Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

The iPhone 7 Plus makes an audible hissing noise whenever under intense strain, according to customer reports. Stephen Hackett of the blog 512 Pixels first noticed the defect while restoring his phone from iCloud. Hackett eventually realized that the noise wasn't coming from the speaker, but rather from the logic board itself. You can hear what it sounds like in a YouTube video. Apple blog 9to5mac suggested that it could be some kind of cooling system, while others suspect the defect is due to "coil whine."

The iPhone 7 Plus is one incredible beast of a phone. In terms of sheer processing power, nothing comes close. Its Google Octane V2 score (which measures how quickly a phone processes JavaScript) is almost eight times that of the Samsung Galaxy S7. It's A10 Fusion processor is the ludicrous equivalent of putting a souped-up Ferrari engine in a phone.

This has lead many to suspect that processor is somehow to blame.

Maybe the new EarPods will cancel out the hiss. Assuming they don't mysteriously stop working.

That's just the sound of their money leaving their wallet.

Oh, you said "hissing".

Whether hi-tech products or pharmaceuticals, it never pays to be the first in line.

And they are hardly leading edge. Companies have done this to phones before. Other popular products have done this before.

"Leading edge is bleeding edge"... this quote came from Dr. Solomon when the first Pentiums came down with a 'floating point error'. It was a bigger scandal than Sammy's exploding phones.
