    John gruber on tomorrows apple conferance... I definitely knows something we don't

    "MG Siegler:

    My sense is that the main idea behind this event is to get a bunch of big publications and other key Apple influencers into a room to go over the iPhone 4 antenna issue once and for all. I have little doubt that Apple CEO Steve Jobs himself will be leading this discussion, with other Apple executives talking as well. I also suspect we may see some antenna and wireless industry experts to offer their insights as well.

    I was thinking the same thing yesterday, but I now have a hunch it’s going to be more — maybe a lot more — than just a defense of the iPhone 4 antenna. Sounds crazy, I know, but I think something big, or at least biggish, is going down tomorrow. This is not one of those “hunches” I get where I actually know something and play coy; I could be wrong and the thing could wind up just being 20 minutes of Steve Jobs telling us “not to hold it that way, or buy a case”. I’m betting on my hunch, though, and flying out late tonight."

    He is so vaque, that I have no clue what the hell it could be, but if he's using the word big.... I think it will surprise a lot of us.

    He's being vague so if something else happens he can say 'I told you so'.

    Steve Jobs is going to announce that AT&T will start boosting the transmission power at each of their towers by 4x so you can hold the iPhone4 however the F&#@ you want.

    I like John Gruber's site and try to get to it daily, but I really don't think he knows much about what's happening tomorrow. He even admits that he just has a hunch.

    iPhone 4.5 :)

    This is going to be the most interesting Apple press conference ever in my opinion. Nobody REALLY has a clue what Apple's response will be..
    At this point it's all up in the air!

    They're going to blame it all on AT&T and break exclusivity... ;)

    Lets just wait

    It would be nice to see something big coming tomorrow, but I really don't think something big is going on.

    Aside from the recall of the phones, the only other big thing would be that Steve Jobs announces his retirement.

    I think they'll announce that 4.1 fixed the problem, that they are sorry, and FREE bumpers for everyone.
