    LoopInsight, Engadget and others are reporting that Apple will be holding a press conference this Friday.
    The topic of discussion, of course, is the iPhone 4 which has received much press over the past few weeks regarding a signal loss issue when it is held in certain ways. A Consumer Reports article reignited discussion of this issue earlier this week.

    Great, but I don't expect to see more than denials and sales numbers.

    Let's hope that there is a real fix or recall for the antenna problem.

    Just in time for the Canadian release. This conference will tell me whether I get a new iPhone 4 or if I'm getting a Samsung Galaxy S.

    Mashable had a great article on what Apple needs to do.

    1. Acknowledge That the Antenna Problem Is Real
    2. Go into the Technical Details
    3. Roll Out the Software Update
    4. Make the Bumpers Free
    5. No Matter What, Don’t Issue an iPhone 4 Recall
