I've been watching case manufacturers develop products for various mobile devices over the years and I keep asking myself if they're really just plain stupid when it comes to designing cases with exposed corners. If any rational person were to actually watch any rectangular object fall, you'll see that a corner of said object will impact the ground first almost 100% of the time. Even if it somehow seems to fall flat on its side, the odds of that happening are minimal. So, why do so many manufacturers create cases with exposed corners? Thankfully, I'm smarter than that and I vote with my wallet, but I'm sorely disappointed in a lot of nice designs I had to pass on because of a designer's incompetence. If you work for a case manufacturer, I'd be really interested to understand your logic or lack thereof. Or, if you have any input in your company, I strongly urge you to send this up the chain until it resonates with someone who can see the common sense in this. We now return you to your regularly scheduled program.
