“I think the best outcome is a three-pronged fix:
- A slightly-revamped iPhone 4 with a clear coating on the steel band.
- A free Bumper — or unit replacement — for any phones that display the issue. Since every phone doesn’t exhibit the problem, this wouldn’t be a full-blown recall.
- The software update promised a few weeks ago will still be pushed out, but with a statement from Apple that it cannot fix the issue on its own.
Anything less than this, and Apple is going to look like they are trying to cover something up. Apple has to be completely honest and open with the public. Anything less with only further damage the brand.”
I totally agree with Stephen here. I don’t think this is as bad as Microsoft’s Kevin Turner is making out to be: “It looks like the iPhone 4 might be their Vista, and I’m okay with that”. Honestly, and call me an apologist if you want but I have a feeling Apple will simply open up, make their peace and then we can all move on to why an All-Star game was held on a Tuesday or what the hell we are going to do about the Thesis WordPress theme.
