He’s ‘fixed’ the iPhone 4 death grip problem without having to issue a recall.
“Apple fans must be ecstatic”, emails p2pnet regular Andrew AKA Comeoncomcast, linking to a Big Pond story.
In the wake of passionate Apple denials that the iPhone 4 even has an antenna failing that causes serious reception problems, the company is promising what amounts to an iPhone 4 condom ‘free’ to users who disagree.
“The more than 3 million people who have bought the iPhone 4 and new buyers through September 30 will all be eligible”, says the story.
“In our reporting and a video … we made the point that the signal drop that iPhone 4 customers have observed when they hold their phones the “wrong” way is real — and we’ve called on Apple to do something about it”, said Consumer Reports.
Now “The more than 3 million people who have bought the iPhone 4 and new buyers through September 30 will all be eligible” for iPhone 4 protective cases says Big Pond .
Not only but also, anyone who wasted the $US29 ($A32.80) on ‘Bumper’ cases will get their money back, it adds.
