The true problem is Apple's choice to mount the antenna externally, around the perimeter of the phone. That was Apple's fatal mistake.* Furthermore, this controversy is far from over.* What many people fail to understand, yet keep repeating is "stop whining & return it" is not working. In other words they are quitters offering quitters advice. Whereas those of us with the skill & knowledge to know the difference, are not quitting. We are merely trying to get Apple to do the right thing. Personally I know Apple is capable of taking action. They're also very well equipped to take some of their massive reserve of cash, put their money where their mouth is and _prove_ they love their customers as Jobs said yesterday.* The sad fact is Steve Jobs seems to have lost touch with his customers. Under the scrutiny of the media he finds himself swimming upstream. It's not working but he refuses to listen. He's got to be right at all costs. The question remains. Just what will the tariff be on his latest blunder of yesterday?
