    Hahaha, CNN. Why would you seriously use that much duct tape? If you have to use more than a few millimeters, just put a damn case on it.

    Sheesh.

    It's bad when CNN and consumer reports are trolling.

    Not trolling, but sensationalism and cheap shots. I mean come on, they act like you need to wear an oven mitt or use duct tape when obviously a case, which the majority of iPhone owners use anyway, isn't an alternative to duct tape, and just a tad more reasonable? It's sensationalistic reporting at it's finest.

    They're trolling for hits on their website. It's the new journalism.

    It's not new...they'll say anything to get people's attention. Always been that way. It's how you sell. They probably know all their is to know about the problem, and that you could just use a CASE to fix it, but no. They picked the more sensational story. It's so...aggravating.

    So Consumer Reports shouldn't have reviewed the iPhone or just said good things?

    How did Consumer Reports test the phone incorrectly?

    Why use a case when the duct tape is cheaper and seems to work just as well?

    Ok, you could just buy a case... which on a phone with this much glass, and after the 10,000 threads in the last 3 weeks about "I dropped my iphone and the glass shattered" you'd think people would wisen up and do ANYHOW!
