It just looks like more than coincidence that Apple produced its first case EVER for an iPhone that turns out to need a case. Sorry, Steve, but I don't buy the surprise explanation.

]]> By: Dfields Sat, 17 Jul 2010 22:35:57 +0000 I own an earlier version of the iPhone. I was looking forward to upgrading to the iPhone 4 and its spiffy new antenna. But when apple produced a “case” for the phone just designed to cover the antenna, I knew something was wrong. Apple doesn't do cases. It would never promote covering up the iphone4, its most beautiful piece of work to date, unless they knew something wrong with it.

Here's the magic. The most obvious thing in the room is the “antenna” case. The fact that it exists indicates that Apple believes the phone is flawed.

The closer you are to the base station, with the most direct line of sight, the higher the signal quality. This means less chance of 'packets' of data being lost and having to be re-sent. At a low signal strength, the chance of lost packets is high, meaning that more packets have to be re-sent, meaning there is less bandwidth for the next set of packets. A dropped call occurs when there are so many dropped packets that it is impossible to both re-send the dropped ones and send the new ones fast enough…

Isn’t it 1′s and 0′s? you either have enough signal to send and receive data (1) or you don’t (0) – even at 1 bar, you can still talk – and send and receive data…. its not like you hear static when your bars drop

can someone please splain to me what bars are for?
