Offline: touching the iPhone 5
Paul Miller on the iPhone 5:
The iPhone 5 isn’t comforting, but it’s empowering. It’s like holding a sharpened pencil, or a row of sharpened pencils. Your fingers move them with anticipation. You’re going to destroy this test. I feel the matte back like I’d test the graphite on a piece of paper, making sure my marks are deep, even Scantron-ready. If someone told me the iPhone 5 was whittled instead of assembled, I’d believe them. I’d like to play hockey with the phone, slap the phone on my knee like an instrument, stack a dozen phones like wooden blocks, maybe even bite it like a gold coin.
