Apple It's one of those days again: Apple held a product announcement today, announcing several new products. The most important of which was rumoured about for a long time now: a smaller iPad. It's called the iPad mini, and has the potential to become the best-selling iPad - and thus, the best selling tablet.

High impact polymers ie "plastic" is not cheap crap. It is actually the optimum case material for phones and tablets. Aluminium and glass are the real "crap" materials - glass is heavy and structurally weak and aluminium scrathes and dents easily.
[...] highly compromised designs that perform badly and lack durability.

Worse, glass & aluminium feel unpleasantly cold to the touch ...here, used in a device you're supposed to hold in your hands, WTH?

I hated my Nokia E50 for that reason, don't want to get anything metal-clad any more. It baffles me that people seem to love it (or does fashion overrule ~hate?)
