I wonder if Shantanu Narayen has one?
The email would go...'Dear Steve, and YOU said that you wouldn't let Flash apps run on the iPhone because it is too Buggie, thanks for making me smile...'

[citation][nom]rsud[/nom][citation][nom]omnimodis78[/nom] ....Maybe Apple should release a diagram showing the proper way of holding a phone... ... just imagine if I wrote Honda to say that my shift stick doesn't work and they replied "Just don't hold it that way then." ...citation]your equivalent example isn't. Moron....[/citation]
For someone who can't even figure out how to use the quotation feature on this forum, you sure have a balls for calling me and others morons. Sorry if my anaolgy didn't please you oh Exalted One! Super sorry... but at least I have a phone that works, regardless of how I hold it :)

Do they have anything relating/concerning this issue in the manual/guide? If not, then can't they be sued? for intentionally selling a flawed product.

Steve Jobs is a super arrogant *Censored*.

Claims that innovation is so important, well, lol, he innovated a way to make one of the most expensive phones available absolutely useless. I couldnt have done it better myself.

So when your significant other calls you and asks where you were last night? They'll never know considering, you'll get tense, grip the phone like there's no tomorrow and boom! Call dropped; problem solved. Why would you ever need to look at porn on your iPhone 4 when Apple has included this new "revolutionary" feature. /Sarcasm

Today I went to the Apple store, and I hear certain people saying about the iphone4, "This is a very nice phone." "Screen is more clear", etc. I played around 6 iphone4. That's right, SIX iphones. I was holding them and I can see the reception is dropping until zero. I also made a phone call with my dad, and I can hear him, but he can't hear me.

There is an awful lot of droid users on here claiming how awesome it is.. shove it cuz it really isnt "that" great. It doesnt do everything you want and it isnt as smooth. Google should take the uniform aspect of steve jobs and apple and maybe they can catch up. I have a droid and a iphone 4 now.. and as always.. apple products are smoother.. simpler.. easier to use.. and can DO just as much. Jailbreak or not.. droid users just "root" their phone. This is a stupid mistake thou.. and it only completely loses signal if you have quite a tight grip on the spot.. normal use and grip and your fine.. I love my iphone.. I love my droid.. but if i had to drop one.. it would be droid hands down.. ATT is awesome in dallas :)

[citation][nom]rsud[/nom]ah, when I hold my glass of coke upside down the coke spills all over the floor and me. Stupid glass design.[/citation]

I cannot believe anyone can think this is a valid analogy. The only way this would be valid is if people always held their glass of coke upside down without the coke spilling all over the floor, but then the design of the glass was changed so that holding it upside down now caused the coke to spill over.

I'm going to be nice an just assume you're an Apple fanboy and not as complete an idiot as your post suggests.

Funny. My imported SHARP SH-06A, running off a single 2G 1900MHz band has perfect reception whatever way I hold it.

So this basically means that Apple engineers can't even beat a single-band phone?
