As I said, it's the impression that the Apple Store is a one-stop shop for everything you need.
And my point was that if this is true I've never heard the idea expressed before, but I'll go with you for purposes of conversation it'll still be true once these items aren't for sale in the stores any more.
I think Apple is underestimating people's desire for this particular product, and they will end up undermining the overall impression of the Apple Store because of it.
Seeing as how Apple knows precisely how many of these they've sold in their stores, I'd say you're probably wrong about Apple's estimates. Whether the demand is high or low, Apple certainly knows what it is to a high degree of precision.
Okay, it's a scratchable polymer coating bonded on top of the unscratchable glass surface.
It's the "scratchable" part that you're wrong about. Let me reiterate what I said before: This "coating," for lack of a better word, is thinner than a blood cell. Not a little bit thinner either; it's much
thinner than a blood cell. You can't see it. You can't feel it. If you see a scratch on your iPhone's screen, that's a scratch in the glass,
not in the submicroscopically invisible chemical layer on top of the glass.
I appreciate the detail with which you explained the process, btw
Hey, no prob. I googled it up 'cause I was curious, found it interesting, and subsequently ran into an excuse to share.
