    Its pretty sad that they are supposed to be unbiased. I know about what happened between them and apple but come on its a bit over the top already.

    They're a blog, that doesn't mean that they are supposed to be unbiased. Also, they posted links to positive reviews but pretty much the only news about the iPhone 4 right now is about its various shortcomings.

    A man of the people. The right sort of people.
    To be expected. You take legal proceedings against a publication and the publication will set out to hurt you in the way it knows best. Right or wrong, it's no surprise.

    I unsubsribed from their RSS. Every single item was iPhone related. And it's not like there's anything new in their reports. It's like 24 hour news channel - they just keep saying the same thing over and over.

    Haven't followed gizmodo's site but the whole antenna issue is a REAL problem (which by the way, still continues to develop). A potential huge issue that many happy Apple customers are neglecting to realize.

    I'm one of those happy customers, but never made the pre ordering list thus not a 4 owner just yet. But within the past 24hrs, I'm slowly starting to see the big picture of what this could potentially unfold into.

    The iPhone hurt itself.

    Don't kill the messenger.

    When the EVO had screen problems Giz was first to report it.

    Stop crying about BS.

    Sure, like Apple's prosecuting them wasn't over the top.

    Apple should've known better.

    Couldn't agree more. I removed them from my RSS feed.

    So, if the were better journalists (and I use this term very loosely), they should have ignored the iPhone 4 antenna issue? All the places I frequent, Macrumors, 9to5Mac, and Engaget all ran stories too. Why are you signaling out Gizmodo?

    Gizmodo is being unbiased, they say some iPhone 4 stuff is good some is a massive engineering failure.

    They are just pouting in the corner like children. Honestly, I never liked the attitude of Gizmodo anyway. Same goes for Engadget, I just don't like them.

    Every single item in their RSS feed was iPhone or iPad related upon every release of new Apple product lately but you were OK with that until iPhone 4?

    Yes, prosecuting thieves is absurd.

    I don't think they are trying to "hurt" the iPhone 4, they are just saying what users are reporting. Lets not cry foul here just because the shortcomings are being exposed. A massively produced product like this is bound to have problems. Equally annoying are the blogs that simply praise it and deny anyone is having any problems whatsoever, chalking it up to "user error" or any other excuse they can pull to defend their precious product.

    Apple will work it all out in the end. :)

    You're exaggerating. I'm not. Every item in the last few days! Not most, not a lot, every item! And as I said, they're not saying anything they haven't already said.

    And it's Gizmodo. When they write something negative it's reeks more because of the whole dismantling stolen goods and extortion thing.

    I've read all this and most ofnthe complaints about the new iPhone started within hours of it release. If keeping skin off of a millimeter thick line is all inhale to do to get great reception from the worlds best phone so be it. If dropping my phone 4 times on concrete breaks the glass(which would happen on any phone) then maybe I shouldn't drop it on the concrete.

    I just came from a nexus one and it was made from metal but the screen had a problem cracking in peoples pocket and I'm pretty sure the rest of androids phones have the same problem. The battery lasted a whole 9 hours on a good day. The android market has 1% useful apps and 99% crap. I am pretty sure that android has a great future but right now they are very behind. Blackberry have great business solutions but need a modern phone.

    All this wannabe phone scientist on YouTube are full of it especially when the entire conclusion was done in less than a day.
