An interesting quote from the EE Times newsletter:
Uh-oh. All is not well in Apple World. Users of iPhone 4 are experiencing reception problems that at least one analyst attributes to Apple's novel use of the smartphone's frame as an antenna.
A design flaw of this magnitude might pose a huge problem for other companies, but not Apple. The throngs of Apple Nation will likely brush it off, hold their phone in the manner prescribed by their Supreme Leader and get back to downloading apps like Sexy Girl Talk and showing off their photos to random strangers they meet on the train.
