In the past 2+ months, during which I’ve had iPhone 5 I’ve noticed that I tend to touch and hold it more often, just for the sake of it. And I realized that this is because I really like the feeling I get from the way it in my hand. With my previous one, iPhone 4, I’ve done the same, but the reason was the feeling I got from looking at screen, not by the form and the materials. The screen is still something to be marvelled at, but paired with the latest iPad, I got kind of accustomed to Retina displays.
Now, if I can only get my hands on Surface Pro…

This is something that will ultimately be expected from any mass market product to have, just like now we have schematics for most of our electronics. We should be not only able to reproduce and repair the internals, but also to print the externals of the products we buy in order to customize or repair them. And when the latest and greatest 3D printer cost less than $3000, it should become reality sooner rather than later.
