Apple, not content to merely whine that they are not alone in the death-grip-signal-attenuation circle of hell, has produced a video clip of the Droid X losing reception when held in a certain fashion.

Of course, there was no bias whatsoever in the creation of the video, right? Do us a favor, if you have a Droid X, please complete the same test and report in the comments what happened. In Apple’s defense, my iPhone 3G (I’m old school) seems rather unflappable to the problem.

If you want to steam at Apple for self proclaiming revolutionary status, and then resorting to cheap school-yard “but they did it to” tactics when they flub, watch on.
