Apple`s Steve Jobs admits iPhone 4 is flawed

TECHNOLOGY - When the iPhone 4 was being designed and sent to production Apple’s senior antenna expert warned CEO Steve Jobs of a potential problem with reception, but Steve Jobs ignored it.

After all, iPhone customers are so loyal they will buy any piece of crappy technology as long as it has the Apple logo on it.

The leak comes as Apple is facing a public relations nightmare, with Steve Jobs admitting the Apple iPhone 4 is not perfect and insisting there are other cellphones on the market with the same or similar problem.

Maybe so Steve, but when people pay $299 USD for an iPhone 4 with 32 GB of space, high resolution camera, multi-touch, video recording, etc... they expect the product to actually work when they phone someone or use the internet.

Other SmartPhones do not have this problem.

Apple’s senior antenna expert Ruben Caballero brought up the possibility of dropped calls in early design meetings but was overruled by Steve Jobs who insisted the problem wasn`t a big deal. Steve Jobs is now insisting that meeting never took place and that warnings that the design was flawed is a complete crock.

So is he saying he didn`t know about the problem and is incompetent or is he just plain lying in an effort to stocks high... Apple stocks have dropped in value $24 USD in the last month.

This has upset investors who now believe Steve Jobs ignored the problem and then tried to cover up the flaws with the iPhone 4 and was so focused on `making a quick buck` off enthusiastic Apple customers (who, like we`ve said before, will buy any crap with an Apple logo on it) that he didn`t care whether there was flaws with the product.

Meanwhile Apple is now offering a full refund for people who return their iPhone 4 or a free case (a bandage solution) for people who decide to keep it.

Our advice is to return the damn thing and wait for the iPhone 5 to come out. Maybe then they will have realized honesty is the best policy and covering up faulty antennas is bad for business. That or you could buy a different SmartPhone that works.

Consumer Reports magazine has refused to endorse the iPhone 4, having conducted a battery of tests that reveal the product loses reception when it is held in the bottom left corner. The problem can be solved using a case or if users are careful to not touch that part of the phone. Some people may be willing to do that, but will probably feel like idiots all the time for buying such a crappy product.

"Woe to he who ignores the advice of his own engineers."
