I only had it a couple of times when Mavericks first came out. It was habit for me to push the power button (17" 2011 MacBook Pro) to bring up the options box and turn if off. Took a little bit of time to get rid of that habit. I just think it was dumb to even introduce it.
Changed the power button behavior from touching and going to sleep to touching and nothing happens. You have to press for one second to go to sleep and about 3 to get the options dialog box. Excellent.
I'd just do what other TV shows do like The Big Bang Theory. They only partially cover the logo. Put a Mac sticker on it, or an iOS sticker. Then some athletes should cover the Samsung logo on their garbs...lol.
Well it can't be just taller, that would make it too hard for smaller hands to reach the top of the screen. It won't be a 5 inch phone. I am thinking 4.3 with a thin bezel like the iPad Air and iPad Mini.
