So, being the very clumsy fellow I am, I was at a bar with my brand new iPhone and put it through an inadvertant torture test. I dropped it on a concrete floor from about four feet. Currious of the effects? I'm posting this with it. There are only two, hardly visible scratches at all. It still looks amazing. I have a black 8 gig and you would be hard pressed to see the marks. I feel stupid but I was bummped into and at least I have a good phone.
