During a question-and-answer session after todays iPhone 4 press conference Steve Jobs completely rubbished the Bloomberg story that said that he had been warned about the iPhone 4 antenna issues prior to launch. AppleInsider reports that Jobs said that the piece was total bulls**t when asked about it. Although Apple had already refuted the report, Jobs was typically succinct and unequivocal when asked about the matter, responding its a total crock. We talked to everyone about it. We have a great community of scientists. They debate everything. And its healthy. The best ideas win.
AppleInsider says that Steve Jobs also talked about a New York Times article from Thursday, which said that the antenna problems were caused by software and would be fixed with another iOS update. Theyre just making things up, was Jobs response to that particular story. He was also reported as saying that Apple had considered an iPhone 4 recall, but didnt think it was worth it in the end because the number of people actually complaining about the issue to AppleCare was in reality very small. Finally Jobs revealed that Apple had even sent engineers out to people who had complained about reception issues to test equipment in their homes! These people literally get a knock at the door from Apple engineers with a bunch of equipment and want to plug it in and test reception. Were really serious about this.
