If you follow the iPhone you will remember back when the iPhone 4 launched a problem with the antenna was discovered. The problem was that when you put your hand on area of the smart phone where the antenna was you could lose signal strength. Steve Jobs famously quipped that people should not hold the phone that way.

There were originally multiple suits against Apple over the antenna issues that were combined into a single class action. The settlement in a class-action has now been reached, and you are not getting rich. I would bet that some of the attorneys made a bundle on this case. Original buyers of the iPhone 4 will get an e-mail with particulars before April 30.

People will have a 120-day claim window to submit their claim. The settlement will give each qualified claimant take some of $15 or free bumper. Apple had previously offered free bumper cases, but not everyone took advantage.

About the Geek Mind

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.
