    For $70 you'd need a screen protector for that screen protector.

    Isn't a whole new screen like $99?

    Just ordered 3 protectors for $10. Even the 3M privacy screen is only like $30.

    It blows my mind how it installs itself bubble-free.

    looks cool and all, but for 70$... if it's not bullet proof then hell no.

    I'd much sooner buy the $99 AppleCare Plus and replace the whole damn thing in two years for $50.

    I had to check the date of the post to see if it was created on April 01! For the price it better be bullet proof.

    If the iphone protector is priced 28$ then its pretty self explanatory that the surface of such a large glass would equal in 2-3 times more the price of his smaller brother. This price is surely not an april fools. If its less tending to have fingerprints because of the olephobic coating, then this is certainly a plus. But screwing up the installation can be a big :eek: :eek: :D

    Don't think so as the flap looks different. The one in the video has a somewhat pointed flap where the diary showed a straight edge flap.

    That price is just nuts.
    I have to admit though the self installation was kind of cool.

    I think that this would be worth it if it was anti-reflective glass, so that you could get anti-glare without any of the major or minor distortion (depending on the brand) of other anti-glare films.

    But I also don't know much about anti-reflective glass or how affective it is or what it costs or anything else to be making any sort of terribly productive product suggestions.

    Still, you know… something to consider. Unless it isn't.

    Applecare is $100 and you would get a whole NEW ipad if you scratched your screen.

    Not to mention this thing has a totally exposed edge that sits above the iPad frame and is easily fractured- see the iLounge review of the iPhone protector- failed inside of a month.
