Hahaha, new case idea for the white iPhone 5C: "The Prism case", let the white of your iPhone shine through and show you the colorful rainbow of what's inside.Yes, that's exactly what I meant. Shine some "white" light through a prism and you get a colourful rainbow.
Huh. From what I remember from physics class, white is supposed to be the presence of all colors while black is the absence of color.
Well, I guess I am actually referring to the pigments themselves. White pigments have no color since they reflect all light, while black pigments absorb them all. The color white, however, actually is the presence of all colors as you stated. My mistake.Huh. From what I remember, white is supposed to be the presence of all colors while black is the absence of color.
people: additive lighting vs. subtractive lighting.
white IS the presence of all colors (as all stage hands know). if we are talking about additive lighting.
for those of us using crayons, on the other hand, yes, what you might very well get if mashed the ones in your Crayola box of 72 would be, black.
ps: we can only HOPE that iPhone 6c comes in Lime, or, Copper.
Or people buy it because they like the design/materials more and look for more neutral colors that are available, which is really only white (since they didn't make a black version).I have two close friends with an iPhone 5C, both of them are white. Both of them have white phones too (see what I did there?). I guess it's just for boring people who buy a 5C just for the value.
Others have already touched on this.You got that precisely the wrong way round. Black is the absence of colour.
In the visible spectrum, white reflects light and is a presence of all colors, but black absorbs light and is an absence of color.

Pigments and the colors of light we see are pretty much exactly the opposite when referring to the color of an object. It's all in the context. A white pigment has no color, which is what is used in the coloring of the phone case. However, since a white pigment has no color it reflects white light which is composed of every visible color, so the phone case is all the colors!
As Kyotoma said, that is physics 101. Maybe learn to read the rest of the posts before commenting as others could have pointed out something similar and this is just a redundant post.
I'm not upset, just pointing out how narrowsighted your opinion is. Wikipedia is a great resource, but no person looking for a credible opinion would go there.Don't get upset because you got it wrong. Go update the science section of Wikipedia if you think you're right.
