And it is, no wonder our country is in trouble. From Sen. Schumer's letter to Apple:
But Consumer Reports disputed that explanation on Monday. In a review posted on the organization’s website, researchers with Consumer Reports said they would not recommend the product for purchase. The magazine said it found that the antenna was in fact the culprit behind the drop-off in the phone’s reception. It said a design flaw was responsible for the glitch.
Interestingly, Schumer was not nearly as concerned that Consumer Reports announced its “non recommendation” of the iPhone 4 while also giving the iPhone 4 the highest rating it gave to any phone. Maybe he should call on CR to “reconcile the competing claims” the magazine put out, too.
