Newest use for duct tape – iPhone4

Posted: July 15, 2010 in Technology

I’m not so interested in all the fanboy versus fandroid back and forth. But Michael Arrington at TechCrunch made a valid point today when he said that you shouldn’t buy something that needs duct tape to work. That is in reference to the Consumer Reports test of the iPhone4 in which they found that if you cover the phone’s antenna with duct tape the signal strength problem seems to go away.

On the other hand, as a commenter pointed out, real men can fix anything with duct tape. So the iPhone4 is for real men. That’s a compelling argument, but slightly misguided. You see, real men can fix anything that’s broken using duct tape, but they wouldn’t buy a product with an inherent design flaw just to have to fix it with duct tape. Only fanboys do that and fanboys are not real men.
