Is your iPhone 4 dropping calls? Steve says stop holding it like that.
Well, I’m sorry Steve, but I’m left handed. I was born like that. As much as you like to think that everyone on the planet holds your phone with a right hand, you’d probably be shocked to know that a small population doesn’t fit your mould. But, given that four out of the five original Macintosh designers were left-handed, I’d think that you’d be a little more inclined to the plight of the left-handers.
What if Apple didn’t decide to create those bumpers for no reason. They knew they had a problem on their hands, and since Gizmodo went and ruined a release for everyone, Apple’s hands were tied. An announcement had to be made, and a half-designed device made it to production. Insert your favourite golf clap here.
Some would argue that i’m being a little bit paranoid, but it really has given me a reason to pause and think about it. Wanna buy our phone? Well, you should probably buy this crappy rubber as well so that it works.
I think Apple Inc just made my decision for me — I’ll be waiting for the next model.
I also find it hilarious that all the A-List reviewers who got their hands on one of these phones didn’t notice a problem at all. I say hilarious. You might say curious—tomato, toe-mat-o.
What’s the official word from Apple? It’s “a fact of life for every wireless phone,” and users should “avoid gripping it in the lower left corner in a way that covers both sides of the black strip in the metal band, or simply use one of many available cases.” Classic.
Next up the iPhone 5. “Want to make a call? Step right into our reality distortion field first.”
