So yesterday, the iPhone 4 was released in the US, the UK and many other countries other than Canada. And the Internet is all abuzz over the problems with reception on the iPhone 4. Basically, the problem is that human hands are conductive, and when holding the bottom left corner of the phone, skin creates a bridge between the HSPA and Bluetooth/Wifi antennae (antennas?) and causes the phone to drop connections as seen here:

An iPhone 4 user sent an e-mail to Mr. Jobs regarding the problem and received a curt reply:

So, according to Steve, we all need to adjust the way we hold our phones. Not a huge deal I suppose, but as a clever user pointed out, I think we learned by example.
