iPhone 4 the most successful Apple product launch despite multiple issues

We have been hearing all over the internet with tweets and status updates all around about the issues that iPhone 4 customers are facing. But this does not affect the number of iPhone 4’s that the company sold in the 1st 3 days of its launch.

Apple today gave some insight into sales figures for its new iPhone 4 device. The company says it has sold 1.7-million iPhone 4 devices in only three days after it started selling the phones on June 24, making the iPhone 4 the most successful product launch in the firms history. When the pre-orders of this device opened on the 15th June, the very first day, 600k units were reported to be booked which also led to Apple and AT&T systems to crash.

The iPhone launched in the United States, among select European nations, including Germany, France, and the United Kingdom on June 24. The iPhone 4 is set to launch in Canada some time in July, as confirmed by Apple, where the phone is also hugely anticipated and also expected to top previous sales records.

The preceding iPhone model, the iPhone 3GS, thought to be hugely successful, sold 1-million devices in seven days.

The new iPhone 4 features a high quality 5mp camera, including new video conferencing between other iPhone 4 users (although that functionality will be expanded as developers utilize APIs to add camera support in their applications) via FaceTime, 720p HD video recording, 1GHz Apple A4 processor, 512MB RAM, up to 32GB of internal storage, an improved iOS 4, among other features.

Despite the strong demand, early reports indicate the new iPhone 4 is having minor connectivity issues, as it is very sensitive as to where users can hold the phone during a call. Apparently, for some, holding the phone by the lower ends results in very poor signal causing the phone to lose connectivity due to attenuation.

It is unclear if Apple will make any changes to address the issue by releasing a software update. A recall is not expected, although the company could slightly alter the internal design of future production models. We will have to wait for any announcement on that. Till then, stay tuned…

A boon for heavy smokers – Switch to fake tobaccoless cigarrete

They say, Smoking is injurious to health. Even the manufacturers have to write it on the pack of cigarretes as a norm. But do you follow it? Even reading this message on the pach you tend to ignore it and continue enjoy the activity. Almost everyone knows the bad effects of smoking cigarettes. Bad breath, stained teeth, dreaded lung cancer, and not to mention the amount of money you have to spend on them each day.

Also, smoking hurts people around you because passive smoking is more dangerous than active smoking, second hand smoking can also cause cancer and trigger asthma attacks. But what if there were another way? What if smoking had no bad effects at all? What if you could smoke in buildings, cars, or any place where smoking is prohibited?

With technology advancing in every field of life, you will not at all be surprised that technology advancement has done good to  the high time smokers. The company called MyLuci is the innovation that I am referring to here. Luci is a tobaccoless cigarette or as users like to call it, fake cigarette. These fake cigarettes look and work just like the real thing. This is how it works.

Luci emits a water vapor instead of real smoke, so you do not have to worry about damaging your lungs with it. One of the worse things about smoking real cigarettes is the smoke damage done, but with these fake cigarettes you do not have to worry about this in the least bit.

Below are the various mind blowing features of this cigarrete, which makes it worth trying:

  • LUCI has no actual smoke and a pleasant odor. LUCI is not regulated by traditional smoking bans.
  • As already mentioned, LUCI uses pure water-based vapor that looks just like smoke, so there’s no harsh odors.
  • It gives you the choice of chosing a flavor and nicotine to satisfy your cravings. LUCI has multiple varieties to choose from.
  • LUCI is dentist recommended to smokers to not stain teeth or cause bad breath like cigarettes.
  • And the main thing, If you smoke a pack a day or more, you can save over $1,500 a year by switching to LUCI, which is a lot of money.

One more important feature worth mentioning is that Luci’s fake cigarette also has a smart chip in it which will turn the product off if too much nicotine is inhaled in a very short time. This function can help you to not “smoke” too much. Luci is a rechargeable unit so there is no worrying about batteries or lighters.

See the video below which gives you more information about this great product:

The iPhone 4 Recall Tweet Is totally Fake?

There has been a tweet (Twitter update) from what is said to Steve Jobs, that a possible iPhone 4 recall is on the way. Here’s the tweet that is creating the iPhone 4 recall buzz:

“We may have to recall the new iPhone. This I did not expect.”

Now, the question arises here that is this for real or just another fake on the internet.

Some people are claiming that this tweet originated from Steve Jobs himself, but these rumors started late last night (Saturday night). But by Sunday afternoon, the tweet that was supposedly from Steve Jobs is now being speculated that it the tweet is actually from a fake Steve Jobs’ Twitter account.

Below is the tweet that is causing all the buzz:

The fake Steve Jobs Tweet

What’s causing the iPhone 4 recall rumors?

No sooner did Apple release the iPhone 4 on June 24th when the web started buzzing about iPhone 4 problems. One of the main iPhone 4 complaints has been related to signal dropping after you hold the iPhone 4 (or grip it) along the metal bands on both sides of the device.

So, we will have to wait till the real Steve finds solution to the issues that the iPhone users are facing and if this recall thing is for real or just a rumour. What do you think?
