Don't you wish someone had the courage to tell the Emperor he's naked? What am I talking about? Curved smartphone screens. Think about it -- over the last few months, there's been a lot of chatter about Apple, Samsung, LG and others getting ready to launch smartphones with curved screens. Sounds cool, but what the heck is the point? Am I missing something? After all, companies are all excited about offering this, and the media seems excited to write about it. The problem is they're all saying the same thing: They don't get it either.

I guess you've never face muted or hung up on someone when you're cheek touched an iPhone. Not to mention make-up and other smudging that a curved (presumably concave) screen would help with.
