Now that enough time has passed for Steve Jobs infamous reality distortion field to dissipate, what do we think about the cold hard “data” that Jobs presented at last Friday's antennagate press conference. It's great that Apple's decided to pass out bumpers and cases to everyone afflicted with poor reception when holding their naked phones, but why didn't Apple see the freight train of negative press called antennagate coming?
If today's bit of iPhone humor looks familiar, don't be surprised, as it's brought to you by the same folks who were behind the iPhone 4 commercial from last month. Again, they've filtered out all of Apple’s BS from their Antennagate coverage. It's great, and exactly what we wanted to hear.
As Robin Scherbatsky once discovered, news outlets in some parts of the world tend to go with some very creative approaches to make their news more exciting Here is a little example from Taiwan, based on Apple's iPhone 4 debacle.
As you can imagine, having your products' weak spots pointed out on stage by Steve Jobs isn't particularly pleasant. Unfortunately, that's what happened to a couple companies yesterday. Because to make its point against the Antennagate, Apple showed that some other smartphones suffer from the death grip issue as well.
Apple has, as predicted, dedicated today's entire surprise press conference to addressing the iPhone 4's antenna issue; aka Antennagate. The world as we know it didn't end. There wasn't any grandiose announcement or dramatic recall. In short, a non-event for a non-issue.
Apple CEO Steve Jobs has kicked off the company's "AntennaGate" Press Conference by reminding critics that the iPhone 4 is the number one Smartphone, and that it's sold three million handsets in three weeks.
Right now we are just a couple minutes away from Apple's special event where Steve Jobs himself (we believe) will teach us how to hold our iPhones correctly. Steve will talk about that, or it could be something else.
As we told you last night, Apple will be holding a press conference tomorrow morning (Friday) at 10am PST concerning the iPhone 4. Secretive as always, Apple simply didn't give any more details about it. So with no USB drive packed with Steve's keynote slides found in a bar this time, we're left with speculation.
