Remember Antennagate? Now Apple’s New iPhone 4 Problem Is Being Called ‘Glassgate’

Just when Apple may have thought that any problems with the iPhone 4 were over, up pops another issue. It seems that complaints are coming in that the glass on the back of the iPhone 4 is cracking. It seems that some 3rd party cases can trap particles that can scratch the glass. These scratches eventually cause the glass to crack.

In a recent article it also stated that:

Even without the particulate, the phone can get scratched, leading to the same problem, it seems.

This has sent Apple’s engineers into a “quiet panic” trying to come up with a solution to the problem.

Apple just put Antennagate in its rear view mirror, and Block has already labeled this problem Glassgate.

Though there is just a single report of the problem, the world is waiting to see if anyone else encounters broken glass on the iPhone 4 back side.

We will just have to wait until Apple responds with their own analysis of the problem and if one even exists.

Google Adds Calender & Doc Gadgets To Gmail

The elf’s at Google seem to be working late into the night developing new features for their popular Gmail program. This time they have added gadgets for both Google Doc’s and Google Calender to Gmail. This addition will make it easier for uses of these Google programs to access their stuff while surfing the Internet and checking their mail.

On their blog Google states that:

Gmail Labs has been a really fun way to easily try out new ideas and get some of our pet feature requests implemented quickly. We wanted to take this to the next level and let you start adding your own stuff to Gmail. Today we’re launching a few Labs experiments that let you add gadgets to the left-nav, next to Chat and Labels.

To get you started, we’ve worked with the engineers from the Calendar and Docs teams on two highly requested features: a simple way to see your Google Calendar agenda and get an alert when you have a meeting, and a gadget that shows a list of your recently accessed Google Docs and lets you search across all of your documents right from within Gmail.

Google seems on a mission to add new items to their already popular Gmail program which must be adding to the frustrations that Microsoft must be experiencing.  I recently posted an article here, stating that Microsoft was removing several of their popular features from Windows 7, in the hopes of forcing people to come to their Windows Live site.

So what do you think? Are these features you will be using?

Comments welcome.
