“Just avoid holding it that way,” Steve Jobs told a customer who complained that his new iPhone 4 loses reception when he touches the metal band framing the device.
That’s according to an e-mail posted at Engadget.
Unbelievable. I hope other business leaders don’t try to emulate Jobs this way. Especially the ones making cars and airplanes. Imagine this exchange:
“Hey Boeing, we’ve got some cracking in the tail of our new 787 and it looks like there’s an assembly problem with the horizontal tail. Any plans to fix this?”
“Just avoid flying it that way.”
