Apple is giving free bumper cases to every iPhone 4 buyer, but the present offer extends only until September 30th. When Steve Jobs was asked why the freebies end on the 30th of September, he replied, “”We will re-examine this in September and decide whether to keep going, or maybe we will have a better idea.” Is Apple going to release the iPhone 5 in October? Improbable. More »

From Htcyou: When Apple held its press conference to address the iPhone 4’s antenna issues (Antenna Gate), one of the phones singled out by Steve Jobs was the HTC Droid Eris, which can be seen as dropping significant amount of signal when “death-gripped.” HTC has responded. More »

Microsoft’s ambitious Vista operating system is viewed as a failure on many levels. Keven Turner, Microsoft COO, took an unfriendly jab at Apple’s iPhone 4 antenna problems, saying, “It looks like the iPhone 4 might be their Vista, and I’m okay with that.” Is Turner speaking too soon, especially when his company’s Windows Phone 7 faces serious challenges ahead of its launch?
