I haven’t been bitten by the smartphone bug, but I was intrigued to read on techcrunch.com about Apple’s patent application for all-glass devices mimicking sci-fi movie and TV props. All-glass iPhones would be durable and light; ribs and reinforcements are made of glass and the Retina Cinema Display is guaranteed to hook consumers eager to impress. Since I’m a klutz, glass isn’t likely an investment I’ll make if I finally go to the dark side, surrender my flip phone and become a smartphone slave. That said, did I mention that these glass devices can make phone calls, too? Just sayin’.
