Apple may be facing another design issue with the iPhone 4 -- or not. Apple engineers are trying to solve a potentially big problem, according to GDGT's Ryan Block. The use of slip-on cases made for the iPhone 4 can cause scratches on its glass back panel that eventually could lead to cracks and even shattering, Block reported, based on information he received from sources inside and outside of the company. Particles of debris can get caught between the rear of the phone and the case, causing the scratches that could eventually fracture the glass, he explained.

Apple too focused about design

Apple used to make some pretty durable products. But lately they seem more concerned about design. This first started for me when that NY Times ad appeared and the guy used a iPad to swat a fly. As we all know the glass in the iPad broke.
We all know different materials stress differently. Plastic cracks, Aluminum dents, and Glass breaks.

I love to bash apple and iPhone sheep phenomena as much as the next guy but seriously dust scratching the back of the phone which may potentially one day possibly maybe break the glass? give me a break.

Just the facts please…
