So the ‘net is all a-buzz about the new iPhone4. AT&T stores are swamped this morning (seriously, I saw a line outside one as I drove into the office) as rumors circulate that new shipments of the phones have arrived. Well, maybe. Maybe the lines are to address some of the concerns that are mounting regarding the new phone. First, let me be clear – this version of the iPhone was dramatically overhauled including the hardware, enclosure, firmware and operating system. Anytime a company tackles changes of that breadth, there are bound to be problems – both perceived and real. However, there seems to be a serious flaw with the radio reception.
The response from the CEO and others at Apple has been, “you’re holding it wrong.” Now, some devices do recommend correct handling, but the incorrect positioning that is causing the issues seems a natural one that Apple should have considered in testing. In fact, people have caught Steve Jobs and Apple advertisments incorrectly holding the phone. Unfortunately, this would appear to be a crucial design flaw at the hardware level. Hopefully, Apple will come up with some solution because the Droid phones continue to nip at their heels in the market.
GorT is an eight-foot-tall robot from the 51ˢᵗ Century who routinely time-travels to steal expensive technology from the future and return it to the past for retroinvention. The profits from this pay all the Gormogons’ bills, including subsidizing this website. Some of the products he has introduced from the future include oven mitts, the Guinness widget, Oxy-Clean, and Dr. Pepper. Due to his immense cybernetic brain, GorT is able to produce a post in 0.023 seconds and research it in even less time. Only ’Puter spends less time on research. GorT speaks entirely in zeros and ones, but occasionally throws in a ڭ to annoy the Volgi. He is a massive proponent of science, technology, and energy development, and enjoys nothing more than taking the Czar’s more interesting scientific theories, going into the past, publishing them as his own, and then returning to take credit for them. He is the only Gormogon who is capable of doing math. Possessed of incredible strength, he understands the awesome responsibility that follows and only uses it to hurt people.
