Time to fix the cracks

Apparently the screen isn’t cracked, it’s “webbed”. There is a certain coolness factor associated with a cracked screen now, but what else can people do? This is a design fault. People use smart phones and tablets a lot. They hold them, they carry them in their bags, pencil cases and pockets. My phone screen just cracked by being in a not overly full bag – in fact in was in a padded pocket in a nearly empty bag and travelled to work in comfort in my car. Somehow it cracked. The solution for me was to buy a new phone because it was cheaper than having it repaired which they didn’t want to do anyway. Don’t you just love apathy? That’s partly the problem. People look at expedience and profit. Phones and tablets are not properly designed for the job they are expected to do. Were it a car screen , a TV screen or a window in your house ,watch, you’d be horrified. Tablet and phone screens crack far too easily. Yes, people are going to get knocked. Their bags are going to get squashed. They are going to just let the tablet slip off their lap or fall out of their hands. Silly people. So then you are looking at maybe 200 dollars or more for a new screen depending on the device. Easy money. Additional cost on top of what was probably a pretty high outlay in the first place. Maybe insurance will cover it. Maybe not. Doesn’t actually solve the design fault. The science behind shattering screens is here in this article from the Daily Mail. Science is a wonderful thing. The designers need to get onto it. Apparently Samsung is working on it but someone I know just cracked the screen on their beloved Samsung Galaxy III. We need stronger, more durable screens which are designed with people in mind and how they will use their product. It really is time to fix this issue.
