I'm not a cell phone user so maybe that's why I don't understand how
a shielded trouser pocket will protect you when talking on a cell

has an antenna with a ground plane. This could potentially occupy the
fashion industry for years as they hash out how to integrate form and
function (Want more bandwidth in your beanie?)...
