doesn't appear to be giving up any ground on the issues
surrounding reception with itshot-selling
iPhone 4. Many have reported issues with the phone losing bars
(which leads to dropped calls and neutered internet speeds) with
posting on YouTube to voice their frustrations.
Jobs first suggested that users need to adjust the way they hold the
phone to improve reception and Apple later released an official
statement which noted that all phones can suffer from reception
Genius Report has
secured an internal Apple memo which
describes to Apple Store employees how to deal with customers that
come in with problems. In typical Apple fashion, the memo starts off
by praising the iPhone 4, stating, "The iPhone 4’s wireless
performance is the best we have ever shipped. Our testing shows that
iPhone 4’s overall antenna performance is better than iPhone 3GS."
memo goes on to say that, "If you are experiencing this on your
iPhone 4, avoid covering the black strip in the lower-left corner of
the metal band." The problem with that suggestion is that for
many people who hold their phone in their left hand, your palm

memo also notes that no warranty work will be performed for iPhone
4's that are afflicted with reception problems and echoes earlier
statements that customers should use a case to alleviate the problem.
customers hoping to get a free case out as a result of these

Its popularity bootstrapped the entire computer game and educational software markets and began the boom in the word processor and computer printer markets. The first microcomputer "killer app" for business was VisiCalc, the earliest spreadsheet, and it ran first on the Apple II; many businesses bought Apple II's just to run VisiCalc, because it was the only spreadsheet available at the time. Apple's success in the home market inspired competitive home computers such as the VIC-20 (1980) and Commodore 64 (1982, with estimated sales between 17 and 25 million units). Through their significantly lower price point, these models introduced the computer to several tens of millions more home users. The success of the Apple II in business spurred IBM to create the IBM PC
