Here's a pragmatic viewpoint. Apple HAVE fucked up. The Apple haters are quite rightly having a field day with it.
Despite this I have yet to drop a call on mine despite phoning from some pretty poor reception areas. So whatever the lab tests say- in my hands (literally [and they're quite big ])- it's simply not a problem.
So in real terms it's all a bit "meh" and really.
The most interesting thing about it is the intensity of the debate it's produced.
The whole thing is a huge storm in a teacup. Or maybe a smallish bucket, but still. The world continues to turn.
I'd be more concerned over the drop of data rates that a crapped out signal will give than dropping calls, but I'm weird like that..
Pretty much like this Apple press release:
It's not a case of Apple haters having a field day as people pissed off with Apple's self righteousness over the years laughing at the feet of clay.
But I thought the whole press conference thing was pretty good for them. It seems to have appeased the public and the press, just not a few people on here
It just surprises me that people who don't even use Apple stuff get so worked up about Jobs/Apple. But I suppose I did tinker with Linux a few years ago in a half-hearted attempt to stick 2 fingers up at Bill Gates so I guess it's just an inherent human trait to hate anyone who is hideously successful.
