I dont see a rise in price for their stock on friday but yet more of the same. Dont be surprised to see a bullish run come monday morning though..........Apple's stock will be a bumpy road as we proceed thru the rest of the year and see how all of their congressional hearing and class action lawsuit threats unfold along with their iPhone 4 debacle (which I still think they were forced to release early which is why they had production issues and design flaws resulting from the production phase).

    Not on the scale of the Banks or BP oil but yet another large corporation willingly turning a blind eye at the expense of their customers. This will be interesting because Apple is not an absolute necessity to our way of life like the other two.

    Yeah, come to think of it... that is pretty random for Apple to suddenly make a "case/bumper" for their iPhone. And then push the bumpers during the keynote as much as they did? Then again, the iPad case was available at launch... who knows. Either Apple is realizing the market for cases, or they are not makin' em like they used to.

    I mean come on, did you guys not see this problem when he was announcing the phone when he was comparing the 3GS vs. 4 and the 3GS was dominating? My first thought was hmm interesting it might be the engineering.

    A week later the news are saying to hold your phone another way... or buy a bumper.

    I went to the apple store on 5th avenue in Manhattan in NY and Roosevelt Field Mall in Long Island NY and the employees told me that white iphone4 was delayed because it had design issues. This was said before the antenna issue came into light. The company knew about it but it was all a corporate strategy. How corporate strategies work, watch an Indian movie called "Corporate" You will know how companies keep you in dark. Make sure you get the one with subtitles lolz!!!

    Were all looking at tomorrow the wrong way. What better way to jump on Ophra's bandwagon about being on the phone while driving. Maybe he will spin this and start making commercials stating this is truly the first hands free devise available. Use your hands and it won't have reception.

    It's hard to imagine that Apple would not know about the antenna issue, early in the design phase. Even a non-electical engineer knows that when you touch the antenna of anything the signal is affected.

    They probably have rolls of "iDuct-Tape" ready to deploy for just such an emergency.

    please fix original post to say PDT, not PST

    it's Pacific Daylight Time right now, not Standard

    Note that during summer daylight saving time/summer time is observed, and PDT is used instead.
    PST – Pacific Standard Time



    or just say PT (pacific Time)
    you can see in the original link that they also just say PT lol

    I haven't done so. I was waiting for the white version to be released and now that all of this is out. I don't see myself buying a new iphone to replace my 3GS until its properly fixed. Not only can all the guys running iphone4's not make calls but, they also have no jailbreak.

    No bitesms, no sbsettings, no winterboard, no thankyou.

    like I said in another thread apple wanted to capitalise on the issue by getting everybody to buy a bumper, I'm happy it's backfired
