    New iPhone 6 is very... bendy...

    Wowza. Look at that sucker bend...

    http://www.neowin.net/news/bentgate-apple-iphone-6-plus-owners-complain-that-their-handsets-are-bending

    That is not good. Lots of reports of people having the phone bend after it being in their pocket and sitting down.

    Time to start blaming skinny jeans?

    And no, you can't charge your iPhone 6 in a microwave...

    WAVE CHARGING!!! That's pretty funny.

    Also funny that the phone is bendy.

    Didn't RIM announce something today that you should be pumping, Shabbs?

    If BlackBerry does not release a new flagship full touch screen, I'll be jumping to an S6 or even a Note4.

    A bendable phone is coming. Apple are just ahead of the times. And, apparently, ahead of the current materials.

    Remember the transparent aluminum from Star Trek 4 (Voyage Home)? Well they need Scotty to travel back and share with them the molecular formula of flexible aluminum.

    You saw the phones in Extant? Basically looked like a screen protector but they CGId a phone display over the surface. It wouldn't surprise me much if we see something similar to that in 10-15 years. Maybe even a lot sooner.

    We're getting close to that Prager, that's for sure. Flexible dispalys will happen. They have curved phones already and the Samsung Note Edge is coming...

    Not too far away...

    Flexible display is the start but they also have a long way to go to minuarize things to the point of the phone being 1-2 mm thick.
