Unless...these scratches which just appeared have a paranormal explanation!
I believe somebody was in another thread posting about how silly Apple was to pursue scratch resistant sapphire screens when Gorilla Glass is obviously already more shatterproof. /s
"Seems funny that airbags and seatbelt are considered so important for a car.In all the decades I've owned a car, I don't recall ever crashing it."Same flawgic.
I wonder how much it costs to have these guys advertise the features of my product, masquerading as an episode of MythBusters?
Oh snap! (That's OK, BI had it coming)
One man's Shin getting kicked is another man's Boon.I never felt insulted. That Samsung portrays itself as hip and cool in the bizarro universe of its own advertisements is neither surprising nor realistic.

I always liked how computer monitor resolutions were cut and dried: 1600x1200 means exactly that. No dicking around with tricky marketing terms to...
 "Drat! Double drat! Triple drat! Muttley, these silly ads are your fault!"
They don't exist.Radio Shack, that is.
