New word, for me, regarding diamond vapor films in Wikipedia: lipophilia. Normally, touchscreens want to be lipophobic, of course.Very interesting field. I wasn't aware of it. Carbon rocks! My favorite element.
That's right. I seem to remember a "U" shape with that bendable Gorilla Glass.
You can always tell when you're going off the rails when you start commenting BEFORE the quote that you're responding to. The reader has to stop reading what you're saying, then skip down to what you're going on about, then go back to what you're saying, over and over when you multiquote.What you say may not be worth that much bother.Then you throw in a stupid Fox News stinker like the "Whitehouse dictator" remark.

I suppose it will also sense your biometrics to know what it's strapped around. If it's anchored to you, then a lot of other things you carry could be anchored to it—keys, wallet, reading or sunglasses, etc. This alone would make a wrist device worth wearing for someone as absent-minded as me..
How did I manage to forget about dr blank already?
Interesting post. Thanks.
