Though they do recommend a little duct tape

After first insisting the iPhone 4's antenna problems weren't serious
, Consumer Reports has completed testing
of the iPhone 4 and won't be recommending it to users. While the site lauds the phone for having a great video camera and screen -- their engineers confirmed that nasty attenuation issue that results in dropped signal strength simply by holding the device. The Consumer Reports testing (see video
) confirms other recent tests by Anandtech
, showing how users in average to poor cell coverage locations are the ones being bitten by the design flaw Apple seems content to pretend doesn't exist
. The good news? Consumer Reports notes that the design flaw can be helped with just a little duct tape.

I felt a great disturbance in the
Force Duct Tape... as if millions of voices iPhone 4's suddenly cried out in terror dropped bars and suddenly silenced dropped a call.

Duct Tape is like The Force...
It has a Light side and a Dark side, and it holds the Universe together....
And the Apple fanatics can get their Duct Tape in designer colors to match their phone or mood! --
