Can You Hear Me Now

It was funny watching 4G users attempting to follow Apple's original antenna "fix." This involved awkwardly cradling the iPhone in their hand (sorta like a tripod) while making calls. HA!

Apple's iPhone Mea Culpa: We're 'Totally Wrong'

For two weeks, Apple dismissed rumors of a faulty antenna in the new iPhone 4 as nothing more than scuttlebutt. Any phone has these problems, Apple officials said. Buy a case to fix it.

Friday, Apple came clean: The antenna works just fine. But the software that displays signal strenth doesn't. The company has been using a faulty formula to determine signal strength in its phones for years.

"Upon investigation, we were stunned to find that the formula we use to calculate how many bars of signal strength to display is totally wrong," Apple said in a letter from two executives posted on its website Friday morning.
