The iPhone 4's Crippling/Non-Crippling Problem/Non-Problem

Engadget’s Nilay Patel surveyed Engadget contributors and some other folks (including me) about the iPhone 4 and whether they’ve encountered the grip of death issue. The bottom line is…there is no bottom line! Some people have detected no problem whatsoever and some (like me) have seen it in certain circumstances. Nobody finds it a gotcha so enormous as to render the phone useless.

Even if Nilay’s story doesn’t clear things up, it’s good reading.


Memo to Palm

In WebOS, Palm has one of the best mobile operating systems on the planet–the basis of some very nice phones. But almost all the recent news for the company has been bleak.

It’s tough love, and it all makes sense to me.
