Interestingly, the press conference earlier kicked off their event with this song, which parodies the iPhone 4 antenna problems and suggests that the media has blown the issue out of proportion.


there’s an awful lot of hoopla
around the iphone 4 anttenna
when you grip it with the death grip
and you’re call slips away

the media loves a failure
in a string of success
the facts won’t ever matter
if they can make bigger messes

sure i can make it happen
but in terms of daily usage
i’ve yet to drop a call
so this whole damn thing is stupid

and you can call me a fanboy
i’ve been called worse things
but gizmodo just ridiculous
pulling their anti-apple strings

you bought a stolen prototype
get over it and move on
or hey even better
let’s all sing this song
