The International Telecommunication Union has agreed on a new draft recommendation for the Ultra High Definition TV (UHDTV) specifications, including technical details for both 4K (3840 x 2160) and 8K (7680 x 4320) displays. While this is subject to approval from the union’s administration, the move would seem to confirm that both resolutions will be labeled as UHDTV, similar to how “HD” 720p sets were sold before “full HD” 1080p became the norm. It’s a little disappointing that the ITU didn’t take the opportunity to go for a less potentially confusing system this time around, but hey — at least you won’t have to wait for NHK and Panasonic’s 145-inch 8K Super Hi-Vision set to get your hands on a UHDTV.

This is not good news for Apple. After initially saying that the iPhone 4’s reception issues were no big deal, Consumer Reports has changed its stance, recognizing that the software fix won’t help matters, and retracting their recommendation. Apparently, they finally got around to testing the device.
And they’ve just discovered the phone’s reception problems, which we have known about since the beginning.
Here’s what they say about the testing:
We reached this conclusion after testing all three of our iPhone 4s (purchased at three separate retailers in the New York area) in the controlled environment of CU’s radio frequency (RF) isolation chamber. In this room, which is impervious to outside radio signals, our test engineers connected the phones to our base-station emulator, a device that simulates carrier cell towers. We also tested several other AT&T phones the same way, including the iPhone 3G S and the Palm Pre. None of those phones had the signal-loss problems of the iPhone 4.
My question is why would they have recommended the phone without testing it? This certainly will tarnish their reputation.

…4 based on antenna issues. But how did we get here?
I've actually been meaning to write something about this for the last week and a half since Apple published its letter regarding the iPhone 4's reception issues (links below). The same day Apple confessed that all the fuss over reception was simply due to the fact that the “formula [Apple]…
