    Apple hiring iPhone antenna engineers for some reason

    By Thomas Ricker [​IMG] posted Jun 30th 2010 6:25AM

    Three Apple job postings for iPhone / iPad antenna engineers to "Define and implement antenna system architecture to optimize the radiation performance for wireless portable devices." All three were posted on June 23rd, the same day that we started seeing widespread reporting of the left-handed reception issues. Coincidence?

    I would imagine that those fellows might not survive the end of the year at apple. That design was flawed from the beginning, there is NOTHING in my mind that doesn't think they knew about this before release. Something like that doesn't just... show up after how many people tested it before it went live?

    The solution that apple has come up with?

    Maybe they are just more concerned with how it looks then how it operates..

    $19,500 Diamond iPhone 4 Comes With Free Ostrich Feet Case

    [​IMG]


    The iPhone 4G Diamond Edition. Decorated with real diamonds. It costs $19,500—but comes with a free case made from ostrich feet. Such a great value. [Stuart Hughes]

    "The diamonds are messin with my reception mannnn..."

    I feel bad for the ostrich..

    If you looking at this and scratching your head, then you are not qualified lol.
    I think I would not last too long because i would refuse to get rid of my droid. That can not be negotiated with me lol. When asked why I do not have an iphone, I will tell Steve Jobs (or who ever the boss is at that location) "Its restrictive, it does not allow flash, its on at&t, the ip4 can not even do near as much as my droid and it was just released, and obviously you guys are having reception issues. So I would prefer not to buy a hi-end device with reception issues on an already poor 3g network of at&t".
