Good Idea: Great Cell Reception Indoors

It's always been annoying that a device that (usually) works so well inside, can suck on toast when you bring inside. I read an article from Tom's Hardware about an upcoming family of products that finally lets you use your phone in the location where man has been trying to spend more time in thousands of years --- inside. The product from SignalWide is essentially a glorified repeater. It takes the crap signal you'd usually be getting from your carrier and amplifies it so your phone can get more than one bar. The product also works in reverse, which lets your phone throttle down its output power and lets the battery last longer. Pricing isn't available yet, so I'm sure that will determine how helpful SignalWide will be with more people ditching their landlines.
