    Article title is disingenuous. It should read "Apple patents a way to make all-glass devices and monitors"

    Yup. Apples patents are really headline grabbing. I wonder if an Apple employee went to the toilet today because if one did, I haven't read about it yet.

    Yup, here I am. You know what they say about soapies and Apple is just one big overpriced, overrated soapie, not that I watch soapie's but I like a good drama especially one where Apple comes 2nd.

    Overpriced? All phones are overpriced not just Apple. Most $600+ phones have manufacturing costs in the range of $190-240 not including R&D and supply chain costs... likely yielding $200-300 profit to Samsung, HTC, Apple.

    I couldn't agree more that they're all overpriced but Apple stands peerless at the pinnacle.

    such oxymoron... as there are no pinnacle unless you have irrefutable proof/fact that apple is the most overpriced.

    I don't need irrefutable proof, just common sense to know where to throw my money around. Apples prices differ from country to country, e.g. over here the old 5S is far more expensive than the new SGS5.
