People are going to need to be very creative when designing cases for the iPhone. It'll be a huge market, just like iPod accessories.
Nicely failed use of sarcasm. I guess you haven't actually watched the keynote, or at least if you have you haven't really
paid attention. I find first hand sources to be wonderful for backing up my positions.
OBTW: Download it from iTunes and scrub to 42:00, then watch the demos: the smudges when the glare is just right, the smudges not seen when the glare is not on axis. You get to see that over a good half dozen shots full screen.
While I didn't "talk" to Steve, he sure as hell talked to me. He talked to you too, but you have decided to not listen yet.
As for throw it in your pocket and go, sure, it will work that way just fine. If you want to keep it pristine as many folks might, you can't be a moron about it. That's common sense.
