There may be another issue with the new iPhone's hardware. First we had discolored screens and radios that crap out when you hold them wrong. Now rumors are bubbling up that a bunk proximity sensor may soon need adding to the list. PMP Today reports that multiple users have complained that their iPhone's are unable to recognize when a face is placed in close proximity.
Functionally, this means the phone will be prone to letting your face press the mute or 'end call' button. There hasn't been a huge uproar over this one yet, so the problem may be confined to a relatively small subset of users. New iPhone users, have you noticed this issue? If so, drop us an email.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
