CNN did a review of 10 top most worst tech fails for the about to end year 2010 and guess who got the top spot. It is none other than the stainless steel iPhone 4 for the unfortunate antennagate issue or the Grip of Death issue, if you like it that way. But is it really the worst tech fail for the current year? We don’t think so. Find out why after the jump.
The third party makers of iPhone 4 cases wouldn’t be happy to read the contents of this post but the fact of the matter is this – rumor has it that Apple has stopped the sales of iPhone 4 slider cases in the fear of the cases causing glassgate (trapped dirt causing scratches and cracks on iPhone 4’s not so strong glass) issue.
Last week, we shared with you the news of Apple facing yet another iPhone 4 design flaw – the glassgate issue. While that news was more or less a rumor, we know have the confirmation of the existence of this weak glass issue and we have the numbers supporting our back.

It seems Apple has found a new way to take the heat off their very own iPhone 4 antenna flaw. What is that?

If there is one thing that has been talked about a lot in the blogosphere ever since 24th June, the date on which the faulty iPhone 4 went live, it is the poor reception flaw of the stainless steel iPhone 4. Consumer Reports in what some might term as a late cameo have confirmed that the antenna problem is real and is hardware related, something which Apple continues to
Well Well Well, look who has finally decided to break the silence about the disappointing iPhone 4 antenna issue. Apple in what can be termed as a late response, has finally acknowledged the existence of the reception issue for the stainless steel phone and has promised to fix it by rolling out an iOS update in the next few weeks.
There is trouble in Apple land as the iPhone 4 problems just keep popping up surprisingly, questioning Steve Jobs tagging of the new iPhone as a brilliant design. According to Macworld, the back camera, the 5 MP one sucks when it comes to capturing photos in low light environment or without LED flash.
With the iPhone 4 antenna flaw gripping the whole blogosphere, I was expecting Hitler to have his say regarding this unfortunate issue and I haven’t been disappointed. Video can be seen after the jump.
