iPhone 4 issues, Browser Battles and Fourth of July Fireworks Photo Tips on PCWorld Podcast #83: R.I.P. Kin

Join PCWorld editors Tim Moynihan, Mark Sullivan, Nick Mediati and Melissa Peterson as they discuss living in a post-iPhone 4 world before diving into the hottest news of the week.

We spend the first half of the podcast discussing the numerous hardware problems iPhone 4 owners have reported since the device was released last week. From hardware discoloration to antenna interference and a funky proximity sensor, the growing list of consumer complaints (and the looming possibility of aclass action lawsuit) leaves us flabbergasted. Has Apple tarnished their well-earned reputation as the kings of hassle-free computing?

Next up, Associate Editor Nick Mediati teases some of the test results from his exhaustive browser client comparison for an upcoming PCWorld feature. But first, we respectfully request you pause your playback in a brief a moment of silence for the Kin, Microsoft's aborted attempt at a youth-savvy social networking smartphone. Our thoughts and prayers are with those who purchased a Kin during the device's all too brief two-month lifespan.

Finally, editor Tim Moynihan takes us home on a high note with some tips and tricks to help listeners capture the perfect Fourth of July fireworks photos. We're all looking forward to enjoying the long holiday weekend here in sunny San Francisco, so make sure to pack a tripod in the trunk before you hit the barbecue and keep watching the website for the latest tech news!
