Since the launch of Apple's iPhone 4, it's been plagued by one thing or another. Most common of all, though, is the device's ability to lose service based on the position the device is within your grasp. There's been all sorts of claims, from it being the external antenna to the software inside, and it's lead to several different situations. The first of which, was the response from Apple stating what they believed to be obvious: hold any phone in a certain manner, and it will lose reception.

Packing the freshly-released iOS4 with a slimmed-down, powered-up hardware, as ever the promise is not so much ticks on the spec sheet but a superlative user experience.

Amazon Kindle for iOS Now Supports Embedded Video and Audio

Amazon Kindle for iOS Now Supports Embedded Video and Audio

We're not exactly sure what to think about this. Today, Amazon officially announced, thanks to a press release that you can read after the break, that the application for the iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad is now fully capable of playing embedded videos, and embedded audio.

iOS4 downgrade guide to 3.1.3 saves sluggish iPhones

When iOS4 was released earlier this week, it seemed like a no-brainer for iPhone 3GS, 3G and iPod touch owners to update: after all, free software and boosted features can't be argued with, right?  Unfortunately for many users its turned out to be less impressive than expected, with some handsets now running sluggishly, battery life taking a significant dip and in general the whole experience being sub-par.  Apple may well update iOS4 for these earlier devices and iron out some of the hassles, but until then Lifehacker has a handy guide for downgrading back to iOS 3.1.3.

iPhone 4’s Poor Reception Could be Software Related [Video]

If you've followed the tech industry for any discernible amount of time, then you know that when something launches, it's usually the bad parts that get covered the most. Despite the reviews, or the fact that probably not even half of the people who ordered/purchased an iPhone 4 have received theirs (yet), reports of poor reception launched out onto the Internet. It didn't help that there were further reports of discoloration in the screen. If it's not one thing, it's another. But, just like we reported earlier today with the yellow screens, it's looking like that reception problem could be something short-lived.
