Well, Gorilla Glass is awesome for not breaking, but this is hilarious. It's like Apple is playing a game of "Let's see how many stupidly simple bad design decisions we can make this time around, because we just don't give a fuck anymore. Oh, and give us your money." That's a long title for a game, though.

Clearly they do care because they are delaying the release of it so they can fix it. You sound like a fucking dumbass.

They could've gone with a different design which didn't use glass. Then they wouldn't have this problem to begin with.

Nice comeback, looks like you are running out of them fast man. Cmon, gimme a good excuse other than there are other phones out there. I expected more from you. Somebody is really trying hard to turn Apple into the next Sprint-Nextel. Now they are getting sued because of a faulty Ipad. Keep it up Apple! Time for a CEO change??????

So glad they haven't opted for white glass bumpers to solve the antenna issues. That would have just been REALLY embarrassing.
