    I have yet to see V2A that shows any signs of corrosion. If you've seen aluminium pipes used for fixing satellite disks to buildings that have been outside for 30 years you'll know what I mean.

    So I can apply chromium to my underwear and they become stainless! I'm going to apply for a patent right now. BRB/AFK.

    I remember cheap third party chromium plated steel car bumpers/fenders used to rust pretty damn promptly if left out in the rain. Perhaps they were rusting through from the inside - I never took them off to check - or maybe they weren't actually plated with chromium.

    The important piece of information that was missing is that another essential component of proper stainless steel is nickel. Being coated instead of being part of the actual alloy makes a difference as well.

    I need like a grenade or something to help us get offtopic. Just a reminder that this is an official news thread.

    So, yeah, if there are bare aluminum logo plates I will take one. I am also considering sanding one if I need to, or a custom plate in copper.

    They do not, however, become skidless.

    But at least they'll render HTML5 rock-solid, so you've got that going for you at least.

    The e-ink screen would be much more useful than any camera tiny enough to fit in that cavity.

    An eink handset that could be used as a bluetooth monitor & dialer by itself with velcro or a few magnets to clip it to the cover maybe?

    as a dialer, an e-ink screen wouldn't feel very responsive. but interesting idea...

    That's not what I was aiming for, but it's not a bad extension on the idea. Why bluetooth instead of WiDi? Also, if you were going to make it detachable, velcro is a horrible option. Magnets are ok, but I'd suggest just give it a mechanism that locks it in place using plastic. Kind of like deadbolts on a door.

    Wow - talk about timing. They put too much into it and made it too expensive IMHO. But, what I imagined above is this without the phone parts but with the ability to mirror the screen of what is on my min phone/device/pyra/other and send mouse (via relative/mouse touchscreen) and send/receive audio.
