How Apple Wants Employees to Deal With The iPhone 4 Antenna Issues

,----[ Quote ]
| The iPhone 4 became the talking subject 
| last week after many devices were 
| reportedly losing signal when gripped in 
| certain ways. There were rumors of Apple 
| updating iOS 4 to try to resolve the issue. 
| However, the update was supposed to be 
| released yesterday. Thus far, the company 
| has just refused to accept thereâs 
| something wrong with the device.
| The Cupertino-based company is so close-
| minded that itâs training its retail store 
| employees to deal with the situation as 
| poorly and terrible as its PR department 
| and even its CEO Steve Jobs have. According 
| to leaked internal troubleshooting 
| procedures, employees are basically told to 
| deny the antenna issues and advise 
| customers to avoid handling the device in 
| ways that cover the black strip on the 
| antenna. Additionally, Apple tells 
| employees to suggest customers to buy a 
| case and to not offer any for free.

| Engadget has dug out, posting the job ads

| 4âs reception issues started getting 
| traction in the media.

| A new system to police privacy abuses by

| Yahoo Inc. and Microsoft Corp. and
| advertising companies like WPP PLC.


Why I Switched from iPhone to Android

,----[ Quote ]
| Ultimately, my reason for switching can be
| summed up thusly: I used to feel that, to
| get the best smartphone software and
| hardware experience, I had to live in
| Apple's walled garden. Now, the walls are
| getting higher, and life outside the garden
| looks better and better. I can get a really
| great smartphone without some company
| telling me I can't switch out the keyboard,
| or the dialer, or the voice mail program,
| or the browser. I can get a world-class
| smartphone without putting up with AT&T's
| spotty network. I don't have to put up with
| supporting a company that enforces its
| restrictive App Store policies in a
| seemingly arbitrary and draconian manner.
| I'm not sure I agree with those who say
| Google has "leapfrogged" Apple in phone
| development, but I certainly think they're
| doing a comparably good job.


Android Fanboys Have Arrived. And Thatâs A Good Thing

,----[ Quote ]
| If youâve ever said anything good about an
| Apple product, youâve likely been called
| one. But a new class of fanboy has emerged
| â one that, amazingly, may be be equally as
| passionate. The Android Fanboy. And itâs
| actually a good thing.
| In case you missed my review of the new HTC
| EVO 4G phone yesterday, be sure to read
| some of the comments. As stated, I was
| coming at it from the perspective of a
| dedicated iPhone user. Long story short, I
| donât really like the device. To the
| Android lovers, I might as well have killed
| Bambi.

Want Android On Your iPhone? Itâs Ready For Download

,----[ Quote ]
| Last month we reported that an
| enterprising young hacker named David Wang
| had managed to successfully port Android
| on to the Apple iPhone. Wang noted the
| release wasnât far away from making his
| work available, just that he needed time
| to clean his code before releasing the
| binaries for public consumption.


Try Out Android on Older iPhones

,----[ Quote ]
| Want to see what all the Android fuss is
| about? You can if you have an older iPhone
| 3G or 2G. 3GS owners need not bother; it
| wonât work yet. For details youâll need to
| head on over to Linux on the iPhone and
| read about the process. There is a version
| of Android that has been hacked to install
| and run on older iPhones.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.10 (GNU/Linux)
