… makes you sick of them by the end of the week.
Ars technica is reporting that someone has decide to filer a lawsuit against apple over the 3G iPhone. According to the site, Jessica Alena Smith (who hopes to be joined by others to make it a class action suit) filed the suit over the “Defective iPhone 3G,” alleging that the new iPhone’s 3G performance and reliability has been subpar, despite the claims made by Apple’s aggressive marketing campaign.
Now Apple released a ‘bug fix’ the other day - without specifying just WHAT bugs it was meant to fix - but was widely reported to by one that dealt with the issue of 3G dropping etc. I can say from a UK perspective - it didn’t do the trick. My phone still plays the ‘now you see it, now you don’t’ reception trick with 3G activated - and this is with me sat still in one place not roaming around so that it has to find the next base station to pick up a signal. Just yesterday I managed to go from almost a full 3G signal to No Service, by just moving the phone from one hand to the other, whilst sat down.
What with the joke that has been the roll out of mobile me, Apple is doing a very good job of being Microsoft.
