Michael Arrington:

But suddenly Consumer Reports is crazy for the link bait. This iPhone 4 antenna problem has them going absolutely batshit crazy, and nearly every day they’re firing off a new set of recommendations, or demands, that conflict with the old recommendations and demands.

Consumer Reports is an old crumbling piece of journalism – the iPhone 4 does have problems, but you can’t rate it as the best smartphone ever and yet still not recommend it. They need to say it isn’t that great and don’t buy it, or it is that great and buy it with the antenna problems. Right now they are sitting in the middle and the middle helps no consumer that they report to.
