Being humble and forthcoming about a mistake you’ve made is never easy, especially when the world is watching. But neglecting to fix that mistake can beget consequences that often outweigh the mistake itself. Well it would seem that the heads over at Apple are trying to follow a simular moral compass. As you are undoubtedly [...]

Not sure if you guys watched Steve’s press conference yesterday concerning the iPhone 4 Antenna issue..but before I go on, I want to point out that I’ve been using an iPhone 4 since launch day and have never experienced the bar drop. Let’s get to the point..Apple claims that most smartphones lose signal when holding them in a certain way..and showed some examples. Here’s where it gets fun. Apple claims that holding the Blackberry Bold 9700 in a certain way will make you lose signal…well let me tell you that i’ve been trying it since and nothing! zip! nada! no signal lose….but again, neither does my iPhone 4 lose bars so maybe my hands are “Antennagate” proof! Nonetheless RIM wasn’t too happy about those allegations and released an official statement:
“Apple’s attempt to draw RIM into Apple’s self-made debacle is unacceptable. Apple’s claims about RIM products appear to be deliberate attempts to distort the public’s understanding of an antenna design issue and to deflect attention from Apple’s difficult situation. RIM is a global leader in antenna design and has been successfully designing industry-leading wireless data products with efficient and effective radio performance for over 20 years. During that time, RIM has avoided designs like the one Apple used in the iPhone 4 and instead has used innovative designs which reduce the risk for dropped calls, especially in areas of lower coverage. One thing is for certain, RIM’s customers don’t need to use a case for their BlackBerry smartphone to maintain proper connectivity. Apple clearly made certain design decisions and it should take responsibility for these decisions rather than trying to draw RIM and others into a situation that relates specifically to Apple.”

Guess we’re in for a nice AT&T-Verizon style saga!

With the purchase of nearly any device people are naturally going to want to protect their new investment. One of the ways to protect and increase signal quality your new iPhone 4 is to purchase a case. Case-mate has always provided quality cases for the devices we love and abuse for awhile now. With the iPhone 4, they are continuing that same tradition. The case-mate Vroom for iPhone 4 offers great protection and a unique design. The tire tread design on the back side of the case allows for a firm grip on the iPhone 4 and in case you do drop it the covers/corners are protected from those nasty dents and scratches. Along with the case case-mate provides you with screen protectors to help keep scratches to a minimum. You can pickup the iPhone 4 Vroom case from case-mate today for only $14.99. Well worth it in my eyes.

It seems companies are going to take full advantage of the issues with the iPhone 4 reception and Apple’s excuse being that the users are just holding it wrong. Motorola placed a full page ad in today’s New York Times advertising the Droid X and at the same time taking a pretty good shot at [...]

Do I even need to say it? The iPhone 4 launched yesterday, there I said it. A contributor to BerryScoop, @thecoolestgeek, was waiting in line and decided to take along his video cam and see what happened. Through the numerous shout outs for BerryScoop and a little bit of hating on me, he came up [...]

Some iPhone 4′s have shown up in homes today, a day before they were originally scheduled to show up. One of them just so happened to show up in mine. While I have only had it up and running for about 30 minutes, I have to say this thing is amazing. The screen is the [...]

I have been staring at the above picture since Monday morning, constantly hitting refresh waiting for the delivery date on my iPhone 4 to change. After all, they aren’t supposed to arrive in our homes until the 24th. This was sure to be an error, right? Well whether or not it was will remain unknown, [...]

I think that this will officially go down as the worst Apple device launch to date. First Gizmodo scooped Apple by getting their hands on an iPhone 4 weeks before the official launch. That in itself is bad enough for the guys in Cupertino, but to top it off on the day the iPhone 4 [...]

Does the image above look familiar? I have seen that message since roughly 3am MTN (I was up with my new born, happened to see the iPhone 4 was posted for sale, don’t judge me) throughout various stages of the order process. A few people have been able to get in and have been lucky [...]

What a week, again. Broken record? I think so. In any event we are excited to see what next week brings with the WWDC announcement on Monday, the 1st BerryScoop podcast Monday, and maybe a few other tricks up our sleeves for the week. We hope you tune in and continue supporting us! Remember we [...]

How many more leaks are we going to see of the new iPhone? This has gotten out of hand, but I love it. The above video shows the detail and work that goes into the outer casing of the supposed next gen iPhone. A lot details are similar to the iPad, as seen in the [...]

This has to impress even those who do not particularly care for all the hype Apple seems to create with each product. They have announced today that in less than 60 days they have surpassed the two million unit mark. Odds are that this was in large part due to them launching internationally, but nonetheless [...]

Pretty interesting looking picture, wouldn’t you agree? Well it turns out it is the screen from the upcoming iPhone under a microscope. SuperiPhone.cz put the screen to the test and actually took the time to figure out its pixel density, which ended up at 960×640. To put that into perspective, that is 4 pixels for [...]

Skype updated their popular iPhone application with a welcome and long awaited feature. Going forward iPhone Skype users will finally be able to place calls through Skype via a 3G network. Great news, but there is a catch. It seems the service will only be free “until at least end of August 2010, after which [...]

Before the iPad was even released we were treated to a glimpse of the Wired Magazine application that was in production at the time. I knew then that the iPad was going to change the way we interacted with a lot of things. Specifically newspapers, magazines, and books. Yesterday Wired released their application in the [...]
