    A conspiracy theory coming up. Apple intentionally made the signal issue for more publicity than the iPhone already had. Sure, they might lose a couple of hundred customers in the beginning but they'll gain A LOT more in the long run.

    Headlines @ iPhone release:

    APPLE IPHONE 4 HERE! GO GRAB IT!!! PRE ORDER NOW!!!

    Sales go up...

    ...signal issues blablabla

    Resulted i headlines like these:

    APPLE'S NEW PRODUCT FLAWED AND CARRIES ISSUES!

    sales go down...

    Apple fixes problem and is dubbed hero.

    Headlines:

    IPHONE 4 UPDATE ARRIVES, IT IS NOW PERFECT, AGAIN! GO GRAB IT!!!

    sales go up...


    Frikkin' genius :apple:

    PR EPIC FAIL. No. This was not in the Apple PR "plan."

    I doubt it. Not everything Apple does is on purpose.

    No. Despite the old saying, there really is such a thing as bad publicity.

    I know I saw someone post this same kind of crap yesterday. Anyway, no, Apple didn’t do that, unless they’re about to sell themselves to Microsoft.

    Conspiracy theory: I'm constipated today because the government secretly stuck a probe up my ass last night.

    People accused Coca-Cola of removing the original coke and replacing it with "new coke" to cause a fury so they could bring back the original and increase sales.

    When asked - the CEO gave the best quote of all time.

    "The truth is - we're not that dumb - and we're not that smart"

    The CEO of BP just announced that they spilled all that oil to get attention so that they could sell more oil!

    I' sure the iPhone had something to do with the JFK assassination; 911 and the BP oil spill.
