That was actually a pretty good read.
when are they gonna address the proximity sensor issue?
definitely - thought the 3 steps forward, one step back point was especially interesting (to me at least)
I would assume that they're going to roll it into the update, as well as fixes for the volume issues, screen rotation issues, etc.
I love that guy. He always tells it like it is, no sugar coating.
Me too, I think he nailed it with that one. I can't even imagine how frustrating it must be for the iPhone engineers who worked tirelessly on the design.
Loved the bit about the lawsuits that have been filed. Laughed hard.
Hilarious but so true.
Yep @gruber nails it every time.
This is EXACTLY how I felt after reading Apple's announcement this morning. They are using this to be able to shift the blame back to AT&T for the network. Now that the iPhone's signal "bars" will be more accurate (according to AT&T's own scale), and not trumped up like before, Apple will be able to say "well if the network was better and you had more coverage and a stronger signal, you wouldn't be having any reception issues" when they get a complaint about the antenna/reception.
That's great. I always enjoy reading his take on things.
I'm sure a lot of people will say that shift of blame is well deserved.
Yep, he's dead on.
My phone will lose bars when put in the death grip. Yet i still haven't dropped a call on it yet.
Now that apple has somewhat responded, i'm moving on. I'm over it. I'll see how the patch works when it comes out. But unless i start dropping calls all the time, i'm saying there's nothing wrong with my phone.
Jobs should hire this guy on for handling Press.... Seriously...
I agree, his translation is pretty spot on from how I felt while reading that PR.

Ha. Pretty funny stuff. Especially true that Apple is going to put the blame back on ATT for their coverage.
He could've pointed out this sentence separately as well:
"We are also making bars one, two and three a bit taller so they will be easier to see."
Translation: Users are going to be seeing the lower signal bars a LOT more often.
Hilarious translation. Passing the blame to AT&T is spot on.
The letter is targeted right at the hearts of the whiners!
Return it! WE DARE YOU!
I love John Gruber's blog!
That was an awesome read.
that's pretty awesome.
I don't seem to lose any speed from holding it one way or the other. And I have yet to experience a dropped call. Probably because I have had an iPhone for years now and I avoid making calls in areas i know they are gonna drop..
That was a great write up. Seems to have brought about a real change in tune from a lot of people.
