Never should have been made in the first place. It's very juvenile, especially since most of their rivals weren't really taking major shots at them.
After Apple posted the last attack video, and NO ONE ELSE could replicate it, I think they felt the heat was on. The best way to hide your lies and fabrications is to remove them and never speak of them again.
I hope some lawyers give Apple a call and ask them about those videos (or probably already have, hence their removal). No doubt they caused some damage. Damage that was based on misconceptions. And we really shouldn't be surprised these videos were misrepresenting the truth. Apple has a very strong track record of misrepresenting the truth (the commercials showing app switching in the blink of an eye, the "entire internet" commercials they were forced to remove, the perfect FaceTime pictures they later changed, etc...).
Yeah well so far only the USA seems to have this trouble. Australia not, Sweden/Norway not and myself in the Netherlands not. Might I venture to say there is another end on your antenna, the AT&T end? The iPhone seems to have a different characteristic then the 3GS but it's certainly not worse, it's often a lot better!
Well unless you live in a poor AT&T area. And there seem to be left quite a few of these??!!
The german "consumer reports" equivalent Stiftung Warentest tested the iPhone 4 and found a signal loss of 90% using one finger at the right spot.
Other phones showed a signal loss of 25% using the "death grip".
It is most certainly not a US or AT&T problem.
The issue has been reproduced on iPhone 4s sold in several countries and used on several networks.
An Australian carrier is recommending that customers use the phone with a case if they live in an area of weaker signal.
Big deal. They remove the I'm a Mac/I'm a PC commercials also. Those death grip videos already went viral. They fulfilled their purpose.
The damage has already been done. Remember the press conference?
About they took that ridiculous video down. They made themselves look immeasurably insecure with that response.
I get it on mine, but its not really a big deal though - pretty minor really.
I didn't mention Germany
But jokes aside, I don't care how much atteniation, signal loss or what ever I've got, as long as it keeps calling and sending data back and forth, it's a good phone in my book. And overhere tue iPhone 4 is better than any other phone I've used in the past 10 years. Yes I can get the signal bars down, so what? It works quite well in daily life.
Same for me. Honestly, if someone doesn't notice an attenuation problem in their everyday use, it isn't really a problem, no matter how loudly someone screams that all phones have the problem. Most people don't notice.
Yes, attenuation problem occurs and as long as you don't start with 2 or 3 bars and dropping you call, I could care-less... I have 4-5 bars and it always drops to 3 bars and they still work
Hot cakes wish they sold as fast as iPhone 4s.
Doesn't make the issue any less real.
I think Apple's biggest enemy in this whole affair has been Apple. For the first time I can think of - their PR has been absolutely horrendous at every turn since the launch of the iPhone 4.
We can argue about the device itself and the design all we want. But I think we can all agree that the PR coming out of Apple has never been worse regarding this matter.
They probably ran into some legal trouble that they didn't want to deal with, so it'd be just easier to remove the page.
Apple tried to deflect their antenna design flaw by saying "others do it too". Sounds like a pretty insecure position to take. But who cares... next year will bring something else to complain about from Apple.
Are you talking about the death grip on the X? If so, I replicated it to a Verizon employee in the Verizon store. It was quite easy to do.
But I am not saying to be able to death grip something, and have data lose like on the iphone are the same thing.
It was an unbecoming series of potshots, inconsistent with the usual above-it-all posture they try to maintain.
Hardware fix is Coming! This is just a preliminary step
Don't stop believing. If it comes before June 2011 I'll mail you a quarter.
Yet another bumbling fumble by Apple ... when will they get their **** together???
No one in their right mind can condone Apple's atrocious behavior and smear campaign unless they are a fanboy.
