Buying an Apple product does not make you a "fanboi". It makes you a customer. Still, a customer should not be told to hold their phone in an unnatural way.

I'm sorry but that is really distasteful. Laughing about someone having cancer is about as low as you can go.
Sorry for the dual post, but I just checked the Photo on the top, the antenna should NOT BE in a place which can be easily blocked by a hand.... I mean it's stupid from the research group, it's a must to avoid this kind of situations. Of course that if you put the damn antenna next to the place where the phone is usually hold the signal is gonna be jammed...
Are those replies really from Steve Jobs? I thought he was supposed to have some affable charisma that makes people want to buy Apple products. I'm not seeing it.
At any rate, I conducted a test with a WinMo phone and a Nokia 5800xm. I can complete cover either with both my hands so that my skin is touch practically every outer surface of the phones. Neither phone of them loses signal. So, Apple's response that "all phones" lose some attenuation in antenna performance is a FAR cry from their phone completely losing its signal from modestly (and properly) holding their phone.

No one is laughing at Steve for having cancer. I believe the poster was commenting on what it would have been like for Steve if his Doctors took the same approach to solving a situation that he does. Steve's response was basically a big "F-You". I'm pretty sure Steve wouldn't have appreciated hearing something similar after being diagnosed with cancer.
And no, a crappy cell phone isn't as bad a cancer, but just be glad Steve's not your oncologist.
What a joke - a first rate "take the spit" moment for all these Apple lovers! Maybe Apple should release a diagram showing the proper way of holding a phone... It's not really Apple's fault that poeple use their hands to hold up a phone... Seriously though, can you see any other company responding to such an issue with "Just don't hold it that way then." - just imagine if I wrote Honda to say that my shift stick doesn't work and they replied "Just don't hold it that way then." - you must be a real douche to buy anything from Apple ever again. Steve Jobs, what a nasty little rat.
