Three Apple job postings for iPhone / iPad antenna engineers to "Define and implement antenna system architecture to optimize the radiation performance for wireless portable devices." All three were posted on June 23rd, the same day that we started seeing widespread reporting of the left-handed reception issues.
It's been a long time coming, but Konami has finally launched the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch version of Pro Evolution Soccer 2010, featuring realistic soccer gameplay designed to set the new standard for on-the-go-gaming, just as it did for console gaming.
Pro Evolution Soccer 2010 centers on stunning 3D graphics that recreate the intensity of match-day action. Players can use a variety of all-new, innovative control interfaces to master their soccer skills. Faithfully recreated with existing versions in mind, Pro Evolution Soccer 2010 also features key game modes, including UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League elements.
Boy Genius Report has got its hands on an internal memo to AppleCare staff that tells them how to deal with calls about the antenna and poor reception issue. The memo instructs AppleCare staff to emphasise the fact that the iPhone 4's overall antenna performance is better than that of the iPhone 3GS, to point out to the customer that holding any mobile phone in a certain way can cause reception issues, and to tell the caller that the use of a rubber or plastic bumper may improve wireless performance. The memo ends with a very adamant:
As BGR says, one of the most interesting things about the memo is the fact that there is no mention whatsoever of the...

As July 4th a.k.a Independence Day arrives, Glu Mobile is celebrating early by cutting most of their games to $.99. Will Smith won't be the one saving the day, he's too busy Will "Smithing" around, but the sale might keep you out of boredom without stealing your pockets.
Check out all these games you can play for $.99 instead of watching the fireworks, because who really wants to do that? *sarcasm*
The following games will be on sale July 1st through July 6th:
Must have missed this one. This is a video that I skimmed through a few days ago and now it has gone viral with over half a million hits. I don't even know where to start with this. It's random, it's funny, it's smart, it's stupid, and all of the above. It shows some cat-like 3D characters talking to each other about the iPhone 4 and the HTC Evo. Check it out, it's worth a few laughs.
So, Hulu Plus hit the App Store today and so far, the ratings are horrible. As of now, the average rating is 1 and half star(1045 Ratings). The App is free to download and to try out, there are a few shows you can watch without paying the $9.99/month fee.
Personally, other than the price, the App worked fine for me. I think a lot of people don't understand what they are getting here. You are getting every episode of a lot of shows, not just the most recent/picked 5(like the desktop version). These are full length "box sets" of the shows that would normally run you around $150+ for just one set of a show. Think about it...
A video that we made to kind of wrap up what has been happening in the iPhone 4 world! It talks about the upcoming Jailbreak for the iPhone 4, Microsoft Word, iPhone 4 sales, and more! Seriously, just watch the video.
A new report from Bloomberg cites multiple sources saying the iPhone 4 will launch with Verizon Q1 of 2011. Apple's exclusivity with AT&T ends January 2011, so the stars appear to being lining up for big red.
Nothing has been confirmed by either companies, so for now it's still just another rumor we can pile on the other Verizon rumors we've heard now for years.
Ducati decided it would be cool if they filmed their entire new commercial on their iPhone 4. The commercial is almost raw iPhone 4 footage, but with added stabilization effect to make it look more professional. The video was shot at 720p HD, which the iPhone 4 video camera supports. There are a lot of cool and amazing shots of the Ducati Multistrada 1200, check out the video for yourself!
