$50 iPhone case boosts Wi-Fi signal by 50%

Having a protective iPhone case is a great idea, but having a protective iPhone case that also adds some kind of extra functionality is even wiser. One such case is the new Linkase, made by a company called Absolute. The neat thing about it is that it can boost the smartphone's Wi-Fi signal reception, thus making sure you have a fast, solid connection to Wi-Fi networks.
The magic lies in the electro magnetic waveguide (EMW) module, which resonates with the iPhone's Wi-Fi antenna when extended. According to the accessory's maker, that will boost Wi-Fi reception by up to 50%.
Unfortunately, the Linkase is not available at the moment, but it should launch within a month or two. The accessory will retail for about $50 and will come in 5 different colors.
Yeah, just imagine how you'd look when talking on the phone.

No more ridiculous than holding a sgs3 or note I imagine.

Well if you're going to say the SGS3, you might as well include the Droid DNA, HTC One, Nexus 4, Lumia 920, etc., but I can agree with you one the Note. I use to own the Note 2 and it was quite odd holding that phone to my ear. I would mostly talk on it using my earphones.
