenna.

    i wonder what the spin will be.

    That they tried their best on what was a minor engineering problem and that the Apple User means more to them than XXX YYY.

    They will probably drop the price/give a $30 rebate or something. The real money they make is though their cut of the service cost and the Apple Store anyway.

    MY point is that doing that in any form doesn't stop the bad press. The Internet is not like a newspaper at all, where typically a person chooses one and accepts that as their news source. If one site won't allow certain material, there are dozens or hundreds of others that will. The rest of the world is still getting the information, as it would if you censored your own copy of your newspaper. Then you are the only one in the dark.

    Apple would be better served by allowing the commentary and responding to it, rather than trying to hush it up.

    The reality is that Apple likely wants to deflect at least some of the initial backlash AT&T will face for reporting the signal bars without any concessions. Concessions that used to make coverage look better than it really is.
    exactly what i have been saying in other forums. It's so obvious that apple purposely fudged the signal bars to make it show from the very first iphone that the reception rocked. Now that an even bigger and more obvious problem appeared, they "found" an issue and "fixed" it as to offset the dramatic effect of full bars to no bars when held wrong.

    So now when you hold it "wrong" and you lose the signal, it's more like you lost 2 bars instead of the whole 5.

    with the new update, I now have a solid 2 bars at home when it used to be 5. I still get the same amount of dropped calls...shocker.
