"Thanks to the massive headache of Antennagate, Consumer Reports famously felt that it could not recommend the iPhone 4 to its readers... an approbation that, as we all know, tanked Apple stock, prompted Cupertino to dump unsold iPhones by the millions into an Arizona landfill and ultimately led to Apple's enthusiastic embrace of Microsoft's Windows Phone 7 operating system."
Riiiiiiiight. All in jest of course, although the Consumer Reports article on the AT&T iPhone 4 did give the critics plenty of fodder. But they think with the internal changes found when iFixIt did the teardown that these problems have been corrected. Perhaps not according to this article. Overall I think the issue was overblown and to NOT recommend the iPhone 4 because of it was ridiculous, especially when it was shown that there were several other makes/models of cell phones that suffered the same problem. I'm with the author, it's all about the page views.
