Sex shock! Nudity disbelief! iChatr Chat-Roulette-style app for iPhone 4 pulled from App Store

Apple has yanked iChatr -- the chat-roulette-style app for iPhone 4 -- from the iTunes App Store.

If you're familiar with what goes on in these kinds of apps, the (predominantly male) nudity and sexual activity, then this probably doesn't come as much of a surprise. If you're not familiar, you probably downloaded it, became familiar quickly, and near instantly complained to Apple prompting the removal.

According to the developers, SKJM:

The iPhone Antenna Song - Friday fun video

The iPhone Antenna Song - Friday fun video

Apple held a press conference today to discuss the antenna issue on the iPhone 4. To open the conference, they showed a YouTube video titled "The iPhone Antenna Song".

Even though the song takes Apple's side, it's great to see Apple have a sense of humor about this whole mess and give a fan some spotlight. This song also takes a jab at certain blogs... -- maybe that's why Steve liked it so much?

Watch the video after the break!

Apple posts iPhone 4 Antenna Press Conference Video, Antenna Information Page

Apple posts iPhone 4 Antenna Press Conference Video, Antenna Information Page

That was fast! Apple has not only posted up the video of their iPhone 4 Antenna Press conference from earlier today (sadly, without the Q&A), they have also put up a dedicated page to discussion signal strength issues with the death grip:

On a mobile phone, signal loss typically occurs when your hand attenuates the most sensitive part of the antenna. In the photos and videos below, we demonstrate how different grips cause attenuation on many popular smartphones — including iPhone 4 and iPhone 3GS.

Say what you will about Apple PR, but when they decide to make a move, they move fast and make as big a splash as they can. Give it a watch and let us know: are you convinced?

Apple: No software fix for iPhone 4 antenna issues

When asked during the iPhone 4 press conference if there would be a software fix for iPhone 4's antenna issues, Steve Jobs and Scott Forestall both said an emphatic (borderline hostile) "no".

While Apple offered apologies, facts and figures, demonstrations of other smartphones having the same issue, and free bumpers and cases to take care of their customers, they said no software fix was forthcoming:

Q (Josh, Engadget): NY Times says this might have a software fix, is this something that can be helped with software? Steve: We just spent the last hour going through how the iPhone 4 drops only 1 more call per hundred than the 3GS. … Go talk to the Times, because you guys talk to yourselves a lot, and they’re just making this stuff up.
