Apple iPhone 4 antenna problem “software glitch”, according to Apple

Okay, so apparently the antenna glitch with the iPhone 4 is not actually a hardware glitch (or, rather, not ENTIRELY a hardware glitch) at all but rather a software glitch which is showing your signal as too strong; they apparently screwed up the formula for it. They’re working on an update now.

Of course, this sort of belies the fact that Apple thinks we’re all idiots and we actually believe a software update can somehow fix a hardware-related problem. Let’s get this straight: the “death grip” on the iPhone 4 is real, whether or not the screen is showing the correct number of bars.

They ought to be giving a free bumper out to every iPhone 4 customer. I’m waiting for the one I paid for to be shipped, still.
