Sorry that doesn't mean they are good at certain technology sectors. I use them for lots of things but not for computers/appliances. I bought my barracuda without 1 consultation with consumer reports. I also bought my stereo system carver amp, yamaha cassette deck, magnepan speakers etc without consumer reports, but when I went to buy a vacuum they were my first choice for which is best. I simply don't trust them for the technical nuances in certain electronics equipment.
Regardless of all that, Apple may have a problem with antennas I just won't use consumer reports as the basis for whether they do or not. I just don't feel they have the expertise. This is based on my own experience at their general lack of technology IQ.
What Apple does have is for sure a PR nightmare, It is especially difficult when you look at the ramifications for how they address it or fail to address it.
I like Apple they generally do a good job on hardware/software, that doesn't mean I would buy anything and everything the sell. I own a Ford truck but I also don't think they are the end all be all of vehicles.
