    Media back-lash from Apple's bogus "Droid X death-grip" Claim.

    As I had hoped, several media sources have already been bold enough to step forth and call-out Apple on it's YouTube vids that claim that the Droid X suffers from a deathgrip. This is pretty significant when considering that Apple is already dealing with trust issues among consumers.

    I hope this is the very beginning of the downfall of Apple. They've gotten away with way too much crap for way too long.

    I heard that they think they're "new and innovative" for showing supposed videos of bars dropping. hahaha

    lol I can see how the testing for this by Apple went:

    Apple flunkie: Sir we had a call disconnect with the Droid X while climbing a mountain in the middle of nowhere and I held it as tight as possible so it would't drop ten thousand feet.
    Jobs: Call the presses! This'll get them off our backs about those stupid bumpers. And get Lance Armstrong on the phone we need more of those bands to make those bumpers!

    No matter what, most Apple fans will ignore these articles anyway.
