    No, it will be a "whatever we say it the word of God" conference.

    Considering the number of iPhones sold, a recall is completely out of the question. Customers will get a freebie low value item or two in compensation, but they're going to be stuck with these crappy phones forever.

    Hah, I just read the news about Apple's conference. EfrainMan was right: everyone gets a free bumper case to protect their faulty iPhone 4. Yeehaw.

    I think it is somewhere in the middle. Like the sound of a sigh.

    I just can't imagine how it went through testing. They can't be evil enough to release it on purpose like this.

    They can't? Why? They can get away with anything and people would still buy their products......

    Re: Apple to brief on iPhone 4 issues

    How much is a basic case? 5-10 dollars?
    How many iphones were they expected to sell? 5-10 million? Thus make up to 100 million extra. Or, risk a backlash and not reach that number of phones sold and lose way way more money.
    I can't believe they would be so stupid to do it on purpose.

    This deals a big and heavy blow to Apple's reputation for making quality, well built products. Even I liked their iPod. (I've had 2 in the past)

    Re: Apple to brief on iPhone 4 issues

    I've said it a thousand times and it gets truer every time i say it; Apple are beginning to get sloppy, They can lean on their reputation and it won't budge anymore. Henceforth, Apple can now release shitty products and not even bothering trying to fix them and they will still sell like hotcakes.

    Re: Apple to brief on iPhone 4 issues

    I will say what I have said from the beginning. Steve Jobs doesn't care about customers. He never has and he never will. I'm just sort of glad that people are finally wising up to the simple fact that Apple products are great....until something major is wrong with them and then you are screwed. Apple has never been good about taking care of things when they break, they just maintain that their stuff is perfect and that it is user error all the time.

    Oddly enough, I have never had a single call drop on my iPhone 3Gs but it is the last iPhone I will ever have. Not because of the performance mind you but because of Apple as a company. The way they treat people that jailbreak their phones (because IMO they are a terrible device stock) is ridiculous and I won't stand for it any longer.

    Perhaps people who are solely devoted to Apple products will begin to wake up with this little wrench in the works.

    Re: Apple to brief on iPhone 4 issues

    I will play devil's advocate here, but which company does what it does because it wants its customers to be happy? Let's not attack Apple just to attack them. Is Sony better? Dell? IBM? Toshiba? etc.

    Toshiba's are certainly more durable.
