Fix your iPhone 4's antenna 'boo-boo' with Antenn-aid
If you don't want to conceal your iPhone's beauty inside a case, you can fix its antenna "owie" with these cute little adhesive strips.
So many harsh words have been thrown around to describe the iPhone 4's antenna problems. Crisis! Disaster! Antennagate! But let's not overstate the issue: the iPhone has a boo-boo, and as every parent knows, nothing fixes a boo-boo like a Band-Aid.
Or, in this case, an Antenn-Aid. That's the name given to a six-pack of familiar-looking adhesive strips designed to cover the tiny gap that's causing so much trouble.
In other words, yeah, they're Band-Aids for your iPhone.
Cute? Yes. Clever? Definitely. Effective? Though "intended for entertainment purposes only," there's every reason to believe the Antenn-Aids will solve the reception problem (which occurs when your palm or fingers cover that gap).
After all, that's what cases and bumpers do. In fact, so does applying a simple strip of tape. (Readto learn more.) So this is no doubt unnecessary for anyone who already has a case--or a roll of Scotch tape.
But it's still an amusing little conversation starter, and I think the $4.99 price tag (not including shipping, which adds a buck) is more than reasonable. The pack includes six different colors.
In case you're wondering, I found these on Etsy (by way of Gizmodo), home to all kinds of way-cool accessories--like the awesome .
What do you think of the Antenn-Aid? Cute, or just silly?
