    Interesting theory. But i think with the heat that apple is under with looming congressional hearings and class action law suits, the last thing apple needs is the SEC poking around. Im pretty sure intentionally tanking ur stock is a major voilation, frowned upon by the powers that be....

    It's so nice to be able to read 4 pages of comments and happen upon only 1 or 2 fanboys with mostly nothing to say.

    i think this story is false i highly doubt steve would have released a designed flawed product if he knew way prior to release that there was a problem. guess we will see come tomorrow whats what and whats gonna be done about it. hope the white ones wont have any problems as that is what im waiting for

Totally agree with you on the bait n switch angle.

    And before you start i am not 1 of those apple fanboy and i do believe in the reception problem.
    But i do not believe apple and/or steve knew about this problem.

    This problem already and will probably cost apple alot of money and if you had this knowledge beforehand they know it would cost them dearly.

    So again common sense tells me this story is a load of....
    I am an fan boy, but let me clarify, a fan boy knows what is the right thing, as far as apple products goes, I scream if something is not right.

    I bought 3 iPhone 4 and using since then, yes one thing I did before I have received my fedex, I order few cases for iPhone 4 from handheld.com and knock on woods, I have no problem.

    And there will be thousands happy iPhone 4 user, who has No issue.

    Now let me explain what my little brain understand from all this.

    How many people login to their favorite blog site or news site for breaking news until unless bloggers create one. So it is less genuine problem, but made a big freaking jumbo size problem by these news and blog sites.

    But they are not completely lying about it either.

    1.7 million phone in less then 24 hours, that is the core issue and the biggest ever problem for apple rather a milestone achievement.

    Now think yourself how many company on earth will sale 1.7 unit in 24 hrs. NADA,NONE

    And remember it is electronic so i bet some units will have poor component or just some component is not working well enough.
    Now imagine for 1 second, what if apple would have sell these numbers in few month like they did with 1st iPhone,

    I bet there have been no issue. At the end I just wanna say " thank you Apple for making such a wonderful phone which not even make me do calling but now I am able to see my 6 month old on face to face while I forced to travel for business for 2 week"

    Do you remember the Keynote of the Iphone 4? do you remember the bumpers? I really think the bumpers where developed to resolve the antena isssue, It's not a coincidense that they launch this product with the new iphone. Its a shame they did that, but what the hell every fan wants the new iphone and they will buy it including me LOL

    I look at the bright side of this. Steve jobs made a very critical error in judgment. I just hope apple learns their lesson about rushing products into production. Hopefully now we will only get the quality products we expect from apple. I don't like the way they handled the situation, but I'll give everyone a second chance. It's that third one that's hard to get.

    an aesthetically (sp?) pleasing external antenna was/is a great idea in theory. Apple just tanked the execution. Not saying they can't/won't get it right eventually....

    Absolutely. They have no idea how bad their reputation is being weighed all on tomorrow's press event, not to mention their stock.

    They deserve to get sued. If Steve Jobs knew about this, then he should have prolonged the release instead of being an *** and release a faulty product.
