That would require two custom bezel-less panels (as they would both have to form a 16x9 screen), one of them touch enabled, significantly increasing the costs.

They had better not leave any large sticks laying around or there will be mayhem in the streets.

To look perfect. Clearly they weren't looking for "perfection" - which is fine. So they panels wouldn't need/require custom bezel-less panels.

They made design choices. Some people don't like them. That's all. But they are entitled to state that the object doesn't represent the iPhone.

I was merely responding to those people who were criticizing the design and calling the authors of this monument stupid. It is obvious why they went with this design and not another.

And you missed the point entirely..there was no condemnation in the post Marx wasn't even Russian..The iphone is built by virtual slave labor where the workers share none of the profits of their labor. Apple produce a piece of throwaway junk to sell to fat Westerners that will replace in 18 to 24 months. Marx and Lenin would should both be rolling over in their graves, junk capitalism memorialized in the birth place of the counter idea.
