Problems with New iPhone for First to Have Them

Published

on

We reported this morning about massive lines pretty much everywhere you could get your hands on an iPhone today, on the launch of the newest iPhone version. (If you have information on availability at different area stores, please post in comments section below!)

Now a few reports are coming in about some problems. One seems like a design flaw, and the other is a manufacturing defect you should check for if you have or get one.

Line for the iPhone at The Grove is Insane via @SassyBehr: all the way to the CBS gate! Pure insanity.

The main issue you would need to do something about seems to be yellow spots on some screens. They seem like a simple case of bad screens passing quality checks. Check this page for photos of the problem.

The other is that your already bad AT&T signal may drop if you hold the phone with the lower left corner in the palm of your hand. We’ve posted a video below showing this issue. It apparently isn’t an issue if you put a protective “bumper” from Apple around the unit. If this turns out to be a design flaw affecting all phones, we’re betting that Apple will start including them with all units.

It’s such a shame to see that the signal levels in this video seem to show the NEW iPhone getting a worse signal than the older model, even aside from the problem with holding it by the lower left corner.

Workers protest outside Ralphs in Hollywood where 21 have tested positive for coronavirus

HOLLYWOOD (KTLA) — Workers rallied Friday outside a Ralphs store in Hollywood where 21 people have tested positive for the coronavirus.

The group called on the store to take more aggressive action when staff test positive for the virus, and to ramp up efforts to protect the grocery store employees, who are considered essential workers on the front lines of the pandemic.

They said they speak for thousands of workers who are afraid they aren’t getting enough protection as the virus continues to spread countywide, infecting more than 24,000 as of Friday.

The Ralphs at 7257 W. Sunset Blvd. has had an outbreak involving several workers who tested positive for the virus, according to the Los Angeles Department of Public Health, which lists businesses and […]

Men's Clothing Store in WeHo Suggests Face Coverings the Next Hot Accessory

WEST HOLLYWOOD (TMZ) — Masks … so hot right now, so make sure you get one that makes ya look good out there in the middle of a global pandemic.

That’s what a trendy menswear store in West Hollywood seems to be suggesting with its display of mannequin men sporting face coverings in the front window of the shop.

Check it out … all the plastic models at Klein Epstein & Parker are wearing fashionable face masks that appear to have been made out of stylish pocket squares or a similar material.

So, it begs the question … is this the next new accessory, whether it’s required where you live or not?

As we reported … cities in California, New York, Maryland and others are now requiring citizens to wear masks or face coverings out in public at essential businesses.

Even dogs and cats are getting in on the action to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Fashionable Face Masks

This might seem like another fashion fad, but fact is, until there’s a vaccine … the novel coronavirus is here to stay. That means stylish face coverings will be too.

Amoeba Music won’t be reopening its original Sunset Boulevard store

HOLLYWOOD (TimeOut) — In a statement posted to its Instagram account on Monday, Amoeba announced that it would not be reopening its nearly two-decade-old flagship on Sunset Boulevard. Instead, the indie record shop will divert all of its resources to opening its new shop on Hollywood Boulevard, which they still hope to have ready in the fall.

“There are so many unknowns and uncertainties for a business like ours right now,” the statement reads. “The only way we can keep Amoeba Hollywood alive in the future is to make this difficult decision now.”

Our original story about the store’s GoFundMe campaign appears below.

It’s become a pit stop on music-lover’s tours of Hollywood, it’s hosted concerts from Patti Smith and Paul McCartney, and it’s weathered the Great Recession and the transition from CDs to MP3s to all things streaming. But with Amoeba Music’s future more uncertain now than ever, the massive independent record store is turning to its devotees for nearly half a million dollars to try to stay afloat.

In an essay on GoFundMe, Amoeba cofounders Dave Prinz and Marc Weinstein recount […]
