    Apple said in a statement the following:

    Given all this, it's surprising that Apple has made it clear in instructions it issued to its telephone reps (and leaked to The Boy Genius Report) that it has no intention of offering free Bumpers to customers who complain about their iPhone 4's signal loss.

    Interesting part:

    "The stainless steel band that surrounds the iPhone 4 and serves as its antenna, Klug writes, is better than other cell phones', even with all the attenuation."

    I must be missing something, all I get from this article is what we already know, except they're just using numbers instead of bars.

    This attenuation varies of course, and often leads to dropped calls. So in that sense, it nulls out the fact that then antenna is better.
