Two years ago when Apple released the iPhone 4, the smartphone was found to have a fatal reception flaw: Antennagate. For a limited time following the iPhone 4 launch, Apple offered buyers a free iPhone bumper or case. If you didn't claim yours, you're entitled to some free cash.
Consider this a PSA: if you haven't claimed your free case for your iPhone 4 yet, you only have until September 30th to do so. Apple is discontinuing its iPhone 4 case program with the claim that the problem is smaller than it previously thought.
After blaming users, besmirching competitors and finally offering a free iPhone 4 case to appease customers, rumor has it that Apple could relent in the biggest way: revising the antenna on the iPhone 4.
It's the start of a new week and we woke up ready to leave this antenna issue behind us. Let the customers handle it how they like, you know? Apple isn't ready for us to let it go. In attacking the Droid X, all they've really done is put the iPhone 4's antenna back in our minds.
Hoo boy! After Apple called out RIM (the makers of Blackberry), HTC and Samsung, the three phone-makers are coming back at the company and coming back strong: "Apple's attempt to draw RIM into Apple's self-made debacle is unacceptable."
