все уже видели, конечно, замечательный ответ Apple на проблемы с качеством приема в их телефоне — отмечу просто для коллекции:

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.


We will issue a free software update within a few weeks that incorporates the corrected formula. Since this mistake has been present since the original iPhone, this software update will also be available for the iPhone 3GS and iPhone 3G.

иными словами, даже если у вас и в самом деле пропадает связь[1], то теперь вы больше не будете переживать из-за этого. напоминает известный анекдот, не правда ли?

ну да, заметка фальшивого зайца Стива была как раз об этом:

So some guy says his iPhone 4 is having reception issues. I say there is no reception issue. Now it’s his reality against my reality. Which one of us is living in the real reality?

There’s a two-part answer: 1, there is no real reality, and 2, it doesn’t matter.

The only thing that matters is which reality our customers will choose to adopt as their own.

Of course most people would rather live in a reality where everything works and there are no problems. And now, thanks to me, that reality exists. Because I’ve created that reality for them.


Which brings me back to iPhone 4 and the antenna issue. Right now you’re confused. You’re worried. You don’t know what to believe. You just wish someone would come along and tell you that everything is squared away and there’s nothing to worry about.
