Apple admits bad iPhone Reception; Prosthetic iHand is Created that Also Battles Swine Flu
Is Photoshop at work? Say it ain't so!
The masses waited in day-long lines when the iPhone 4 was released just a few weeks ago, but now after reports that the new iPhone has terrible reception, there are a lot of very unhappy customers.
Even Apple's commented on it, but rather than do something about it, they wrote a letter explaining why there is such bad reception. And as if that weren't enough, they pretty much say everything short of "if you don't like it, too bad, return it." No, wait, they do say that. In their "Letter from Apple," they say,
"As a reminder, if you are not fully satisfied, you can return your
undamaged iPhone to any Apple Retail Store or the online Apple Store
within 30 days of purchase for a full refund."
The guys over at Scoopertino are taking matters into their own hands -- literally. After all, they waited too damn long in the scorching heat for that thing to just give up on it now.
They announced "the iHand" -- the first prosthetic hand that "gives
your new iPhone the reception it deserves." It features Apple's
"unibody design," and it's precision-carved from a single piece of
European beechwood. That makes it lighter than the standard medical
prosthesis, but 12 times stronger. On top of that, it has Swine
flu-proof synthetic product added on. Doesn't that sound fancy?
an added perk, you can pick from 10 skin pigmentations for only $69,
and third-party "skins" for the iHand will be released at the end of
July. With features like additional colorings, beauty marks, scars, and
a "hairy hand" option, you can make the iHand look as exact to your own
hand as you'd like. Just don't expect an extendable middle finger.
You'll have to do that with your own hand.
