    News of the day seems to be a series of job postings at Apple – no less than eight – for antenna engineers. Posted on June 23rd, the day before the launch of iPhone IV (or, 4, if you’re not into epic things), the postings raise some suspicion about the alleged signal failure problem, and whether or not Apple might have suspected something was up with the device before it hit the market – or at least after the flood of signal complaints on the afternoon of the 23rd.

    Whatever the case, Apple isn’t prepared to dick around. Applicants “will be expected to performance radiation performance measurements, create test plans, execute them, publish test reports, provide feedback to the other design engineers, and lead some of the manufacturing of antenna.” How many years of experience? X. Sorry, that’s 10. You’d better have made a goddamn career out of antenna engineering if you wanna help Apple solve this issue – an issue Apple continues to claim doesn’t exist. “We ARE NOT appeasing customers with free bumpers,” instructs a leaked procedure list for AppleCare representatives. But even if they’re lying, it’s good to see they’re doing something about it. In the background. Secret style. Ninja stuff.

    Seriously, does anyone ever search before posting? Or even read the front page?

    Maybe it's time the mods started doing their job instead of nit picking posts out of threads. They say it's against the rules to post multiple threads about the same issue yet do nothing. Wake up mods and do your job.
