Simple fix: liquid nitrogen cooling.

Nice, so the next batch of reports will be about people's digits being frozen off due to liquid nitrogen leaks.

Not instantly. And not quite as fast as you would think.

Tried it, and now my iPhone 4S back panel is full of droplet blemishes. Please don't follow this man's advice. I am contacting MacRumors to get his details so I can sue. :rolleyes:

Please remember to pull the pin before you throw your battery case.
