    iPhone 4 Announcement at 18:00 (GMT) Today

    It seems Apple want to say something to all of you iPhone 4 users out there: BBC News - Apple plans surprise briefing on iPhone 4 antenna issue

    'Sorry', perhaps?

    No, it's probably more along the lines of, "So long, suckerz, we've got your ca$h!"....

    The will recall the iphone, and then you'll have to pay full price for the replacement as demand is so high!

    More likely a free rubber glove and a pair of flip-flops?

    What's the saying ? - 'Style Over Substance'

    The manner in which an argument (or arguer) is presented is taken to affect the likelihood that the conclusion is true which is, the product is kak.

    Ric_: Lol I'd imagine it's going to be more along the lines of "We want to help you make the most of our gorgeous iPhone 4. And that is why we're offering you an exclusive 5% discount on our fantastic bumpers, only for our iPhone 4 customers. Our bumpers are sexy and make your iPhone 4 look even more amazing. They feel good too. We've spent a long time designing these and now we're ready to make your iPhone experience even better. But that's not all. {audience woo-ing} We're also releasing another software update to make the signal bars more easy to understand. The signal strength indicator will be reduced to a single bar. We think this makes it a lot clearer. We pioneered a single-button mouse, and now we;re leading the way with smartphone signal indicators. It's brilliant."

    All these problems that don't exist might be fixed in iphone 5, at which time we will fix iphone 4 by making it slower with an os downgrade.

    You will buy it anyway because you have teh dumb and like shiny new things.

    Thing is, Jackson had the right idea decades ago and you all laughed at him. Not be long till you iPhone 4 users are going to be sporting the same wear as he did!

    New article on theregister suggesting that there may not be a recall and that a software update could resolve the issue (again!)?

    iPhone 4 fix to centre on software, negate need for recall ? reghardware

    So would it be too cynical to think the software fix will just be a lying version of the current bar indicator?
