EVO Mash Up
Ok, I admit it, I'm getting a little too much joy out of posting this article.  We're all aware of the issues that have been reported by users of the iPhone 4, in particular the problem of holding the phone a certain way causing the signal to drop substantially.  Well, it looks like, according to some pretty cool testing facilities that Consumer Reports has, that the issue isn't quite as insignificant as Apple would have us believe.

From the article which is linked to above:
Our findings call into question the recent claim by Apple that the iPhone 4's signal-strength issues were largely an optical illusion caused by faulty software that "mistakenly displays 2 more bars than it should for a given signal strength."

The tests also indicate that AT&T's network might not be the primary suspect in the iPhone 4's much-reported signal woes.

They go on to recommend to users that they place a strip of duct tape over the side of the phone to prevent shorting out the antenna.  Won't those iPhone users look so cool with their brand new phone all taped up! Even more to the point, it essentially calls out Apple on their outlandish claim that the signal drop was simply a software issue.  Nice try, fruity.
