Apple Retail Increasing Staffing in U.S. for August-September Too
Apple appears to be increasing staffing in U.S. Retail Apple Stores too this fall. Previous reports had shown Apple Retail staff recruitment from August through October in the U.K.
We've now learned that at least some U.S. Apple Retail stores are also recruiting former employees to return as part time employees for Holidays, new Product Launches and Back to School time. A former employee received emails asking to return between August 15 and September 15th.
The simplest explanation for the increased staffing is to handle the back to school influx as U.S. students begin the fall semester. As with the U.K. retail staffing recruitment, however, the dates also correspond to Apple's expected iPhone 5 launch. Apple's widely expected to launch the iPhone 5 this Fall alongside iOS 5.

Good god get off your high horse. Apple has been making a good product, and we the consumer have been buying it. If it wasn't a good product, we wouldn't buy it. If you aren't happy with your experience, don't buy the next one. We don't care.
Um, "we" didn't all buy a flawed product. I never had a problem with my antenna and there isn't a thing I don't like about my iPhone. I am one of the "we" who bought a product that exceeded our expectations. So speak for yourself.
I think its time for you to move on to a different product if you're really that unhappy with it.
I have been known to have some valid complaints...

GET A GRIP !
Just like Verizon, then.
They were just updated in February.. I wouldn't expect anything till early 2012 for a full model refresh.
