iPhone 4 Issues & Insurance

June 25, 2010 – Today’s most interesting stories in technology, media and entertainment:

Incompatible iPhone People: Apple is experiencing some interesting problems with the iPhone 4. Forget the out of stock issues, that’s the good news. The bad news is that some people are not compatible with the antenna and when they hold the iPhone 4 in a specific way, the device loses its connection. Like I said, interesting.

Real iPhone Insurance: AT&T has authorized MobileProtect to insure iPhones. The $11.99 per month policy is the only insurance that will cover loss or theft plus water or liquid damage, accidental damage and out-of-warranty failure — which are the most popular reasons for dead iPhones.

Soccer Sets Web Traffic Record: The USA’s exciting world cup match against Algeria set new traffic records on the world wide web. Traffic spiked to an estimated 11.2 million visitors per minute after Landon Donovan’s goal. Akamai, the network tallying net usage, reported that its index peaked yesterday at noon with almost 21 million visitors per minute. Wow!
