Your show commented about how brilliant the iPhone 4 antennae placement was when designing the phone. I hope you follow up on this, since there is now proof that holding the phone in your left hand reduces the reception and in some cases drops calls (see enGadget). In my opinion, this is a disastrous design flaw, especially since I hold a phone in my left hand since I am right handed. This leads me to believe, in typical Apple fashion, they already knew about the reception problem, spurring the inclusion of the rubber bumbers to put around the phone. The media and Apple portrayed the rubber bumber as a protective accessory, when it is clearly included as a fix to stop dropped calls.
