Seeing as that NO manufacturers are using it, I assume there must be some drawbacks. Here are some possibilities off the top of my head:
1) prohibitively expensive
2) not durable / scratch prone
4) needs to be thick to work properly
Now, I don't know if any of these are true but it seems safe to assume if there were no problems, it would be in use already. And certainly, if I was going to champion this solution repeatedly
, I would try to find answers to the logical questions that follow...
That does not negate the reasoning it DOES in fact exist. Having begun as an artist before moving to accounting I am aware of museum glass. Even if i were not, a perfunctory google search reveals its existence:http://www.tru-vue.com/Tru-Vue/Products/33/
As to why the manufacturers choose not to utilize it, that is a question one should ask Samsung or whomever else manufactures the Apple glossy screens.
Do not expect manufacturers to think the obvious, as you or I would, but also do not attack someone for stating it.
A perfect example would be the springboard one obtains by jail breaking an iPhone. It is of such utter common sense one wonders why it was not thought of by the apple engineers, but alas, the supposed hacking community has to show where the messiah is human.
I don't believe museum glass has caustic chemicals. If it did, all those paintings would deteriorate in short fashion.
I would assume it is scratch proof, from personal experience.
Thickness may be an apt reservation.
I don't believe it's weight would be an issue. Pictures do hang on walls, and these paintings usually weigh less than our new LCD televisions.
But to attack someone without performing your own due diligence puts one in the same caliber as the person they feel superior to by attacking them.
