The nickname given to the scandal surrounding the release
of Apple's iPhone
4 in June 2010, and the alleged reception
issues that arose from holding the phone the 'wrong way'.
Shortly after thousands of iSheep
s complained about
the problem, Steve Jobs
responded by offering all iPhone 4 users a free carry case, and also
accusing virtually every major mobile phone manufacturer
of making phones with poor signal as well, and that
'Antennagate' was not unique to Apple.
These manufacturers, including Nokia
, RIM (Blackberry
) and Samsung
refuted these claims, and told Apple to go fuck themselves.
Meanwhile iPhone 4 owners still believe they
own the coolest gadget on earth, despite
the fact that
pick the phone
lose the ability to call/text anybody, and are already
eagerly waiting the release of iPhone 5.
First there was Sachsgate, then Bloodgate, and now Antennagate.
