    yeah cnets description is wrong the conductive foam pad doesn't block the interference, in the picture it's placed right over the copper trace antenna. since any conductive material placed directly over an emitting device acts as a second antenna,
    it doesn't matter about the solder mask since the foam was placed directly over the copper trace. you could have the same effect if you were to buy copper foil tape with a conductive adhesive and place it over the copper trace.

    the only time it would block a signal is if it were placed further apart and grounded or surrounded like a faraday cage.

    you could partially obstruct interference but it would have to be a narrow strip placed between
    the box and the copper trace.
    since there's not enough of a gap to obstruct interference
    it would probably just act like an antenna for the part giving off interference if you tried placing it between the two.

    Not sure if anyone else has said this but my switch "forgot" there was a update after I put it on airplane mode and fully shut it off (not sleep mode). Now it finally stops bugging me to update every time I resume zelda.

    Also for those who are on 2.1.0, I doubt this but, does video playback now work via the dns method?

    Yeah I was getting the update nag before I cleared my wifi settings and did a full power cycle, now there's no nag. At least it does give you the option to update rather than forcing it, but it highlights "start update" by default rather than cancel or start software. So it's pretty easy to accidentally click through to the update if you're not paying much attention, and that's why I think I'll just keep it offline for now.

    You must have auto updates turned on under settings.
