New Glass Eliminates Reflections

A company called Nippon Electric Glass this week revealed a new glass coating that almost completely eliminates reflections and glare. The new "Invisible Glass" may be applicable to mobile devices, where lack of reflections would make displays much easier to see, especially outdoors and in other bright environments. The new glass is coated on each side with an anti-reflective film that consists of 30 layers. Because each layer is only nanometers thick, the film remains thin. The new Invisible Glass reflects only 0.5% of the light reaching it. By comparison, normal glass reflects 8% of light that hits the surface. A timeline for commercial production was not announced.

I thought i was a vampire

That's why they have this thing called INSURANCE. Physical damage is never covered under warranty unless its a defect that the company knows about. Luke the ipad2. Apple will replace a screen shatter upset if its cracked around the home button.
Physical damage is not covered under warranty, why would it be? A warranty protects you against manufacturer defect....if you drop your phone and it breaks, that is YOUR fault, not the manufacturer's.
Did three people seriously respond to your post thinking you were serious????

I read this as a joke and I am pretty sure it was....

Are people really this slow?

From 8% down to .5%? When I am standing outside in direct sunlight, a 900% reduction in glare will not help me, or anybody else. .5% reflection is not an elimination, it is a reduction.
