    During the keynote speech, is it possible that the reason the wifi wasn't working was as simple as Steve Jobs was holding the iPhone incorrectly and shorting out the antenna?

    Just something I was thinking about today...

    I don't think the problem is with the wifi antenna but with the 3G antenna because in the videos I have seen some people have been on wifi and it didn't affect it. It is surely possible but it seems that the problem is contained with 3G and not wifi.

    I have read that antenna handles most of the iPhones reception including bluetooth, not sure about wifi though.. As I said it was just a thought, I may have to revisit the keynote and see is el jobso is holding the iPhone in the correct Apple approved finger stance

    The antenna does cover wifi I believe and it is a good thought!

    That would be really funny if that was the reason

    he was holding it the same way later on when
    it worked, after devs turned off their MyFi
    devices.

    but was he holding it correctly or was he shorting out the antenna...a 1/2 inch can make a difference to my understanding
