“Liquidmetal” LOL I think that is like “Sapphire Screens” – it just didn’t work out like they thought it would. I would like to know the “backstory” on why we never saw anything from it (other than one part…what was it a rocker arm?”
You have no idea what you are talking about.
Like the Apple TV that’s really a TV?
So is the current one. They just haven’t announced it as a feature. Stupid SO dropped it in the t bowl, came out working fine, just a little smelly.
And you’re gonna eBay it as a barely used mint iPhone, aren’t you?This is exactly why I don’t buy used c**p from eBay. You just never know where it’s been.
They better be waterproof. I’m getting sick of watching my nephew go swimming with his Samsung. It’s pretty amazing, and long overdue.
Waterproof iPhone needed when Apple fanboys piss themselves when Apple stock devalues…..again.
Hiding lightning and headphone ports from water is the most fun part, I imagine. I doubt it would be a ‘diving’ iPhone.
