WiFi Antenna Booster increases the range of your WiFi signals

Posted in Wi-Fi by Conner Flynn on November 21st, 2010

This WiFi Antenna Booster looks like it is lit up to announce a blue-light special. Just attach it to your router and it will boost your networking signal exponentially in every way possible. There’s no need for software installation or reconfiguration.

The Signal Boosting Wi-Fi Antenna comes equipped with a flexible gooseneck that positions the antenna in an upright position for optimal signal reception. Yes, it looks dorky, but if it does what it promises, who cares? You can purchase the Signal Boosting Wi-Fi Antenna for only $59.95.

Posted in iPhone by Conner Flynn on October 18th, 2010

Remember that white colored iPhone 4 that showed up in NY? Well, it could have been an invisible shield casing since the image above shows a black line which could be the black antenna bar that has been cut into the metal, moved or included in the middle right above the micro SIM slot to help with the poor reception issues.

This photo could be the new location for the antenna break-out so that the “death grip” problems will go away.

4th-gen iPod touch teardown reveals stealth antenna

Posted in iPod Touch by Conner Flynn on September 8th, 2010

The folks at iFixit continued their investigation of the latest round of iPods with a teardown of the fourth-generation iPod touch. They went deeper than the FCC teardown, and confirmed that the Wi-Fi antenna has been moved to the front, eliminating the need for the black plastic window on that earlier models had. It also shows that Apple is using Toshiba flash memory for the main storage on the iPod; other Apple devices usually use Samsung.

The A4 processor model number is the same one as in the iPad and confirms that it’s using 256MB of RAM. The iPhone 4 has a different label to indicate that it has 512MB. The headphone jack is removable for the first time, and there’s a gap around the battery that simplifies removal.

Now we have more drama in the Apple antenna saga. Bloomberg says that someone “familiar with the matter” claims Apple’s own antenna expert, Ruben Caballero, told Apple management that the iPhone 4 antenna design could cause problems and dropped calls.

Caballero is a senior engineer for Apple who holds many antenna patents under his belt. We don’t know the whole story but it is the latest twist to this sorted tale and suggests that Steve Jobs had been alerted to this problem during the design phase.

ColorWare has been making your gadgets unique and beautiful for awhile now, but when it comes to the iPhone 4, it may help more than with just looks. They’re trying to confirm it, but their process might include fixing the device’s death-grip.

You know the drill, you pick out a color scheme, give ColorWare $250, send them your iPhone 4, and wait. You will get your iPhone 4 with a nice paint job and maybe that signal-killing death grip will be a thing of the past. Maybe.

Posted in Apple by Conner Flynn on June 30th, 2010

Why is Apple hiring antenna engineers? I thought we were holding it wrong. According to several job postings, Apple is looking for Antenna Engineers, with the job definition including “Define and implement antenna system architecture to optimize the radiation performance for wireless portable devices.”

The postings were made on June 23rd, about the same time that folks started noticing the iPhone 4’s antenna issues. Thing is, they had engineers already that should have caught this.

As you have heard by now, iPhone 4 owners are having reception issues when the phone is held in a certain way. Apple released an official statement which basically told users not to hold their iPhone 4 in this way. Then Steve laughed and went back to counting money.

When Rory Sinclair emailed Apple’s CEO, Steve Jobs, he was told that he was holding his iPhone 4 wrong. Full exchange below.


Radio Valerie has sleek curves, smokes an antenna

Radio Valerie has sleek curves, smokes an an antennaRadio Valerie, designed by Valentin Vodev, is a radio concept that is at the same time sultry and silly. Sultry thanks to it’s curves, silly because I swear it looks like this thing is smoking an antenna or has an antenna thermometer.

You can fully control the radio without having using buttons or switches, since the antenna acts as your control stick to find stations, and a speaker up top can be turned to control the volume. I don’t know, it looks like a dancing cigarette butt.
