Hey guys,

I just came across yet another apple developed antenna-gate video, which I am sure you have either seen or heard about already. This time apple targets the moto Droid X. It shows a “”typical”" holding position and it losing bars.

I am getting rather frustrated with Apple pointing fingers. They are simply glorifying the whole “”if they can do it, so can I”" theory. I’ve leaned since I was 5 years old that if other people are doing things that they shouldn’t be doing, I shouldn’t do them, period. Apple really needs to stop pointing fingers, accept it’s fault, grow up and move on. This is getting ridiculous.

Video… http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YJG7pbSRvJ8

Regards,

Ryan Boysen
