The iPhone is made of aluminosilicate glass. Apple says it’s “chemically strengthened to be 20 times stiffer and 30 times harder than plastic” and it’s “ultradurable and more scratch resistant than ever.” Well, not enough to survive a 3.5-foot drop. More

Witheringly described as a “A family-friendly Android phone with an awesome Sidekick-y keyboard, or, much like its name, a godawful conglomeration of disjointed parts,” the HTC myTouch 3G Slide was pegged early as a midrange, or even budget, phone (“Family friendly” being the official euphemism for such things). Nonetheless, it’ll be priced up with the big boys, at $180 on contract with T-Mobile, starting June 2nd. [ AndroidGuys ] More

In the future, people looking for “holistic, ultra-green lifestyle” will live in dreamy wonderlands like Lace Hill —a beautiful, elvish-like, completely self-suficient gigantic “biomorphic spatial surface”. Good. I’ll keep surviving on cocktails and pizza in Gotham City.
