    When I hold down the black line on top of my iPhone 4 my wifi signal decreases.

    If I am holding the line on the bottom right and then go into maps it misplaces my location by over 3 miles. As soon as I release my finger it instantly fines my location. Same with the wifi.

    Anyone else want to try this?

    Steve Jobs tried this at WWDC, that's why his demo failed

    I suggest not lightly stroking the exterior of your phone with your index finger.
