    Apple deleting mentions of Consumer Reports' iPhone 4 piece on forums, can't delete your thoughts

    ...or can they? In case Apple has somehow managed to perfect the art of selective disremembrance across a wide population, here's a refresher: Consumer Reports has thrown down the gauntlet, stating that it "can't recommend" the iPhone 4 until the antenna issues are fixed, issues that its labs and ours have verified quite substantially. Apple apparently isn't happy about that, and has taken to deleting threads about the Consumer Reports article from its support forums. Now, Apple deleting threads from its support forums is nothing new; outside of "regular" moderation, the company routinely deletes discussion of hardware flaws that it's not ready to 'fess up to, or just generally negative lines of thought about its products. Good thing the internet's a big place, and if Apple's not going to admit the antenna issue, there are plenty of ways to gripe about it. Feel free to express yourself in the comments below, for instance!





    Wow - Steviepookins doesn't like the review so noone is allowed to see it lol

    Thanks for the Apple Update. Had it not been for this ANDROID site i wouldnt have seen this update.

    Oh and if your not happy with your iPhone you can return it, If you dont have one then I guess you cant complain about a Issue you dont have.

    You do realize that owning an iphone, and commenting here is the same thing, correct? lol It's in the non android smartphones area so go back to fanboi.com or idontblameappleiblameusers.com and tell them how mean we are. :) Have them call us from their iphone4 to tell us how great the device is. Make sure they are right handed, not in between large buildings. Have a fantastic day.

    Anyone see that commercial for the new iPhone where the guy is video-chatting with his girlfriend and she got a short haircut... he is BLANTENTLY holding the phone in his left hand with the corner snug against his skin. Why the hell would their marketing team so that? Doesn't it drop signal in like a few seconds?!?!

    Looks like this is your first forum huh? Well let me be the first to explain that just because a forum is dedicated to a certain operating system or company does not mean we can't discuss other operating systems or companies. If you can't handle that, you probably won't enjoy your time here.
