    Well, I don't really like Democrats, but way to go Congressman Schumer
    Why do people think we want to know about their political affiliation?

    BTW, this isn't a political forum...

    Thanks Senator. But can you do us a favor and actually go to work and GET STUFF DONE for the country instead of writing letters to Steve Jobs?
    One of this guys aids-

    "Hey senator. I know ur probably busy worrying about getting re elected with ur party tanking, the economy bad, and oil covering most of the south, but heres something to help ur image....."

    Im as upset as the next guy with this whole "death grip" scenario, but really? whens the last time congress got involved, and something got fixed!?!?!?!?!

    well mostly so we can make fun of them for it, but this is a semi-political thread because they said the word "senator"

    Yeah your right, it's not causing any harm.

    People that are in between jobs expecting important phone calls from employers "Hold on Steve told me not to hold it this way I'll call you right back!"
    Why are people in between jobs buying iPhone 4's? I think I would be more worried about paying the bills.

    in essence, if you like what just happened here, you should also like democrats...

    politicians should work on getting things done instead of writing letters and they should stay out of companies' business...once they sort out their own work then maybee it'll be ok for them to try to critique other companies on bigger problems than this...BP rings a bell....but your probably right...not having reception is a much bigger problem lmfao
    Like pulling us out of a recession of providing health care to millions isn't doing something? Riiiiiiiiight....

    my point exactly..he is a new york senator...not a california senator (where apple is) apple is a large corporation so is BP... I'm saying they should stay out of corporation's business and if they have to get into their business it should be a bigger issue than cell reception...and my example of a bigger issue was the oil spill...when you pay 3 times as much for seafood in NY then it'll be his chance to talk about a corporations wrong way of doing things

    He said something that is true, apple must handle this in a transparent manner. Software issue " my balls " this is a hardware problem.

    He knows this will make it onto
    CNN, that's the only reason he is doing it, that being said.....

    I think it's a horrible political move. The country is already pissed of at public officials for focusing on what they believe to be the wrong things, Medicare, immigration, instead of focusing on the financial crisis. Now we have a senator focused on iphone4 reform?? Seriously what is wrong with politicians these days!? Republicans r going to use this as "just another example of how out of touch democrats r". Thanks for giving them more ammo Mr. Senator!

    I can see the headline on Fox
    News now...."Democratic Senator ignores Americas problems, attacks apple instead, kills 400 babies and 2 puppies"

    Mr. senator should have just put this in his letter, way shorter, and then he could champion using less paper and saving the trees. two birds with one stone....PERFECT!

    I'm sure this letter will give Steve Jobs a few chuckles, especially when a US senator requests "transparency".

    People are so easily riled up smh... Anyone can write an open letter to anyone, the fact that he's getting slammed for not "Working on America" is crazy. Do senators not get day offs? Do they not get to rest? Who says he couldn't have taken time from his own personal life to write this? It looks like it took 7 minutes, relax people

    1. is its not his political rally to do such a thing, but the request of thousands of letters he probably recieved to inquire on a solution for the iphone4.
    2. After a month of denial and "Don't hold it that way" qoutes, consumers didn't really get anywhere, as far as getting the problem fixed.
    3. For a coorporate this big, little customers aren't going to do anything, you need strong people such as this Senator to make say on behalf of all of us that experience problems with this phone.
    4. Apple lied...right to everyone's face, there is no covering and trying to protect them, they knew device was faulty, but greed got the best of them...now losing billions in stocks, its definetly not the end to this drama.
    I don't care if he is a politician or not, he is a key player for everyone who has problems with the phone...to FIND A RESOLUTION!
    This says it all. I just wanna add to all those saying this was a waste of the mans time. I'm sure it didn't take long to draft this letter and I'm sure he had a team of people all working together to yield the final draft as quickly as possible. Its not like he was up till 4 am redbull cans and balls of paper lying everywhere writing this thing with a number 2 pencil and pasting his favorite peanuts stamp on it. Although if I was steve jobs I would tell the senator to go tuck himself in.

    Vote desperate tool jumping on a current "controversy" to gain political steam, absolutely nothing more.
    If there is no problem they would be jumping onto nothing.

    seems a little premature for their involvement. It's not causing harm and has only been out a month.
    When there is a public outcry, and there are enough number of them they will jump on board.

    Thanks Senator. But can you do us a favor and actually go to work and GET STUFF DONE for the country instead of writing letters to Steve Jobs?
    Don't know about you but I can pen this letter going to the bathroom. It is not declaration of independence here, he may have written on this on his own time. He may own one himself, would be funny if he says "I could not call in my vote, so now Hitler Jr is confirmed as XXXXX (fill XXXXX government office you can think of makes it so wrong). Well guess what he is looking after consumer interests, so yes this is part of his job.

    Dear Mr. Senator,

    Shut the hell up.

    Sincerely,

    Steve Jobs

    P.S. You should focus on getting laws passed and not worried about cell phones.

    P.S.S. - If you missed it before, Shut the hell up.
