Signal drops

Happens on quite a few phones. My company uses Blackberries. Guess what? Owned two Nokias, guess what. It’s a problem that all phones have.

This is a not as big a deal as the Reg—or others—would like it to be. It’s just that the so-called Jesus phone, aka the Judas phone, has the problem, it’s #1, and so it’s a target for any flaw.

Objectivity is the name of decent journalism. The Reg’s good for a laugh, and sometimes there’s even some decent journalism.

But, ‘Biting the hand that feeds IT’ is its motto, after all. And that states its purpose. Go to ArsTechnica for real tech info.

More venom from the Rag…errrr Reg.

Interesting demo I saw today on a BBC report about technology’s invasiveness and importance. The reporter was using an iPhone 4, holding it in the prescribed manner to lose a signal, but the phone ‘just worked’ like it was supposed to. hummmmm.

Have also read from other sources, perhaps less biased than this one, that the issue is something of a tempest in a teapot which sources like the Reg love to play up to make Apple really look bad.

Well, the Reg’s motto is ‘biting the hand that feeds IT’, so it’s to be expected, I supposed. I’ll look here for a laugh and elsewhere for non-blog, non-baised journalism.
