Well, that should be a good title...
As Steve Jobs pointed out, the black line where the weakness exists unfortunately is a large sign. The weak spots on other phones must be found. And then, there's just because people hate Apple, Inc...
Some of you may not remember that several years ago, numerous people were complaining about brain cancer caused by mobile phones. There again, people on the hit the mobile phone companies side were incredulous that they couldn't hold a phone with the antenna touching their head boosting the radiation to their heads.
The iPhone 4 has similar risks. If you hold the phone to your head at an angle where the antenna contacts your head, I suspect an increased cancer risk. The odd cancer exposure would be wearing one on a belt clip while exposing ones spare tire.
The most funny to test one requires a sufficiently well-endowed lady volunteer. Place iPhone 4 in their favorite hiding spot with at least the bar display still visible. The bars should drop just like a Death Grip, maybe a bit less depending on how firmly the subject body parts compress the phone. This location would also increase radiation exposure in that area and we know about the Breast Cancer Claims industry.
For non-iPhone 4 phones, just wedge between clothing and body. Saw a well-endowed lady with a tight low-cut blouse wedge her phone between her bosom and the neckline once at AT&T Park.
