Apple Really, Really Clever

From AppleInsider: Apple iPad 3G uses the LCD Frame as a 3G antenna. This is an amazingly clever design. I wonder how many other tricks people use for laptop and portable antennas? Getting a really high signal quality out of a small device typically requires you to either be deviously clever (like this) or give the user instructions along the lines of "Whatever you do, don't touch this!" Score one for Apple. Too bad I'm not interested in an iPad.
