Now that you stood inline for over 12 hours, overnight, at your nearest Apple store, waded through all the other Mac geeks, resigned a 2-year contract, turned over your hard earned cash to two large corporations…you’ve now got your precious iPhone 4 in the palm of your hand… oops…doesn’t work in the palm of your hand. To handle that, here is your pictorial “Idiots Guide to Holding the iPhone 4″:

…deciding on whether or not to get the new iPhone is almost as hard as these.

    This is just to draw hits, and it works…hell I'm here. But the reality is that this whole Iphone 4 reception is a bunch of overblown nonsense from people who love to hate "the man". It was Microsoft, now it's Apple. I have read loads of reviews from tech blogs, PC magazine, G4, etc. I also have a number of friends who have an Iphone 4. ALL OF THEM say the same thing…you have to hold the phone like a gorilla and you MIGHT be able to reproduce this effect to varying degrees. For the vast vast majority of users, they would never experience this. In a year Apple will have sold a few million of these, and nobody will be complaining…cus it's not really that big a deal.

      Nah. Google is enormous, for example, but despite the odd slip-up recently, nobody *hates* them. People hate Apple because they're arrogant assholes that treat their customers like moronic sheep. People hated Microsoft because, like Apple, they like to make dickmoves on a regular basis, pissing their customers off with reckless impunity. Microsoft have recently reaped some of their long-awaited comeuppance and Apple will get theirs too in time.

      It's funny because Apple's whole ethos of 'it just works' and 'perfect industrial design' just got thrown on its head.

      It's stupid industrial design and it doesn't work.

      Of course, most will blame AT&T's crappy service, right?

      AT&T's already got a reputation for dropping calls, and most don't follow the tech news websites to realize the flaw is the root cause.

      OTOH, I'll be holding every other phone as I deem fit since those companies aren't stupid enough to put the antenna where it can be shorted by rain, your finger, etc.

      Btw. how do you hold a phone "like a gorilla"?
