Apple Stores to have additional antennas to improve reception for Verizon iPhone launch

Following the Verizon iPhone announcement in January it looks like Apple and Verizon surveyed Apple Retail Store to determine which ones needed additional antennas installed to improve Verizon reception.

Not huge news considering big buildings like malls can play havoc with reception and extra antennas are typically used to provide better reception in many of them. It is nice to know Apple and Verizon are doing everything possible to make the launch go as smoothly as possible.

Just remember, it isn't the signal strength at a store you should be paying attention to, but the signal strength at home, at work, at school, and at any other location you frequent. If in doubt ask colleagues, friends, and anyone else using Verizon (or AT&T) in those areas what their reception is like.

Full letter after the break. Pre-orders start tomorrow!

Whoopi Goldberg destroyed her iPhone 4

The bad press continues to mount for Apple but this time it was not from David Letterman or Top Gear rather the TV show The View. Whoopi Goldberg described how she took out her frustration of the constant poor performance she has had with her iPhone 4. Exactly how did she destroy you ask - opened her car door and smashed the phone onto the ground.

Luckily my iPhone 4 works pretty well, though I'm sure I would be rational enough not to smash my device on the ground.

Video after the break!
