[Chris Harlan] "There aren't that many Corps. that get away with "you're holding it wrong," and have the faithful respond with, "oh, pardon me.""

Why does this make me laugh thinking of the slick music video I saw where the star rapper was singing into the END of a Neumann U87.

(for the music gear unfamiliar, the U87 is a very expensive German side-address mic. So singing into the end of it is the precise musical equivalent of "you're holding it wrong.")

Also, since the whole, "you're holing it wrong" meme was born from the iPhone 4 antenna field tests - it I guess it makes people feel superior to riff on that - but if the way you hold something actually tests out to diminish it's function (and for those who don't recall, it was the crazy Apple fanboy crew at Consumer Reports who withheld their recommendation because of it (IIRC) and brought the whole stink to light — shouldn't that be relevant? Most of us who owned iPhones at that time, just yawned, bought a case so we didn't inadvertently short the tiny antenna gap on the frame - whether or not it was a "real" issue - and got back to life.

That the overall phone design delighted legions and it sold zillions was trivial, I guess, in the face of the superior thinking of the haters.

I can personally attest that there's nothing quite so annoying as stumbling over actual facts along the path to one's smugness.
