I do have an issue with the device which is known by Apple and they still haven't adequately adressed it: the iPad loses my WiFi connection frequently. Apple's response has been to blame the router or to adjust the screen brightness. These "solutions" haven't worked for me. I have been able to find a work around of sorts: when the signal is lost, I press the sleep/wake button and then turn it back on. It reconnects without me having to re-enter my network password (which is highly annoying to do repeatedly). As far as I'm concerned Apple's response is to place blame on anyone but them.
In May, my Dell laptop crapped out and I was forced to look for a replacement. I decided to jump aboard Apple again and purchased a 15" MacBook Pro. This by far is the best laptop I've ever owned and am very pleased with it.
This brings me to my recent iPhone 4 upgrade. I was one of the lucky "few" to reserve a 16 GB iPhone 4 (via the Apple Store app on my current iPhone). I ended up waiting about 1 1/2 hours total on Thursday 6/25 at the Apple store from start to finish - which wasn't that bad considering that some people were waiting many many hours in line. The phone is beautiful itself and is so much faster than my old 3G. But, I am experiencing the dreaded loss of signal reception issue when I hold the phone in my left hand. This is a major issue. To date, Apple's response has been again to blame everyone else ("hold it in your other hand," "you are holding it wrong," or "get a case for it.") Incidentally, I would've bought their $30 piece of rubber they call a "bumper" but they were already sold out at the Apple store when I got there. I ordered one on-line and I am still waiting for it to ship. (Still, $30?!?!)
I am profoundly disappointed in Apple's responses to these well known and ubiquitous issues. To shift the blame to others in completely unacceptable. As a clinician, I take the responsibility for the care that I render and the buck stops with me. Apple should do the same and quickly.
