    Did anyone hear a rumor that there were some defects with the a bunch of Iphones? I am not sure it is true but i heard there may be a recall.

    Although I hope this is not true.. I hate to see Apple putting so much faith into just one product.. My apple stock is falling!!

    So they're recalling a phone that doesn't even get released for 4 weeks?

    Go somewhere else to spread your FUD troll. :rolleyes:

    Apple stock price is still over twice what it was 2 years ago so it's hardly a major cause for concern. Although, if someone wanted to short Apple stocks, creating a false rumor about delays / other stock problems with the new 3G iPhone is possibly a way to cause prices to drop sufficiently to make a lot of money...

    Actually, in the modern era one person can certainly make a stock price fall if they try hard enough, as happened around this time last year on Apple's stock - http://www.afterdawn.com/news/archive/9736.cfm

    As you say…

    And no, paranoia has little to do with this.

    Sorry, i was referring to the previous generations Iphone... not the new one. I thought that was obvious because the new one is not out yet.

    There was never a recall (I think) but some people were unhappy with their screens…

    I didnt mean to startle everyone, or piss anyone off. Just wondering if anyone else heard the same. I will leave these rumors in the office next time.
    Cheers,

    like the above poster said, aapl stock prices aren't really falling hard, considering it's twice as high as it was a year ago. an extended period of growth almost always slumps after a while (that's what she said!)

    I just came back... wow you guys are pretty sensitive about asking questions. I am a huge apple supporter. I just bought my second notebook and have converted dozens of people to apple users as well as converted 2 small companies that i work with to Apple. I am suppose to be buying a 1st gen iphone soon and wanted to see if what i was hearing is true. I am also on the market so it is very important to me... A simple i have never heard that would be suffice.
