iPhone 4 proximity sensor problems

Despite selling over 1.7 million units in three days (making it the fastest selling handset ever), the iPhone 4 is now becoming famous for its reception problems due to the way the phone it held.

Add to this reports of blotchy marks on the finish and scratches on the screen lead many to assume the iPhone 4 has been rushed to market. To add to the above there is talk of another fault, proximity sensor failure.

The proximity sensor detects when the phone is against your ear therefore and lock the keypad. Apple support forums are becoming full of users venting their frustration that the sensor is not behaving as it should, causing unwanted keypad inputs to be made.

Hollywood Hospital Open for Business on iPhone

May 18th, 2010 at 4:35 pm by MauraS

Hospital management and medical management games are always very popular in the App store, and you pretty much know what to expect with most of them –ensuring that patients get cared for in time, buying new machines and equipment, tending to machines, taking X-rays, all the usual stuff – but Zed Worldwide’s Hollywood Hospital caught my attention because it looks a little wackier and a little weirder than those regular run-of-the-mill hospital games. The clue is in the name – this hospital is set in Hollywood Hospital, right in the middle of Tinseltown, so the patients’ problems are a little more exotic than those in a normal hospital, and the gameplay takes on a wider dimension, being not just a frantic time-management game but also a tongue-in-cheek look at the world of celebrity.

Turns out that a virus has broken out in Hollywood, transforming the residents into larger-than-life movie characters, with Rambones and LockJaws roaming Sunset Boulevard. The stricken residents turn to Dr Mathers Storm, award-winning Surgeon at Hollywood Hospital, and his crack team of super-smart medical experts to diagnose, scan, treat, prod, poke and cure the patients. Your primary aim is to get them comfortable, diagnosed, treated and discharged fast enough to make it onto the red carpet.

Do the job right, and you’ll be able to expand your hospital, with up to 6 extensions available.

Hollywood Hospital has 35 levels to play in total, and features Openfeint achievement sharing and leaderboards. You can download it for your iPhone or iPod touch from the Apple iTunes App Store for $1.99.
