    Hmmmm this sounds familiar. Material that is supposed to be stronger than its counterpart. Didn't Apple say that about the glass surface on the iPhone 4. And yet as soon as you drop it...syonara. Helicopter glass?

    So in theory I should be able to grab a rock....hurl it at an Apache front glass and it should bust right through and nail the pilot square in the forehead no? I mean if this helicopter glass can break from a 4 foot drop with no acting forces other than gravity...then the theory should be plausible no?

    Somehow I think this "new" "revolutionary" technology is just more over-hyped bull for Apple to sell more product.

    But I could be wrong. We'll see if they actually mean business this time.

    Apple is trying to keep the "metal Housing" without the machining, and into the molding process for faster and more efficient production, like plastics.. Besides Liquid metal is already being used in phones, and its not really liquid metal. Its hard at room temp. It's just a move to keeping the metal look with apples laptops, iphones, pads, pods etc. Cooling wont change. But if apple is brave it will challenge the worlds makers of pc's and other gadgets to compete with a lower price, if they lower the price..

    I think they will milk the profits til' the market curves to the trend of lm.

    Id rather have a carbon fiber housed phone any day.
    Peace.

    I let her have the iPhone 4 since that's what she wanted. She didn't want to upgrade from 2G since 10/2007 because there really wasn't a difference between that and the 3G. Besides, by the time the 3GS came out, the iPhone 4 was announced shortly thereafter. I'll probably end up getting the white iPhone 4 if it ever comes out. If not, I'll just wait for iPhone 5. LOL!

    It's all about respecting the shortcomings and understanding the capabilities. I can still use the apps, which is all that I am concerned about in the first place. I'm merely pointing out the hype that Apple puts into their products when everyone else has been doing what they *just* started doing recently, i.e. video, camera, etc.
