A friend of mine just discovered a way to cut out the so-called "glassy" issue. Both he believed that there was a way to truly make the MacBook Pro work, no matter how difficult it was to put up with the irritating glassy screen. I didn't believe that he could come up with anything. Especially since he tried to calibrate the screen twice and even tried working in a very dark room. Which of course was very inconvenient and troubling to do that everyday. So just tonight he came up with a solution that was so simple and idiotic, yet very brilliant. He decides to cover the black border around the screen with automotive blue tape and other materials similar. Stupid as this may sound. It was a very affordable and somewhat fashion success. The screen is not so glassy anymore and it protects the sides from minor scratches. On top of that you don't have to worry about finger prints getting to the shiny borders either. Just take a look at the pictures and let me know what you think. Sorry that some of the pictures are upside down.
