    Today was the day that Apple addressed the world regarding the iPhone 4's antenna problems. But before they jumped into what really mattered, we got a nice little lecture on how great the iPhone 4 has been selling so far -- a nice gesture if this would have been a regular keynote. But considering the issue at hand, it was annoying to say the least. Just get on with the answers Steve. On that note...the answers. Essentially, Apple went ahead and showed the same death grip = signal loss on ...
  • Samsung Vibrant experiencing iPhone 4-like signal attenuation. Death Grip strikes again?

    With the drama surrounding the iPhone 4 and it's glaring signal problems, the world at large has become a bit more paranoid it seems. I mean, why else would people randomly start death gripping (could this become a new verb?) their phones to see if it exhibited the same signal slaying losses the iPhone 4 experiences. Fear motivates folks. With that said, a growing number of people are raising their voice over a slight signal issue affecting the Samsung Vibrant. Apparently, putting the deat...
  • iOS 4.1 seeded to devs. Shocker: Apple’s software patch won’t fix hardware related signal problem.

    The day many an iPhone 4 user has been waiting for -- update day. Well, it's not technically available to the general public. Apple is pushing out iOS 4.1 to devs as we speak, which includes the highly debated software fix for the iPhone 4's signal display. How does it affect that hardware side of things? Shocker: It doesn't do a single thing for the hardware related signal problem. Have a look at the video inside and see that the bars still drop. Yeah, the person is in a low signal ...
  • Sleek Exogear iPhone 4 case aims to double iPhone 4 battery life.

    iPhone's of years past weren't exactly energizer bunnies when it came to long runtime. Unless you were what Apple or AT&T; would call a "common" user, getting a full day getting anything more than 6-8 hours required a top-up at an outlet or battery addon of some sort. The iPhone 4 has mostly remedied those problems as it features a fairly heftier battery than iPhone's of yesteryear combined with even more frugal hardware and optimized software. Still, power users may want more. The Exogear ...
  • The true iPhone 4 antenna fix: The iHand

    While Apple goes about pulling a cover over iPhone 4 users' eyes in regards to the antenna issue, real people with real solutions are stepping forward and going where Apple fails to go -- the truth. Introducing, the iHand. Made out of authentic European beechwood, the iHand will stop that pesky signal attenuation from occurring when your mammally mitts wrap their greasy bits around it's finely contoured bottom. And worry not dear reader, for the makers of the iHand have taken all colors of ...
  • A small beacon of truth for iPhone 4 reception issues.

    Plenty of uproar has been expelled at the expense of iPhone 4 reception issues (among others). While there has been plenty to suggest that it is purely a hardware or software issue, AandTech just published their own review of the iPhone 4, paying special, almost anal attention to the reception topic that's dominated conversation. The results are rather intriguing, though still leave room for some worry. Specifically, the iPhone 4 signal meter has a solid -40db spread from 5 bars down to 4 bar...
  • “Avoid holding it that way” — That’s the best Apple can muster regarding iPhone 4 signal issues.
    by Mike
    Posted June 24th, 2010 at 9:36 pm
    It's no secret that the iPhone 4 is having a little problem when it comes to hand position and signal quality. To be fair however, any phone regardless of make will have some signal attenuation when held in certain positions. It's unavoidable. But in my experience using over 12 different devices over the course of 4 years, I've never had attenuation so bad as going from 5 bars all the way down to 1 or 0. Perhaps the biggest slap in the face to the millions of people who just shelled out $200...
  • Colorblind drivers rejoice: The Uni-Light
    by Mike
    Posted June 18th, 2010 at 10:08 am
    Do you have yourself a faulty pair of eye balls that simply refuse to distinguish certain or all colors? I can certainly understand how such things would put a few monkey wrenches in your daily routine, especially considering that stop lights in particular rely on colors to get their message across -- a very important message that is. But there is hope for color absent people -- the Uni-Light. Besides having normal colors for not so color blind people, the Uni-Light features shapes in add...
  • [Update] Evo 4G suffering from flaky WiFi reception issues…
    by Mike
    Posted June 10th, 2010 at 6:45 am
    There's plenty to love about Sprint's new HTC EVO 4G. With so much advanced hardware packed under the hood and not forgetting that gorgeous screen, it's hard to think anyone could find fault with the EVO 4G. However, there is one issue that is starting to gain quite a vocal following regarding the EVO's apparent lack of WiFi reception. Just in one forum on Android Central alone, you can read through hundreds of upset users, upset that the EVO 4G's WiFi reception is considerably lower than s...

    From the department of "Where have we heard this before"... Users fortunately enough to swaddle a nice and sleek Nexus One each and every night for the last several days/weeks have probably experienced at least once the 3G problems plaguing the uber Google phones. Almost right of the bat early adopters were crying out over the phone's poor 3G reception and performance. I mean, it makes sense. If other T-Mo 3G phones are going about their business as usual with the N1 the only slacker, it w...
  • LED shortcoming: Traffic lights in Chicago not hot enough to melt snow build up. Accidents on the rise.
    by Mike
    Posted December 16th, 2009 at 8:52 am
    Energy efficient traffic lights seem like one of the best ways to save local governments significant amounts of money of the course of 5, 10, or more years. The lights which often use LED technology are much less demanding on the power grid which in turn means more money for other things. But there's one side effect many have overlooked. Heat output. Remember, the higher the heat output of a light, the more energy is being wasted. That's all fie and dandy for indoor lighting or lighting ...

    Do you wear tin foil hats often? Sacred that every single time you cross into a wireless field of some sort you're losing precious brain cells to an invisible thief? Well, there isn't much you can do about those "other" wireless signals, but, if you want to do something about the radiation coming from your own iPhone, Pong Research has just the case for you. While the dangers of cell phone radiation keep getting confused between terms such as "possible" and "probable" (mountain of difference)...
