All I can say is you reap what you sow... Steve Jobs deserves this because he's a douchebag.

You tell him to quit dragging his teeth, but he keeps on insisting it's a "non issue". haha

I would like to point out that Steve Jobs is not the douchebag [Ok maybe...] Apple is. Apple has is a money making corporation. I'm not saying that I'm an apple fan, [quite the oposite in fact] I just would like to point out that Steve Jobs was one of the biggest names in the growth of the computing industry. As of late, his company is pissing me off a lot, but don't take it ALL out on poor Steve.

If one of these lawsuits does end up suceeding (something I highly doubt, apple has scary lawyers) - its gonna go like this:

Steve Jobs: "Oh no, we have to pay 100 million dollars to settle this lawsuit?  Dang, guess that means we realease a slightly updated iPod  - or charge $10 for the next Touch/iPhone software patch to make up our losses!"

 

You have to wonder, did Apple forget to field test their product?  Or did they just keep it on a 6 foot pedestal of white granite, cushioned by a silk pillow (embroidered with a picture of Jobs holding hands with Jesus) whilst using a wireless headset?

Dear Apple: Getting sued is proof that you've made it. Welcome to the big time. Enjoy your stay.

What's funny is that engadget has an article posted saying that apple is now acknowledging that there is a problem. A problem with the software and not the antennae. Saying that their calculations on how the phone displays "bars" is all wrong and that they should have used AT&T's method. The bars are showing 4 and 5 bars when it should have been showing 2 or 3 and that dropped calls are because of users being in a non-receptive area.

"Upon investigation, we were stunned to find that the formula we use to calculate how many bars of signal strength to display is totally wrong. Our formula, in many instances, mistakenly displays 2 more bars than it should for a given signal strength. For example, we sometimes display 4 bars when we should be displaying as few as 2 bars. Users observing a drop of several bars when they grip their iPhone in a certain way are most likely in an area with very weak signal strength, but they don't know it because we are erroneously displaying 4 or 5 bars. Their big drop in bars is because their high bars were never real in the first place.

To fix this, we are adopting AT&T's recently recommended formula for calculating how many bars to display for a given signal strength. The real signal strength remains the same, but the iPhone's bars will report it far more accurately, providing users a much better indication of the reception they will get in a given area. We are also making bars 1, 2 and 3 a bit taller so they will be easier to see.

We will issue a free software update within a few weeks that incorporates the corrected formula. Since this mistake has been present since the original iPhone, this software update will also be available for the iPhone 3GS and iPhone 3G."

I can't believe that anyone...ANYONE would believe this. There's so much shit being slung by crapple that I'm starting to smell it here in Florida. This is not a software fix. It's hardware. It doesn't matter how many bars showing, they are dropping calls whether 1 bar or 5 bars show and only when holding it a certain way. I call bullshit to Steve Handjobs and to all the fritters glazing his balls.

I have to PooP!

I do find all of this humerous, but it should be noted that Steve Jobs never said that officially. It was "received in an email" that could have easily been faked. This is true for all of the statements claimed to have been "said by Jobs". The only official statement made by him is the one saying that he never said those things. The only proof they have is an easily forged email header.
