Let your iPhone 4 signal LiveStrong with a bracelet

Amidst all the iPhone 4 antenna/signal drama, there exists at least one man who instead of complaining (though he rightfully could), has decided to take matters into his own hands.  Oliver Nelson, after losing signal simply by gripping his iPhone 4 in his hand came up with a way to save himself a heap of frustration, and $30 at the same time.  Instead of going out and purchasing a bumper from Apple, Nelson found that a bracelet (much like the original LiveStrong bracelets that became popular "back in the day") would stretch around the phone causing just the right conduction-break needed to improve signal strength.  Add to it a few small incisions and your iPhone 4 is now fully functional again, how about that.  It may not be perfect, but it's certainly a worthy solution in the interim, as we wait to see how Apple and AT&T will handle their current predicament.  Anyone planning on donating a dollar to a worthy cause and simultaneously rendering your iPhone 4 usable again?  Let us know!
