Brooklyn Natives Invent Antenna-aid for iPhone 4

July 22, 2010

When the iPhone 4 was released June 24th, a lot of people lost their minds. All three of the official Apple Stores in Manhattan had lines around the block from their Midtown East location at 767 Fifth Avenue to their Chelsea location at 401 West 14th Street and their Upper West Side location at 1981 Broadway.

Problems with the iPhone emboldened competitors like the Google Nexus One, the HTC Evo 4G, the Blackberry Bold 9700, and the HTC Droid Eris, and everything from special phone covers to duct tape has offered a solution to the antenna problem.

One product that has been selling particularly well has been the Antenna-aid produced by Brooklyn designers Szymon Weglarski and Jon Dorfman. A six-pack sells for $4.99 from their website http://antenn-aid.com/. Their tongue-in-cheek ad claims that the Antenna-aid is “colorful,” “works like magic,” and is so revolutionary that “Ben Franklin would approve.”
